If the Fat Brake is so good, how did I gain weight in the first place?

The Fat Brake is an ingenious system, but it's also extremely delicate. Eating a lot of processed fatty foods is scientifically proven to damage the fat brake. What's more, it's easy to override the Fat Brake by eating when you don't feel hungry. To help your Fat Brake function at its best you need to eat mainly whole foods (with plenty of vegetables and fruits), eat only when you feel hungry and stop when you've honestly had enough. Even people with the weakest Fat Brakes are able to lose weight and keep it off with these simple safeguards.

What the experts say...

"Dr Amanda Sainsbury-Salis brings a touch of reality as well as a good healthy dose of scientific understanding to her approach to weight control. Not only is Amanda amongst the best scientists in the world in obesity research, but she has been through the problem herself and found that the standard recommendations don't necessarily work - particularly for women, who are much more complicated creatures than men. You'll find this a refreshing approach in an often very tired old field. I thoroughly recommend it."
