How can I lose weight if I eat wholesome but fattening foods?

I want to bury this myth once and for all: there's no such thing as fattening food. The only thing about food that can make you fat is repeatedly eating when you don't feel hungry. While I'm on the subject, there's no such thing as slimming food, either. To lose weight and keep it off all you need to do is eat a large variety of mainly whole foods, especially vegetables and fruit, eat just enough to satisfy your physical hunger, and do some form of regular physical activity. That's why you don't worry if some of the natural foods you eat happen to be high in fat or kilojoules or whatever.

What the experts say...

"Hello Amanda, I am a Yoga Teacher and Personal Trainer and am now recommending your book to all my clients who are trying to lose weight. Several who have started the program have been as relieved and as impressed as I was to have such a sympathetic and practical reference on their journey. My philosophy is to 'set your body free' and I note that yours is 'connect with your body'. How wonderful! I believe your work will have a huge impact on the world and will help many, many people. With best wishes for great success."
