What is the Famine Reaction?

The Famine Reaction is your body's way of protecting you from losing too much weight. The Famine Reaction is activated whenever your weight drops below a certain threshold. It triggers the nagging hunger and cravings for fattening foods that you've no doubt experienced while trying to lose weight in the past. The Famine Reaction also causes dramatic reductions in your metabolic rate and contributes to plateaus and rapid rebound weight gain.

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."
