What is the Fat Brake?
Your body not only has a Famine Reaction that protects you from losing weight, it also has an ingenious mechanism - the Fat Brake - that helps protect you from gaining weight. Whenever you eat more than you need, your Fat Brake blunts your appetite (notably your appetite for fattening foods) and boosts your metabolic rate. The result is that if you simply eat in accordance with your reduced physical hunger (e.g. if you don't feel hungry, do something else besides eat), you actually burn off any excesses extremely efficiently.
What our readers say...
"Dear Amanda, On another note, just in case you would like some uplifting words with regard to the wonderful work you are doing - i made a choice last year to stop worrying about food and just eat what i wanted... and was suprisingly rewarded with being 8 kilograms lighter, despite enjoying myself so much! and i have pretty much overcome my lifelong hate for food. So thankyou for your research and for writing your wonderful book. I am slowly trying to put the word out about your book to friends and family who have had a lifelong struggle with their weight, so i'm praying they will have positive results too! Regards, Nikki"
