What’s the difference between your diet and on-again-off-again diets?
When you follow the Don't Go Hungry Diet, you'll sometimes eat similarly to how you would eat if you were following a nutritionally balanced conventional diet. At other times, your Famine Reaction may be trying hard to stop you from losing more weight and you'll feel more hungry and need to eat more. While this may seem like 'going off the diet', it's very different because you continue to eat a large variety of mainly whole foods, especially vegetables and fruit, you continue to eat until you feel physically satisfied, and you continue to do regular physical activity. So, unlike going on and off conventional diets, consistently following the Don't Go Hungry Diet results in permanent weight loss.
What our readers say...
"Dear Dr Amanda, Just a quick thank you for sending my parcel. I am totally enjoying reading what you have to say. I am wondering just how many people have 'discovered' you and if they haven't why not? As I mentioned to you briefly the other day, I have been through Fit for Life, Pritikin, Weight Watchers, Too Good To Be True and Tony Ferguson's diets and have eventually put a good deal of what I did lose back on. BUT, and this might seem a bit premature, I am SO EXCITED about starting on your 'diet'. I have never read anywhere (and my husband and I have done a great deal of reading about nutrition and weight loss), anything like you are advocating. I understand fully what you are saying and it all makes so much sense. I have never been excited about losing weight before (it has all been in the too-hard-basket) but I really am enjoying following your guidelines. If ever I am asked who I'd vote for as Australian of the Year I'd have to say you. I truly hope that more and more people 'find' you Amanda and that those who have tried and failed at all the other so-called weight loss "experts" have their lives changed and enhanced by your research and advice. Anyway, so much for the quick note! Thanks again Amanda and I congratulate you on your website. It is most informative and very user-friendly! Warm regards, Kaye Frost-Smith PS I have spent all morning making your Cottage Pie, and from licking the spoon it tastes fantastic!"
