Anne wins her race"I started dieting when I was about 15 and have tried every diet known to man. While some diets worked in the short term, long term they haven't provided me with a way of managing my weight.
In April 2008 I weighed 83.6 kilos, the heaviest I have ever been. I decided to start a 12-month coaching programme with Amanda. Her approach of listening to your body's needs made sense. As well it was important to me to have ongoing face-to-face support.
My weight loss has been modest. I've lost about 5 kilos over nine months and am targeting 6-7 kilos for the year. I'm very happy with this and believe that as long as I can either maintain or lose weight I'm winning i.e. I'm in control of my weight."

What our readers say...
"Thanks so much for your book. I don't usually buy books like this but it put itself into my hands when I was in a department store (Target) of all places. Your information has filled what seemed to be a crucial gap in my knowledge (i.e. about the famine reaction/fat brake) and it also seems intuitively so right. Although my weight is not too much of an issue now, everything you wrote made so much sense that I lost a couple of kilos just by thinking about and getting excited about the ideas and changing a few little habits I had gotten into. I just wish I could better express how much of a revelation your book was/is. Thanks again. "
