These are the shoes that I bought for myself this winter. They fitted my feet well and got a tick for most of the features I needed to look for in a shoe, according to Harry the podiatrist. When looking for shoes for yourself, it's best to have your feet measured and fitted correctly. A sports store such as Athletes Foot or The Foot Locker can do this for you. Some stores will allow you to take the shoes away with you and walk around indoors with them (and take them to a podiatrist for a second opinion), and return them if they are not completely right for your feet. The right fit for your feet is the single most important thing to look for in a shoe.
What the experts say...
"Dr Amanda, Long time no write/hear. A lot has happened diet-wise since we last communicated. I have LEARNED. Never before have I dieted *for life*. Diets for me in the past have always been a means to an end. Your book has taught me many things. Mainly that a diet and the way we eat is a permanent thing, and secondly HOW to listen to my body when it's hungry and when it's full. At the beginning of this process my immediate goal was to quickly lose weight. This has evolved into a desire to lose weight, but at my body's pace. As a result, I am continuing to lose weight, but I've removed the time frame. My *long term* target is 80 kg, and in time, I believe I will achieve this. Once again, I thank you for your wise and sensible advice from one of the best books on the subject in print! Matthew P.S. Attached is my progress, kept updated since my last contact. I have now lost 11.5 kilos since I started your program nine months ago. "
