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 our readers say...
"Dear Dr Amanda, this is the first time I have written to you but really felt the need to tell you what a positive impact your book and newsletters have had on me. This newsletter is no exception – the article on the Famine Reaction is an eye opener to me – I have felt it and experienced it and didn’t know what it was. As the article indicates, I tried to “fight” it and figure out what was “wrong” with me. As I answered the questions you suggested, I realize that it was a feeling of being “out of control” and so fearful to give in to the message my body was giving me – fear that if I ever started eating I would never stop! While I would still like to loose about 10 pounds, I am delighted to say that after a lifetime of dieting/binging and having NO freedom in eating (I am 60 years old), I am finally listening to my body and trusting it to tell me what it needs. And ………………. the result is that I truly desire healthy nutritious foods most of the time, but at times want something that used to be on “no way” list. As I listen to my body I am experiencing the ability to have a limited amount of something (like chocolate) and not binge on it. This is just amazing to me! Thank you for your wonderful support. "
