I don’t feel satisfied eating only vegetables and fruit.

While the Don't Go Hungry Diet is based on vegetables and fruit, that doesn't mean you should only eat vegetables and fruit. In order to lose weight effectively you also need decent amounts of protein-rich foods (such as dairy foods, meat and legumes), decent amounts of carbohydrate-rich foods (such as rice and wholegrain bread), and moderate amounts of fat-rich foods (such as nuts, cold-pressed oils and, sometimes, butter).

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. "
