Dr. Amanda Don't Go Hungry Diet
The new scientific approach to dieting, without starving.
Dr. Amanda Sainsbury-Salis says, “Don’t Go Hungry!” Dr. Amanda is a molecular scientist who struggled with her own weight until she tuned-in to two mechanisms that were trying to tell her something- “The Famine Reaction” and the “Fat Reaction.”
By description, the Famine Reaction is the body’s way of telling you your food supply has become dangerously low. Thus, it begs for food. It demands that you eat. Dr. Amanda instructs us to satisfy this hunger, or we will continue to fight it. In fact, if it remains unsatiated, the urge will increase until it becomes so strong that we become doomed for failure. Dr. Amanda reminds us to eat until we are satisfied, so that we won't go hungry. She encourages us to focus on whole foods, including whole grains, fruits and vegetables. If the food we normally turn to is high on the Glycemic Index, she suggests we locate a food that is instead low on the index, thus increasing our ability to eat until satisfied, while producing long-term energy results.
The Glycemic Index is a well-known tool for deciphering the energy level carbohydrates produce. Foods high on the Glycemic Index will produce a rush of energy followed by an insulin-induced period of low energy. The reason? Highly processed carbohydrates turn quickly to sugar. Foods that are low on the Glycemic Index provide your body a sustained flow of energy and are far less likely to produce an insulin response, because all their energy is utilized for sustained activity. Foods included in the Low GI include whole grains and fresh fruits and vegetables.
The Don’t Go Hungry diet began with Dr. Amanda’s own journey. She states that she “dieted herself fat.” Since diets were not the answer for her, and for millions like her, she put the subject through a scientific review, using her own body as the first test capsule. When she discovered her body was going to fight her when it believed her food supply was dangerously low, she decided to satisfy her hunger. By utilizing wholesome foods to accomplish this goal, her body responded with both weight loss and health. When she reached her goal, she discovered the partner to the Famine Response, the Fat Response. This delicate signaling system helps us understand that our bodies are satisfied with the amount of food we have consumed. Its ability to make us uncomfortable, should we over indulge, is just as important as the body begging for nutrients. Dr. Amanda believes that by responding to our body’s signals, we can all achieve and maintain our desired weight.

As stated, Dr. Amanda is a proponent of whole foods. Although there are no taboo lists, she believes it is self-evident that if you provide your body with nutritious whole foods in any variety, it will respond by evoking the clearest signals possible for both optimum health and weight control. It takes time to re-educate one’s body as to what foods correctly provide the energy it desires. Thus, Dr. Amanda limits no foods, but advises that, when the Famine Reaction hits, use whole foods to satisfy it, whenever possible. Treats are part of life and should be enjoyed, she believes.EXERCISE
