At 47, Amanda Byram is in the shape of her life, both mentally and physically, but for over two decades she was trapped in a cycle of yo-yo dieting and self-criticism, convinced that unless she was ‘perfect’ she wouldn’t be happy or worthy. By the time she reached her 40th birthday, she was mentally and physically exhausted … something had to change.
The Switch is a distillation of all the simple and life-changing techniques, tips and tricks she used to get herself off the ‘perfection treadmill’ once and for all. She shares how to silence the critical internal voices that hold us back, and how to ditch diets for good and eat and exercise in a way that will give you power, not problems.
Switch to a balanced lifestyle where food, fitness, family, friends and self-care are all in sync and discover the happiest and healthiest version of yourself – a life-changing guide for a lean and serene future!
