Beyond Temptation

How to stop overeating and feel normal and in control around food

By Audrey Boss and Sophie Boss

  • Paperback
  • £8.99

A follow up to the successful Beyond Chocolate - this time addressing overeating as a barrier to weightloss.

In Beyond Temptation Sophie and Audrey Boss offer a radical alternative to the tried and tested methods used to combat overeating which either encourage women to rely on willpower alone, or legitimise overeating by providing lists of 'free foods' on which women are actively encouraged to binge.

This book doesn't rely on NLP, CBT or life coaching techniques, but instead draws on the authors' own experiences as two overweight and unhappy overeaters and their ten years of experience working with thousands of failed dieters in the 'Beyond Chocolate' workshops and the successful techniques used in their newly established 'Stop Overeating' workshops to offer women a practical, sustainable approach to stopping overeating and achieving long term weight loss.

Biographical Notes

Sophie and Audrey Boss are sisters in their 30s. Following years of struggling with their weight, they founded a support group called Beyond Chocolate. They are passionate about their message and have experience of working with women of all ages and backgrounds.

How great to read a book about women and their relationship with food that focuses on the conversations we are all having with ourselves.

What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Fibromyalgia (Fourth Edition)

Claudia Craig Marek, R. Paul St. Amand
Authors:
Claudia Craig Marek, R. Paul St. Amand

In the two decades since this book was first published, diagnoses of this disease have exploded. Most patients with fibromyalgia are on as astonishing array of medications--sometimes taking over 10 different medications and supplements a day to treat symptoms ranging from muscle pain and fatigue to hypoglycemia, IBS, and chronic candidiasis--and they still can't control their pain. What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Fibromyalgia is still the only protocol that actually treats the condition, reduces drug dependency, and offers an actual cure. The fourth edition goes deeper into understanding the disease and the early intervention options that are available. With special attention paid to fatigue and pain management, Dr. St. Armand goes into great detail about the big issues surrounding fibromyalgia today, including:A close look at supplements, including CBS oil--an unregulated market without the same scientific rigor as most medicationsGuaifenesin as a drug that does work, eliminating symptoms and restoring normal life to an astonishing 90 percent of the fibromyalgia sufferersA discussion of pharmaceuticals in treatment, and why "medical Band-Aids" won't treat the disease

From YouTube rising stars Nina and Randa Nelson comes the doctor-approved, clinically-tested, low-fat vegan diet that instantly and dramatically transformed their skin.The Clear Skin Diet is the natural and safe solution to banish acne and remain acne-free for good. The vegan diet, developed by twin actors and social media stars Nina and Randa Nelson (whose careers and personal lives were nearly destroyed by out of control acne) teaches people how to naturally conquer acne once and for all.Before they created The Clear Skin Diet, Nina and Randa and-tried nearly everything to deal with their acne-expensive facials, lotions, antibiotics, and other painful procedures. Several doctors told them their only hope for recovery was Accutane. So they decided to try to deal with their problem from the inside out-by changing their diet. Their dietary intervention worked, and there has been no stopping them since. The girls now share the good news about how they achieved beautiful skin without drugs with millions of people across the world, many of whom write regularly with their own heart-warming success stories. The recipes Nina and Randa created for The Clear Skin Diet are based on diets eaten by a variety of people around the world who have no acne in their society, such as Papua New Guinea, Eastern Paraguay, and rural South Africa. The food is healthy, starch-based, low-fat, inexpensive, and delicious. An acne solution and easy diet, all in one.

The pH Miracle For Diabetes

Robert O. Young
Authors:
Robert O. Young

Millions of people around the world suffer from diabetes, and the figure is climbing - in the next decade cases are expected to triple in Europe. What this groundbreaking book proposes is that this serious and debilitating disease is entirely preventable. For those already suffering, this plan can reduce or even eliminate the need for insulin or oral medication of any kind. If you want to prevent or reverse diabetes, you should follow the guidelines in THE pH MIRACLE FOR DIABETES. Dr Robert Young and his wife, Shelley, reveal a revolutionary diet and lifestyle program that unlocks the secrets of pH balance and of food as a healer, restorer, balancer and life-giver. They illustrate that the single most important measurement of your health is the pH of your blood and tissues - in fact, the entire metabolic process depends on an alkaline environment and chronic over-acidity corrodes body tissue. THE pH MIRACLE FOR DIABETES is a proven program that explains which foods to eat, which foods can be combined safely, which should be eaten alone, which should be avoided altogether.
