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.

Is there a miracle solution to emotional eating? Probably not, but whatever [Audrey and Sophie Boss] are doing, I want a slice of it — Olivia Gordon, Sunday Telegraph (Stella)
How great to read a book about women and their relationship with food that focuses on the conversations we are all having with ourselves. It's a book that offers loads of ways of understanding just why so many of us women are such compulsive eaters.

I'm Just Happy to Be Here

Janelle Hanchett
Authors:
Janelle Hanchett

From the creator of the blog "Renegade Mothering," Janelle Hanchett's forthright, darkly funny, and ultimately empowering memoir chronicling her tumultuous journey from young motherhood to abysmal addiction and a recovery she never imagined possible.Pregnant at 22 by a man she'd known three months, Janelle Hanchett embraced motherhood with the determined optimism of the recklessly self-confident. After giving birth, she found herself bored, directionless, and seeking relief in wine, which she justified as sophisticated and going well with chicken.But over time, her questionable drinking habit spiraled into full-blown dependence, until life became bedtime stories and splitting hangovers, cubicles and multi-day drug binges--and eventually, an inconceivable separation from her children. For ten years, Hanchett grappled with the unyielding progression of addiction, bouncing from rehab to therapy to the occasional hippie cleansing ritual on her quest for sobriety, before finding it in a way she never expected.Hers is a story we rarely hear--of the addict mother not redeemed by her children; who longs for normalcy but cannot maintain it; and who, having traveled to seemingly irreversible depths, makes it back, only to discover she is still an outsider. Like her irreverent, laugh-out-loud funny, and unflinchingly honest blog, Hanchett's memoir calls out the rhetoric surrounding "the sanctity of motherhood" as tired and empty, boldly recounting instead how she grew to accept an imperfect self within an imperfect life--and think, "Well, I'll be damned, I'm just happy to be here."

Love Is an Inside Job

Romal Tune
Authors:
Romal Tune

Public relations expert and business consultant, ROMAL TUNE, provides insights on how authenticity with God will help you heal your past, love yourself, and equip you to emerge more powerful than ever.Tune is the son of a drug-addicted single parent mother, who herself, inherited deeply ingrained obstacles to self-love. He found his way out of poverty via the military. He graduated from Howard University and Duke School of Divinity. He was a minister, a sought-after speaker, and social entrepreneur. Outwardly, he was successful, an overcomer.Yet, his past, hidden childhood trauma would sometimes revolt, causing self-sabotage that threatened to destroy the life he was creating. He worked hard to keep the emotional brokenness caused by the challenges of his upbringing carefully hidden -especially from the church.His mother, with whom he successfully reconciled after she was finally free from addiction, died of lung cancer. Then he divorced--a second time.Feeling like a failure, questioning his faith and will to live, he made a choice to not to give up but to examine his life and seek counseling.Dubbed "Brother Brown" (a Black man's Brene Brown), his book shares his process of applying therapy and faith to anger, shame, self-doubt and plaguing memories.Romal learned that the pursuit of success was not the key to healing the inner turmoil but it was in learning to accept the love of God and learning to love the wounded child within.His past pain was redeemed as self-worth and he finally found inner peace. No longer carrying the weight of secrets, guilt and shame, he emerged emotionally free and more powerful than ever. His book will empower others to stop living a past driven present by healing their stories, embracing the love of God, and learning to truly love themselves.

The book teaches the reader about their body, posture types and muscle imbalances, and which Pilates technique would be best for them.Sweat: split into three key areas of the body so that the workout can be personalised to the readers' goals or weaknesses.

Beyond the Mat

Practicing yoga is an extremely popular way to get fit, but its underlying philosophy can offer so much more to calm the mind and discover untapped personal power. In BEYOND THE MAT, business leader, MD, and certified yoga teacher Julie Rosenberg shows you how to bring yoga out of the studio and into your personal and professional life to achieve success and become a more effective leader. She shares how yoga is more than just poses (though those do help with backs tired from hunching in front of the computer all day), with an explanation of the principles, real-life examples, and anecdotes from the author's own professional career. Yoga's philosophical principles extend far beyond the mat, for example:* Yama (yoga's moral precepts) apply to leadership--how we rightsize work in our lives, relate to colleagues, and cultivate compassion for ourselves and others* Dharana (being fully present) helps to manage time effectively, set healthy time limits on your work, and avoid distractions* Pranayama (breath control) mitigates stress and helps you stay calm in difficult situations

She has been telling her family all is well, when in fact, it was far from it. Jim was a controlling, difficult man, and Bridget has been ashamed to admit the truth.

The Food Addiction Recovery Workbook

Carolyn Coker Ross
Authors:
Carolyn Coker Ross

Isn't it time you got off the diet treadmill? In The Food Addiction Recovery Workbook, physician Carolyn Coker Ross offers the proven-effective Anchor ProgramT to help you curb cravings, end body dissatisfaction, manage stress and emotions without food, and truly satisfy your soul.If you're struggling with obesity or food addiction, you've probably been told that you must deprive yourself of certain foods in order to lose weight. You may have also been convinced-by the media and by our culture-that if you finally become thin your life will be better, you'll be happier, and your suffering will come to an end. The problem is-it's not all about the food. It's about how food is used to self-soothe, to numb ourselves against the pain of living or to cope with stress and unresolved emotions. Even as your waist whittles away, the problems that caused your food addiction won't disappear.The Anchor ProgramT approach detailed in this workbook is not about dieting. It's about being anchored to your true, authentic self. When you find your unique anchor, you will relate better to your body, you will know intuitively how to feed your body, and you will reach the weight that's right for you. Anyone who's been on the diet treadmill-losing and regaining lost weight-will admit that losing weight doesn't instantly bring health or happiness. That's because losing weight is a red herring for the real issue, the misuse of food to solve a problem that has nothing to do with food.This book offers a whole-person approach that blends practical information on managing stress and regulating emotions without relying on food. If you're ready to uncover the true cause of your food addiction, you'll finally be able to embrace a balanced diet and reach the weight that's right for you.

Dr John E. Sarno is a medical pioneer whose programme has helped thousands of patients overcome their back conditions - without drugs or serious surgery. Using his latest research into TMS (Tension Myositis Syndrome), Dr Sarno goes one step further: after identifying stress and other psychological factors in back pain, he demonstrates how many of his patients have then gone on to heal themselves without exercises or other physical therapy.Find out: Why self-motivated and successful people are prone to TMS; how anxiety and repressed anger trigger muscle spasms; how people 'train themselves' to experience back pain; how to get relief from back pain within two-to-six weeks by recognising TMS and its causes.With case histories and the results of in-depth mind- body research, Dr Sarno describes how patients recognise the emotional roots of their TMS and sever the connections between mental and physical pain... and how, just by reading this book, you may start recovering from back pain today.
