A note from Zoe Goodkin, our editor at Piatkus.
“What I love most about Beyond Temptation is that it’s a book every woman will be able to identify with. Whatever our size, shape or weight, we’ve all had days when we’ve worked our way through an entire packet of biscuits out of sheer boredom, or finished a whole tub of ice cream after an argument with our partner and then beaten ourselves up for giving in to those moments of weakness and Sophie and Audrey Boss have been there too. Their personal experiences and work with hundreds of women through Beyond Chocolate has allowed them to create a unique programme for real women that gets to the heart of you relationship with food and, unlike traditional diet books, provides the opportunity for change in the long-term.”
Julia Buckroyd, Emeritus Professor of Counselling, University of Hertfordshire says…
“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. Warm, accepting, accessible, supportive – a book to give overeaters hope.”
“Accessible, moving, practical, honest. Beyond Temptation is the natural progression of Sophie and Audrey Boss’s first, radical book, Beyond Chocolate. It’s more practical than Beyond Chocolate, with tools that can help any woman unhappy about her relationship with food, eating and her body, but it is written in the same informal and accessible tone that made Beyond Chocolate such a success. The Boss sisters know what they are talking about and they write from the heart. I really felt like they understood me and my messy, complicated (and sometimes self-destructive) relationship with food. I can’t recommend Beyond Temptation enough.”
“Invaluable reading. Beyond Temptation is further support for giving up dieting. Dieting does NOT work but the tools in this book show you another way. Beyond chocolate and this latest book have given me the tools to trust myself and to have faith in my body. It’s easy to read and even easier to relate to. It’s an invaluable book to help you on the journey. Thanks to Beyond Chocolate and this latest book I have lost and kept off 3+ stones but more importantly than that I don’t battle with food like I used to.”
