Review by eclecticdodo
This book presents an alternative to diets. I was stunned by the statistics about how few people succeed on diets and how few of those keep it off long term. Suddenly I don't feel like such a failure! Diets only work as long as we stick to them, they don't solve the underlying issues of our relationship with food. Beyond Chocolate is about intuitive eating - trusting yourself to eat when you are hungry and stop when you are satisfied, with no food off limits. Following their simple principles, the authors claim, you will settle down to a healthy weight. So far it seems to be working, I've lost 9lb with very little effort. I'm hoping the follow-up book, Beyond Temptation, will have more on fighting the urge to comfort eat or eat out of boredom as this book was a little light on the practicalities.
