"Brain over Binge is different than other eating disorder books, which typically present binge eating and purging as symptoms of complex emotional and psychological problems. Kathryn Hansen, the author of Brain over Binge, disputes this mainstream idea and explains why traditional eating disorder therapy failed her and fails many. Kathryn explains how she came to understand her bulimia in a new way- as a function of her brain, and how she used the power of her own brain to recover - quickly and permanently. Sound theories and research support the ideas in this brave and refreshing new book, which holds promise for helping many who struggle with any form of binge eating." -- from author's website, http://www.brainoverbinge.com.

This book is a much-requested follow-up to Brain over Binge (2011), in which the author shared how she used a basic understanding of neuroscientific principles to overcome bulimia. In this sequel and companion volume, with the help of fellow specialists and authors Amy Johnson, Ph.D., Katherine Thomson, Ph.D., and others, Kathryn Hansen lays out those same principles--and many more--in a self-help format that educates and empowers binge eaters to pursue recovery efficiently and effectively. Although recovery is not the same for everyone, this book posits that there are only two essential goals that must be met to end bulimia and binge eating disorder: (1) learning to dismiss urges to binge and (2) learning to eat adequately. As you work toward these goals with a streamlined focus, you will discover your own strength, develop your own insights, and put into practice ideas and behaviors that work uniquely and authentically for you. The Brain over Binge Recovery Guide is comprehensive in its length and scope, but utterly simple in its approach: You will read and use only what you need--continuing on in the book if you feel you need more information and guidance; putting it down and moving on with your life when you feel you're ready--so that you can start living binge-free as quickly and easily as possible.

Severe dieting often results in periods of reactive binge eating, a phenomenon experienced by one in twenty American women. Responses to these periods may include prolonged fasting, self-induced vomiting, abuse of laxatives and diuretics, and obsessive exercise: all symptoms of bulimia. This workbook contains tools to help bulimics break the cycle of bingeing and reacting, allowing them to take control of their lives and make positive behavior changes. Practical advice and real-life examples reinforce attitudes and offer encouragement. Discover that it is possible to overcome the disorder and live a happier, more fulfilling life. Through their cutting-edge research at the internationally renown Toronto Hospital Eating Disorders Programme, the authors of The Overcoming Bulimia Workbook have developed a step-by-step program for recovery whose efficacy has been proven in clinical trials. The authors empower bulimia suffers to take control of their lives, not only by providing information and advice, but by giving them a personalized format with which they can put these new behavior changes into practice - a process that is critically important for lasting recovery. This comprehensive guide covers everything from bulimia's symptoms, causes, and risks to how to normalize eating, shift eating-disordered thoughts, build on personal strengths, improve self-esteem, deal with underlying issues, prevent relapse, and understand what medications can help. With many real-life examples, this book also helps readers learn through the experiences of other sufferers how to overcome their disorder and live a happier, more fulfilled life.

The publication four years ago of Getting Better Bit(e) by Bit(e), written by two eating disorder specialists at London's world-famous Maudsley Hospital, was a milestone in the treatment of bulimia. For the first time a self-help book was shown, by rigorous clinical trials, to cure a significant fraction of women suffering from bulimia, and to reduce the therapist contact time needed by others. Getting Better Bit(e) by Bit(e) offered an efficient way of treating bulimic patients, which would be valued by any resource-conscious health service. The authors of Getting Better Bit(e) by Bit(e) have now written this Clinician's Guide, to help health care professionals maximize the benefit that patients obtain from the self-help book. Based on the authors' wide-ranging experience of treating eating disorder patients, it provides a step-by-step account of how the chapters in Getting Better Bit(e) by Bit(e) can be used to ameliorate various aspects of bulimics' difficulties, with examples drawn from real patients' case histories. Particular emphasis is given to the problem of motivating patients who are reluctant to change their behaviour, using Miller and Rollnick's motivational interviewing approach. The Clinician's Guide to Getting Better Bit(e) by Bit(e) will be invaluable for all those treating sufferers of bulimia.

From an obesity and neuroscience researcher with a knack for engaging, humorous storytelling, The Hungry Brain uses cutting-edge science to answer the questions: why do we overeat, and what can we do about it? No one wants to overeat. And certainly no one wants to overeat for years, become overweight, and end up with a high risk of diabetes or heart disease--yet two thirds of Americans do precisely that. Even though we know better, we often eat too much. Why does our behavior betray our own intentions to be lean and healthy? The problem, argues obesity and neuroscience researcher Stephan J. Guyenet, is not necessarily a lack of willpower or an incorrect understanding of what to eat. Rather, our appetites and food choices are led astray by ancient, instinctive brain circuits that play by the rules of a survival game that no longer exists. And these circuits don’t care about how you look in a bathing suit next summer. To make the case, The Hungry Brain takes readers on an eye-opening journey through cutting-edge neuroscience that has never before been available to a general audience. The Hungry Brain delivers profound insights into why the brain undermines our weight goals and transforms these insights into practical guidelines for eating well and staying slim. Along the way, it explores how the human brain works, revealing how this mysterious organ makes us who we are.
