Suddenly it all makes sense! After a nearly 20 year struggle I finally understand that actually I have the tools I need to walk away from something that is just a habit, a life destroying one but still only that! Thanks so much for putting my battle into words that are so relatable and providing an answer that until now has been so elusive! although it is only early days, knowing I have a choice and this is not beyond my control is so freeing! If you ever visit New Zealand I would love to hi 5 you!
This is not just a book for binge eaters but a succinct and insightful account of the inner workings of any addictive or compulsive behavior and strategies for over coming them. It also explains how traditional treatments can be more harmful than helpful. It gives hope to those that have tried it all without lasting success.
Definitely giving me a new perspective on BED and the brain over binge methods. I've spent so much time and money on treatment. This is a refreshing look on how our brain works and how to use the higher brain to put a stop to the urges to binge from the lower brain.
As soon as I read Kathryn's explanation of why people binge eat I knew it rang true for me. It has changed my life and given me hope that I can rewire my brain so that the "You must eat and you must eat NOW!" message no longer loops around in my head. I am not binge free yet but each week my bingeing habit is diminishing. THANK YOU SO MUCH Kathryn x
Honestly, this information is life changing. It needs to be shared as much as possible. We can finally take back our lives and stop worrying about food. By far the most empowering book I am ever likely to encounter. I cannot say enough about this discovery. All I can do is thank Kathryn Hanson for giving me my life back. It is now my mission to direct anyone in need to this book, so that they may also be empowered in life.
This book is brilliant. It has completely changed my perspective on my eating disorder and I have started recovery. I feel confident that my recovery will be permanent now that I have read this book. Such simple, life changing information! Thank you so much!
