Publisher's Summary

Brain over Binge provides both a gripping personal account and an informative scientific perspective on bulimia and binge eating disorder. The author, Kathryn Hansen, candidly shares her experience as a bulimic and her alternative approach to recovery. Brain over Binge is different from other eating disorder books which typically present binge eating and purging as symptoms of complex emotional and psychological problems. Kathryn disputes this mainstream idea and explains why traditional eating disorder therapy failed her and fails many. She 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 brain to recover - quickly and permanently. Kathryn also sheds new light on eating disorder topics such as low self-esteem, poor body image, and dieting. Brain over Binge is a brave book that has helped many by delivering an informed and inspiring message of free will, self-reliance, and self-control.

Transforming hope to a reality

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Having read the book prior to purchasing the audio book I knew what I was in for - a completely radical yet simple way of addressing a life hijacking problem which silently and hidden affects many. I have found it very powerful to 'hear' the work and be able to replay sections where I was only half listening, and I am hopeful of really being able to embrace what seems such a genuine answer to a really difficult problem I have grappled with for years and years. I personally have even said to different therapists I had felt 'addicted to binge eating and not only the initial highs of that but the awful lows that follow.' How clearly this is expressed in this potentially life changing book, and amplified in its clear and understanding reading.

Thank you both for giving me hope, and I so hope that I (and many others) will be able not only to continue to 'touch' the concept, but to grab hold of it and totally embrace it, freeing myself (ourselves) from the chains of this disordered way of living and eating.

This is a humble clear self help book where Kathryn Hansen shares her life changing realisations and develops practical skills and techniques for suffers to use. Lydia Wente, herself a recovered bulimic binge eater adds a depth of understanding in her clear reading. Along with the hard copy this audio book makes and irresistible combination - and the same can be said of Kathryn and Lydia!
Thank you both for giving me hope, and I so hope that I will be able not only to continue to 'touch' the concept, but to grab hold of it and totally embrace it, freeing myself from the chains of this disordered way of living and eating, something which you have both been able to do through this new approach, and I'm sure many others have too. Thank you.
