Inhaltsangabe

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.

Changed my life

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

I dealt with binge eating since I was around 15 (I'm 23 now). For a really long time I didn't even know it was a thing. I never heard of anyone else who dealt with this, I was ashamed, I didn't talk about it.
This book changed everything. I realised that there are people out there who have the exact same urges and issues occurring with them. I downloaded this book 9 days ago and haven't binged since. That never happened.
I'm so optimistic now. Here in Germany many people do lent (religious or not) and I did not even feel like deciding I'd quite binging like I did for every new year, new month, new everything for the past..Idk years.
I feel like I'm done with it. I'm not scared at all that I'll start again. I went out with friends yesterday. We had bunch of snacks and everyone ate kind of uncontrolled. I ate some chocolate, some popcorn, a burger..but I did not get the feeling that when I'm home alone I'll continue to eat uncontrolled like I usually got. That was my life for so long..it's so relieving.
I'm still stressed out about classes sometimes, it still sucks that my boyfriend and me had to break up because of distance, I'm still worried about my parents sometimes..all these problems are still there but they never caused the binging and this book helped me realizing it.
I can recommend it to everyone who struggles with uncontrolled eating patterns. For me, it changed everything!

good but too long

The book presents a very good and interesting an quite simply eye opening approach, that could really work in day to day life. We always think /try to solve too many issues / problems and answer too many questions about our lives to be able to be happy. But the approach presented can actually work in our everyday life. The idea is so simple yet for so many of us so difficult to grasp or apply. But it works. At least for me :)

That being said, the book could have been easily the third of its actual length. Long books don't bother me as long as they keep giving me more to know and to discover. But this just was repetiiiiition. Perhaps that feeling was also intensfied with the reader. The reading was quite dull. I knw it is not a novel, still...
So Thank you for the eye opening ideas in the book! really!! just be concise:)

Eyes opening! Completely new approach!

I recommend this book to everyone struggle with feeling not under control when it comes to food!!

This really empowered me, to finally believe, I actually can recover by myself (with the insights I got out of this book)! I always sensed I am not a psychological mess (sure I have flaws, but nothing other people without BED occasionally have as well), but still I binged, gained weight after stop dieting & purging.. I didn’t even go to therapy because somehow I knew (if I don’t find the right therapist), it won’t address the ‚problem‘. This book did! I just finished it, so I cannot say yet with enough confidence, I recovered for sure, but I already feel a difference how I experience my urges and I experiment with them: like eating just one piece of chocolate and see what happen: I ate just ONE piece of chocolate!! Almost unimaginable before listening to this book! My urges to binge feel so much less threatening. It’s the first time I think I can recover (or maybe already did) and it doesn’t feel fake. Thank you for making me aware of the only true reasons I binge: urges to binge because of a)dieting(survival instincts) and b)a formed habit(binged produced brain wiring problem).

Brilliant!

Fantastic! A whole new approach that not only makes complete sense in theory, but also really works. Highly recommend.
