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!

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).
