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
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!
