Publisher's Summary

You're not broken, weak, or faulty because you binge on food. You're normal and, more importantly, you can fully recover. Let me explain...powerful binge cravings are a natural and normal side effect of food restriction. If you've ever restricted your food intake in your past (e.g. a diet, a detox program, cutting out carbs, etc.), then you may have triggered a primitive natural survival mechanism we call "primal hunger". This leads to powerful binge urges, an insatiable appetite, food obsession, depression, and anxiety. Your body thinks you're in the middle of a famine, and it's doing everything it can to make you eat lots of food. By purging your food, you remain malnourished, and your body is stuck in "primal hunger" mode.
Keep in mind, this has nothing to do with your upbringing, personality, or emotional state. This may come as a surprise, but studies show us that many of the symptoms that might have been thought to be specific to bulimia nervosa are actually the results of starvation (Pirke & Ploog, 1987). Chances are, you're perfectly normal and are just experiencing the natural and very normal side effects of a restrictive diet.
We don't ask you to analyze your painful past experiences or to examine any personality "flaws" that may have led to your bulimia, as there is no scientific evidence supporting the idea that resolving underlying psychological problems leads to recovery (Walsh & Cameron, 2005). Instead, we give you clear, practical steps to remove your primal hunger, stop bingeing and purging, relearn normal eating, and overcome bulimia for life. You can recover. There is a way.
This book will help you:


Make sense of your bulimia (because believe it or not, bulimia doesn't have to be confusing!)
Recover at a pace that suits you by following our step-by-step guide to recovery
Eliminate binge urges and cravings for life by restoring your body's own natural food regulation system

I would be lost without this book.

I've been listening to this book for a few weeks now, night and day. I feel like this has helped me so much with kickstarting my recovery. After 5 months of amenorrhea due to my ED I finally got my period back. I'm slowly but surely getting my life back. Food is finally not a top priority and my binging episodes have decreased dramatically. I can finally live and breathe. I'm so happy I found this book. So thankful!

The missing link

I found this book after listening to a you tube video with the author and Kathryn Hansen who wrote "Brain over Binge" I feel like this book tied everything together for me and I have not had a binge in many many weeks. About 6 weeks at this writing. That is the longest I have gone not binge eating for 44 years. It is a wonderful easy to listen to book. It is read by the author. He has a very nice voice and accent. I highly recommend this book.
