Description

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.

Nouvelle perspective sur les troubles alimentaires

L'auteure nous livre en toute transparence son histoire et l'on se reconnaît en elle (pour ceux/celles qui ont des "troubles" alimentaires), jusqu'aux détails qu'on ose rarement avouer quand on a ce genre de comportements tellement on a honte!
Cette 1ere partie "témoignage" est un beau miroir qui nous permet de réaliser que d'autres personnes vivent les mêmes choses que nous (souvent on pense qu'il n'y a que nous qui vivons cela!).
Ensuite la partie "solution" est vraiment éclairante sur les mécanismes qui se passent au niveau du cerveau. C'est expliqué de manière simple et c'est totalement différent des autres approches psy où l'on remonte dans le passé pour chercher les causes. J'avais déjà commencé à manger en conscience et cela m'avais bien aidée à reconnecter avec mes sensations corporelles de faim et de satiété mais j'avais toujours des compulsions (un peu moins mais toujours quand même). Ce livre de Kathryn Hansen m'a vraiment aidée à agir de moins en moins souvent sous l'impulsion de ces envies incontrôlables, en reconnaissant ces pulsions comme des messages automatiques et erronés provenant d'une partie du cerveau. Ces pulsions sont en quelque sorte des pensées à forte charge nous incitant à manger mais elles ne sont pas "vraies" (ce n'est pas ce que l'on veut vraiment même si sur le moment on a l 'impressions que c'est ce qu'on veut vraiment. La preuve c'est qu'une fois la pulsion passée on regrette..)
Même si il m'arrive encore parfois de vivre ces pulsions, elles sont beaucoup moins fréquentes et en moins grosse quantité qu'avant et je ressens qu'en continuant à pratiquer les outils de ce livre, elles finiront par disparaître totalement (c'est un processus dont la durée sera différente pour chacun).
Je recommande vraiment les livres de Kathryn Hansen à toutes les personnes qui ont des compulsions/boulimies/hyperphagies/envies incontrôlables ainsi que les travaux de Amy Johnson et Lydia Wente (vous trouverez plein de ressources gratuites sur leur site internet).

It worked for me

Any additional comments?

I wish I could give this book more than 5 stars. It is very detailed, clearly explains every concept, and gives a totally different approach to dealing with bulimia or BED. I also appreciated the author's personal story. There was much that I easily related to.

I was a binge eater for about 40 years. I quit binge eating before I finished the book. My whole attitude toward food has changed. I did not expect that, and I am so grateful to have found this book.

Please re-record this book!

I think it's a good book. It's the author's personal account of how she uses Rational Recovery methods to end her bingeing. It's inspired me to find some other books that are helping me a lot. Honestly, though...I couldn't finish listening!! The narrator's sinus issues, her drone-like reading, and the choppy editing are all terrible. The narration doesn't do the content justice. I'll look for a copy at Half-Priced Books and finish what I couldn't stand to listen to any longer. Re-record this book!

If I hadn't listened to this book myself!

if i hadn't listened to this book myself, I wouldn't have believed it! I am a 51 year old male. I've been to over eaters anonymous, been to 3 different nutritionists, a psychologist, a clinical weight loss program, have been a member of several gyms in an effort to lose weight and was even prescribed phentermine at one time. I have been struggling with binge eating and sugar cravings and have damaged my body for years from binging on sugar. I have never been able to control my sugar cravings and have been addicted to sugar since childhood. This book in 3 DAYS !!!!! CHANGED MY LIFE !!!! Like I said. I know it sounds unbelievable . My struggle is over! Besides a little bit of sadness from thinking about how my life could have possibly been so much better had I known this information years ago, I couldn't be happier. Thank You so much Kathryn Hansen. Words cannot express my gratitude. p.s. My better half has also used this information to quit smoking. I urged her to replace "urge to binge" with "urge to smoke". Her first 3 days for were quite difficult but After 22 years as a smoker she is completely Smoke free.

Powerful ideas based on personal experience

This book contains story of the author's struggle and recovery followed by the detailed analysis rooted in neuroscience.

Ideas presented in this book are easily generalizable to other eating disorders and bad eating habits. I personally don't have bulimia. What I have is a bad eating habit which I was not able to stop in many years. It does not cause me any emotional suffering, but does cause my weight to hover 25 lbs above of what I believe it should be and what it was before I developed this bad habit.

The core message of this book is that your cravings are not you. Cravings originate in your animal brain and your human brain is capable of simply observing these thoughts without acting on them. Such dissociation makes the cravings to lose their power and over time cures the addiction.

I liked the narration of this book. It turns out that the book was narrated by a person who suffered from bulimia and cured after reading the book.

Overall I enjoyed listening to this book, learned the science behind the food addiction and one powerful technique for stopping it.

Too long, Poor Editing

I like the simple message she was delivering and how it's a different perspective on binge recovery. There is a lot of research out there regarding 'retraining your brain', emphasizing breaking conditioned neural pathways and forming new ones, and knowing that I was able to really connect with her message.

However, this book was TOO long. Her extensive description of her history and specific details of life events could've been shortened exponentially, and many times felt repetitive or unnecessary. There was also poor editing done as I'm pretty sure the phrase "urges to binge" was used at least 1000+ times, qualifying it as a new drinking game as whenever you hear it spoken.

The quality of the audiobook is also subpar. No excitement in the reader, so it sounds like a monotone robot throughout the entire book. Not to mention, starting in Part 2, they didn't take mistakes out so you hear her repeating the beginning of the sentence over and over, plus some static, etc.

Overall, maybe I would recommend if someone was desperate enough or I thought would connect to the long message, but it's an amateur book at best.

Natrator is hard to listen to

Information is great, narration is so bad

Information is good enough to power through the truly awful narrator. Nasal and robotic voice.

Revolutionary perspective on ED behaviors

Kathryn Hansen has done something that many therapists have failed to acknowledge in my life for years: sometimes it really is about the food. She takes more of a biological approach to understanding the causes of binge/purge behavior and explores some mindfulness-based practices to overcome these patterns. This book is all about reclaiming our own higher brains power to make choices for health instead of getting stuck in the loop of addictive behavior. I found the material presented extremely helpful and inspirational all though certainly not a cure-all. But that is also partly Kathryn's point - you don't have to fix your life in order to stop acting out on ED behaviors. Thank you Kathryn for sharing your journey into and out of your lower brain <3 Note: The audio version has some editing errors and glitches here and there but did not keep me from enjoying the content.

Great-life changing content - terrible narrator!

This book changed my life and my view of my eating disorder. The content is great but the narrator is awful! It’s almost robotic and hard to listen to, sometimes it nearly puts me to sleep. It’s choppy and doesn’t flow.

The most helpful book so far

Any additional comments?

If you want to get to the real process, skip to chapter 10. This is a very helpful book.

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).

Brilliant!

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