This book details in plain (not medical) language everything about the Binge Eating Disorder, which is now recognized as a separate entity by psychiatrists. I recommend it for anyone who has difficulty controlling their eating, going from diet to diet and hating their compulsive overeating and themselves. I think it would supplement the Overeaters Anonymous members’ program and help those in therapy.
An Excellent Guide to Understanding Binge Eating as an
Addition, Learning Control, and Learning Trigger Keys.
It’s an excellent book. What I discovered, though, is that I am not actually a binge eater myself. Still, it is worth the read. An easy read with many insights and suggestions. For some, binge eating is actually an addiction.

I have been suffering from (BED) all my life. I did not know what was wrong with
me. This book helped me to come to an understanding of my problem and gave me
hope for fighting my disease. I cannot recommend, more this book for the valuable
information it has given me.
An Excellent Resource

This is a comprehensive guide that I believe would be helpful to anyone who is suffering from binge eating, or who loves someone who suffers from this disorder.
The book covers the whole spectrum, from diagnosis to recovery. It is full of great advice and tips on how to overcome binge eating. It also includes information for those who are trying to help a loved one overcome this disorder.
I only gave 4 stars instead of 5 because I found the first couple of chapters poorly
organized and confusing in parts. I think the writing could have been a little more
engaging as well, but it is still a great book and an excellent resource for anyone who
has a life touched by binge eating.

I believe all of us know someone who struggles with binging and purging. They may have told you, or they may be struggling in secret and are too ashamed to tell you. If someone expresses this struggle to you, they will need your support instead of your condemnation. How can you be ready to help? Learn about the disorder. Read a book like this one. Give the person who opens up to you something to assist them like this book.
