"Brain over Binge is different than other eating disorder books, which typically present binge eating and purging as symptoms of complex emotional and psychological problems. Kathryn Hansen, the author of Brain over Binge, disputes this mainstream idea and explains why traditional eating disorder therapy failed her and fails many. Kathryn 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 own brain to recover - quickly and permanently. Sound theories and research support the ideas in this brave and refreshing new book, which holds promise for helping many who struggle with any form of binge eating." -- from author's website, http://www.brainoverbinge.com.

This book is a much-requested follow-up to Brain over Binge (2011), in which the author shared how she used a basic understanding of neuroscientific principles to overcome bulimia. In this sequel and companion volume, with the help of fellow specialists and authors Amy Johnson, Ph.D., Katherine Thomson, Ph.D., and others, Kathryn Hansen lays out those same principles--and many more--in a self-help format that educates and empowers binge eaters to pursue recovery efficiently and effectively. Although recovery is not the same for everyone, this book posits that there are only two essential goals that must be met to end bulimia and binge eating disorder: (1) learning to dismiss urges to binge and (2) learning to eat adequately. As you work toward these goals with a streamlined focus, you will discover your own strength, develop your own insights, and put into practice ideas and behaviors that work uniquely and authentically for you. The Brain over Binge Recovery Guide is comprehensive in its length and scope, but utterly simple in its approach: You will read and use only what you need--continuing on in the book if you feel you need more information and guidance; putting it down and moving on with your life when you feel you're ready--so that you can start living binge-free as quickly and easily as possible.

The publication four years ago of Getting Better Bit(e) by Bit(e), written by two eating disorder specialists at London's world-famous Maudsley Hospital, was a milestone in the treatment of bulimia. For the first time a self-help book was shown, by rigorous clinical trials, to cure a significant fraction of women suffering from bulimia, and to reduce the therapist contact time needed by others. Getting Better Bit(e) by Bit(e) offered an efficient way of treating bulimic patients, which would be valued by any resource-conscious health service. The authors of Getting Better Bit(e) by Bit(e) have now written this Clinician's Guide, to help health care professionals maximize the benefit that patients obtain from the self-help book. Based on the authors' wide-ranging experience of treating eating disorder patients, it provides a step-by-step account of how the chapters in Getting Better Bit(e) by Bit(e) can be used to ameliorate various aspects of bulimics' difficulties, with examples drawn from real patients' case histories. Particular emphasis is given to the problem of motivating patients who are reluctant to change their behaviour, using Miller and Rollnick's motivational interviewing approach. The Clinician's Guide to Getting Better Bit(e) by Bit(e) will be invaluable for all those treating sufferers of bulimia.

From an obesity and neuroscience researcher with a knack for engaging, humorous storytelling, The Hungry Brain uses cutting-edge science to answer the questions: why do we overeat, and what can we do about it? No one wants to overeat. And certainly no one wants to overeat for years, become overweight, and end up with a high risk of diabetes or heart disease--yet two thirds of Americans do precisely that. Even though we know better, we often eat too much. Why does our behavior betray our own intentions to be lean and healthy? The problem, argues obesity and neuroscience researcher Stephan J. Guyenet, is not necessarily a lack of willpower or an incorrect understanding of what to eat. Rather, our appetites and food choices are led astray by ancient, instinctive brain circuits that play by the rules of a survival game that no longer exists. And these circuits don’t care about how you look in a bathing suit next summer. To make the case, The Hungry Brain takes readers on an eye-opening journey through cutting-edge neuroscience that has never before been available to a general audience. The Hungry Brain delivers profound insights into why the brain undermines our weight goals and transforms these insights into practical guidelines for eating well and staying slim. Along the way, it explores how the human brain works, revealing how this mysterious organ makes us who we are.

The 10th Anniversary Edition of the book that has given hope and inspiration to thousands who are dealing with eating disorders "If you or someone you love has an eating disorder, this is the book to read." —Dr. Phil Jenni had been in an abusive relationship with Ed for far too long. He controlled Jenni’s life, distorted her self-image, and tried to physically harm her throughout their long affair. Then, in therapy, Jenni learned to treat her eating disorder as a relationship, not a condition. By thinking of her eating disorder as a unique personality separate from her own, Jenni was able to break up with Ed once and for all. Inspiring, compassionate, and filled with practical exercises to help you break up with your own personal E.D., Life Without Ed provides hope to the millions of people plagued by eating disorders. Beginning with Jenni’s “divorce” from Ed, this supportive, lifesaving book combines a patient’s insights and experiences with a therapist’s prescriptions for success to help you live a healthier, happier life without Ed.

It will remain a classic for decades to come." —Michael E. Berrett, PhD, psychologist; CEO and cofounder of the Center for Change; coauthor of Spiritual Approaches in the Treatment of Women with Eating Disorders "[Life Without Ed] was the first [book] to teach readers that they can not only separate from their eating disorder, but also disagree with and disobey it. I wholeheartedly recommend this witty, hopeful guide to patients, carers, professionals, and anyone else who wants to understand what it's really like to live with an eating disorder and ultimately triumph over it." —Jennifer J.

Little changes can make a big, big difference! In The Little Book of Big Change, psychologist Amy Johnson shows you how to rewire your brain and overcome your bad habits—once and for all. No matter what your bad habit is, you have the power to change it. Drawing on a powerful combination of neuroscience and spirituality, this book will show you that you are not your habits. Rather, your habits and addictions are the result of simple brain wiring that is easily reversed. By learning to stop bad habits at the source, you will take charge of your habits and addictions for good. Anything done repeatedly has the potential to form neural circuitry in the brain. In this light, habits and addictions are impersonal brain wiring problems that result from taking your habitual thinking as truth, and acting on that thinking in the form of doing your habit—over and over. This book offers a number of small changes you can make in your everyday life that will help you stop your bad habit in its tracks. If you want to understand the science behind your habit, make the decision to end it, and commit to real, lasting change, this book will help you to finally take charge of your life—once and for all.

In the summer of 1994, C.B. Miller was a bright-eyed, quick-witted twenty-one-year-old with his entire life ahead of him. He was about to start his junior year of college, and he was keenly focused on realizing his dream of becoming a high school teacher and coach. As C.B. was educating himself to start a career, his father, Mike, was preparing to retire from one. With the last of his four children nearing the end of school, Mike intended to exit from the work force, anticipating more free time to travel with his wife, Sharon. Each with plans of their own, father and son both eagerly awaited their futures. As chronicled in A Matter of Recovery, all of that would change in an instant one fateful night. A Matter of Recovery: The Story of C.B. Miller follows C.B., Mike, their family, and a community of friends through a challenging journey, one that begins with sheer survival and ends with hard-won success. By sharing their experiences with others, the Millers hope to not only inspire but also to inform. Millions of traumatic brain injury survivors face daily challenges. Many of them along with their loved ones do not know how to advocate for themselves as they encounter systems that are ill-equipped and people who are misinformed when it comes to dealing with TBI. If A Matter of Recovery helps just one person tackle the difficult tasks involved in making their own way, the Millers believe it will serve its purpose.
