Description: An innovative and customizable 8-week plan to help you take control of your eating habits—once and for all.
Do you feel like your eating gets out of control? When it comes to food, does it feel like your life is controlled by cycles of deprivation and bingeing? Whether or not you’ve been formally diagnosed with a binge-eating disorder, you know that something needs to change. But like many disorders, what helps one person may not help another. That’s why The Binge Eating Prevention Workbook offers a wide range of evidence-based tools to help you take charge of your eating habits.
Using the eight-week protocol in this workbook, you’ll learn how to recognize your triggers, cope with difficult emotions, improve relationships, and make healthy food choices that will ultimately improve how you feel. You’ll learn to understand the underlying causes of your binge eating, how to recognize binge-inducing environmental factors, why dieting just doesn’t work, and mindfulness techniques to help you stay present when the urge to binge takes hold.
If you’re ready to break the shame-filled cycle of binge eating, this workbook has everything you need to get started today.
Book Review: “Marson and Keenan-Miller have put together a respectful, comprehensive, and holistic approach to treating binge eating disorder (BED) which clearly navigates the pitfalls of dieting. By combining science, wisdom, and a broad psychological knowledge base, they gently offer clear, step-by-step guidelines to a healthier and happier you. As a longtime expert in the field of eating disorders, I highly recommend this creative, practical, and user-friendly workbook.”

“Marson and Keenan-Miller offer a way of understanding binge eating disorder that removes the stigma and shame that this illness has previously carried with it. The book is inclusive of all BED sufferers, leaving the reader to feel understood and ready to take action. It holds the attention of the reader with well-thought-out, self-reflective exercises; expert interviews; and tips for making gradual change. As we move away from diet culture and toward a proper mental health lens for understanding binge eating, this book will serve as a manual for overcoming the allure of rigid eating plans and willpower-based interventions.”
