Binge Eating Disorder Self Help Books

There is a self-help version of CBT-E available. This is presented step-by-step in the book Overcoming Binge Eating (Second Edition). It is often effective as a treatment for binge eating disorder and, to a lesser extent, bulimia nervosa, especially if there is some ongoing external support. A digital form of Overcoming Binge Eating, called Digital CBTe is currently under development.

Overcoming Binge Eating is designed to provide a readable and authoritative account of binge eating problems and how to overcome them. Part I presents the most current facts while Part II comprises a self-help program based on the latest version of the most effective treatment available. The programme can be used by anyone with a binge eating problem (including those with binge eating disorder and bulimia nervosa) so long as they are not substantially underweight.

The original version of Overcoming Binge Eating was published in 1995. Since then Part I has become established as a leading source of information on binge eating problems. Meanwhile the treatment program in Part II has been investigated in numerous clinical trials making it possibly the most extensively tested self-help program for any problem. It has repeatedly been found to be a potent source of help, either when used on its own or when used with external support (guided self-help). As a result, the program has become established as a leading treatment for binge eating problems. In recognition of this, Overcoming Binge Eating was awarded the Seal of Merit from the US Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies and in the UK National Health Service doctors can prescribe the book as if it were a form of medication.

As new knowledge is acquired from empirical research, it leads to advancements in treatment. As a result, the second edition is essentially a new book. It continues to provide a comprehensive and up to date account of what we know about binge eating problems, including those seen in anorexia nervosa, but it also provides much more information about dieting, body weight and body image.

Part II has been substantially modified in light of advances in treatment, particularly those made by CBT-E. CBT-E includes a new way of conceptualising eating problems, improved ways of regaining control over eating, a more sophisticated approach to the addressing of concerns about shape and weight, and much more emphasis on relapse prevention. These new developments have been incorporated into the self-help program. The self-help program in this new version of Overcoming Binge Eating is, in essence, a self-help version of CBT-E.

Hello Moira,I would recommend the books Overcoming Binge Eating and Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Eating Disorders by Christopher Fairburn. These books closely focus on bulimia nervosa and have demonstrated efficacy for this population.Hope that helps.

My granddaughter, Nicole MacIntyre, published a book, at age 15, describing what she was experiencing with her diagnose of anorexia nervosa. I was called, by her parents, to come to their home when she seemed to be out of control. Not until I read her book did I understand, and appreciate, what was going on within her. She named her book Misunderstood, so it would he hard to find as a eating disorder book. But I would strongly recommend this book for family members who deal with a member struggling with this disease. The 190 page paperback is available on Amazon for $10.99.

Additionally, it is very common for those who binge to experience a deep sense of shame and guilt surrounding their behaviors. Thus, it is crucial to practice self-compassion and to recognize that your desire to binge actually comes from a good place. Binging behaviors may have helped you thus far to cope with food insecurity and deprivation, past trauma, intense emotions, and relational conflicts.

I believe that disordered eating behaviors are a way that an individual is trying to meet their needs. Often people use these behaviors to cope with unpleasant emotions or difficult life circumstances. These behaviors may cause people to feel temporarily better in the short-term, but typically lead to greater pain and suffering in the long-term.

Thus, in working with clients with binge eating disorder my primary aim is to help them to develop self-compassion, let go of the diet-mentality, and to uncover the function of their binging behaviors. Then, we can work together to develop more life-affirming strategies.

This book, which was written by two therapists and specialists in treating individuals with binge eating disorder, is an incredible resource for those in recovery. It is engaging, easy to read, and offers lessons as well as brief exercises at the end of each chapter.

This book is a fantastic resource for those in recovery from binge eating disorder. It contains a variety of helpful tools and strategies from two amazing experts in the field of psychology and nutrition. Michelle May, MD, created the Am I Hungry? Mindful Eating Programs and Kari Anderson, DBH, LPC, is the President and Chief Clinical Director of The Binge Eating Treatment Center at Green Mountain at Fox Run.

This book is an easy to read introduction on a powerful clinical treatment called acceptance and commitment therapy. While this book is not directly related to binge-eating, it is incredibly helpful in terms of working on integrating aspects of mindfulness, changing your relationship to unhelpful thoughts, and then taking actions that are in alignment with your overarching values.

No one chooses to struggle with binge eating disorder. However, with the right resources and support you can fully recover. If you are struggling, it is so important that you reach out to a mental health professional. Reaching out for help when you are struggling is a sign of strength, not weakness.
