Fairburn presents a scientifically based blueprint for breaking free of unhealthy eating patterns and finding new ways to deal with the emotional triggers that lead to binges. Packed with examples, step-by-step instructions, and straight-talking advice (for example, strict dieting does more harm than good), the book cuts through the stigma and shame surrounding binge eating.
