This book has already offered tremendous help to more than 100,000 readers struggling with out-of-control eating. Christopher G. 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. The fully updated second edition incorporates important advances in eating disorders treatment. It features a new module on body image issues and enhanced strategies for achieving--and maintaining--a transformed relationship with food.
