It seemed to focus a great deal on ways that people suffering from obesity can lose weight and learn to love exercise, to understand that BED is genetically linked, and recommendations for proper and appropriate nutrition as well as different kinds of useful therapy. It's informative. But it's definitely not a guide on how to stop binge eating. I think it also discounts the large portion of people with BED who are also compulsive exercise addicts or who are thin or normal weight. There are many, many people who suffer from binge eating disorder who are not obese at all, yet this book tends to focus on those who are obese, so only a subset of binge eaters are represented here. The other thing about people with BED or any eating disorder really, is that many are experts on diet and nutrition, from all the years of obsessing about weight and body. This book seems to be written for those who are new to diet and exercise. If you are obese and are afraid of exercise and don't know anything about eating healthy, I think that this book will be helpful for you. However, if you're more average size and know the ins and outs of exercise and nutrition and are looking for more of a book that addresses the emotional aspects of binge eating this is probably not your book.
While I did not consider myself a binge eater (still don't) there are many eating traits that resonate.
