"Brain over Binge is different than other eating disorder books, which typically present binge eating and purging as symptoms of complex emotional and psychological problems. Kathryn Hansen, the author of Brain over Binge, disputes this mainstream idea and explains why traditional eating disorder therapy failed her and fails many. Kathryn explains how she came to understand her bulimia in a new way- as a function of her brain, and how she used the power of her own brain to recover - quickly and permanently. Sound theories and research support the ideas in this brave and refreshing new book, which holds promise for helping many who struggle with any form of binge eating." -- from author's website, http://www.brainoverbinge.com.

Little changes can make a big, big difference! In The Little Book of Big Change, psychologist Amy Johnson shows you how to rewire your brain and overcome your bad habits—once and for all. No matter what your bad habit is, you have the power to change it. Drawing on a powerful combination of neuroscience and spirituality, this book will show you that you are not your habits. Rather, your habits and addictions are the result of simple brain wiring that is easily reversed. By learning to stop bad habits at the source, you will take charge of your habits and addictions for good. Anything done repeatedly has the potential to form neural circuitry in the brain. In this light, habits and addictions are impersonal brain wiring problems that result from taking your habitual thinking as truth, and acting on that thinking in the form of doing your habit—over and over. This book offers a number of small changes you can make in your everyday life that will help you stop your bad habit in its tracks. If you want to understand the science behind your habit, make the decision to end it, and commit to real, lasting change, this book will help you to finally take charge of your life—once and for all.

This book is a much-requested follow-up to Brain over Binge (2011), in which the author shared how she used a basic understanding of neuroscientific principles to overcome bulimia. In this sequel and companion volume, with the help of fellow specialists and authors Amy Johnson, Ph.D., Katherine Thomson, Ph.D., and others, Kathryn Hansen lays out those same principles--and many more--in a self-help format that educates and empowers binge eaters to pursue recovery efficiently and effectively. Although recovery is not the same for everyone, this book posits that there are only two essential goals that must be met to end bulimia and binge eating disorder: (1) learning to dismiss urges to binge and (2) learning to eat adequately. As you work toward these goals with a streamlined focus, you will discover your own strength, develop your own insights, and put into practice ideas and behaviors that work uniquely and authentically for you. The Brain over Binge Recovery Guide is comprehensive in its length and scope, but utterly simple in its approach: You will read and use only what you need--continuing on in the book if you feel you need more information and guidance; putting it down and moving on with your life when you feel you're ready--so that you can start living binge-free as quickly and easily as possible.

YOU CAN “FLIP THE SWITCH” AND TURN OFF BULIMIA PERMANENTLY WITHOUT DRUGS OR THERAPY “Flipping the Switch: Freedom from Bulimia” provides you, the reader, with a better understanding of what your disorder is, how you acquired it, why it perpetuates, and what it will take for you to recover successfully. This book offers a comprehensive self-guided recovery program to help you “flip the switch” and turn off bulimia permanently. For the first time, the answers sought by anyone who has ever suffered from an eating disorder, are available in written form to be used in the privacy of their own home. While everyone’s journey of recovery is different, this book can help get you started on the right path to finally accomplish what you have been waiting so long to do- triumphantly succeed in breaking your addiction to food and reclaiming the life you’ve lost to bulimia. This book challenges the idea that one is “powerless” over addiction and provides hope to those who have tried traditional eating disorder therapy with no success. “Flipping the Switch” dissects the process of how addiction rewires the brain. Empowered with this information you will be able to go from self-destruction to self-reconstruction upon completion of this book. The author wrote this book after her personal 22 year struggle with bulimia finally came to an end. Frustrated with traditional recovery programs, the author felt compelled to devise her own self-reconstruction method. Having gone through the recovery process herself, she has keen insight of the obstacles one faces as a food addict and understands how difficult becoming abstinence can be. Armed with the knowledge and strategies presented here, you will understand what is needed to break the cycle of addiction and be prepared to face bulimia head on. The step-by-step recovery plan and transitional diet offered here helps you make the transition from binge eating to "normal" eating in a non-threatening manner.

Overeating and obesity are on the rise. Despite public health warnings, availability of diet books and programs, and the stigma associated with obesity, many people find it difficult to achieve and maintain a healthy body weight. While there are many books on the topic of caloric or need-based eating, obesity and overeating can also result from eating that is not driven by hunger. Recent research found that excess food intake is largely driven by the palatability of food and the pleasure derived from eating. Hedonic Eating: How the Pleasure of Food Affects Our Brains and Behavior discusses the pleasurable aspects of food intake that may cause and perpetuate overconsumption. Broad in its scope, this book examines the various behavioral, biological, and social rewards of food. The comprehensive chapters cover topics ranging from the neurochemistry of food reward to the hotly debated concept of 'food addiction,' while providing relevant and up-to-date information from the current body of scientific literature regarding food reward.

In seinem bahnbrechenden neuen Buch präsentiert Michael Neill eine radikal neue Sichtweise, wie das Leben funktioniert, und stellt damit die traditionelle Psychologie auf den Kopf.

Versteht man diese Prinzipien, erkennt man die tiefere Intelligenz, die hinter dem Leben steckt, hat Zugang zu natürlicher Weisheit und Führung und kann grenzenlose Kreativität freisetzen. Dadurch lässt sich Stress reduzieren, größere Ruhe finden und das Gefühl der Verbundenheit zum Leben wiederentdecken.
