I’m Kathryn Hansen, and I recovered from bulimia 15 years ago. I am now dedicated to educating and empowering women and men who struggle with all forms of binge eating. My first book, Brain over Binge: Why I Was Bulimic, Why Conventional Therapy Didn’t Work, and How I Recovered for Good, became a goal of mine during my worst days of bulimia. I vowed that if I ever found a way to recover, I’d write about it in the hope of helping even one person struggling with the same horrible problem. Brain over Binge provides an alternative perspective and offers a simple and practical way to end the binge eating habit. I was overwhelmed by the response I received from readers of Brain over Binge—women and men who found complete recovery using the same brain-based concepts that helped me stop binge eating. I also received many requests for more information, which solidified my desire to write a second book on the topic. I completed that book, The Brain over Binge Recovery Guide, in January 2016. The Recovery Guide moves beyond sharing my own story to helping readers discover what works best in their unique situations. I also started a podcast (The Brain over Binge Podcast) around the same time, which has also been successful in helping people understand and use the power of their brain to end binge eating. For those who needed more personalized support, I led groups for several years and guided people through one-on-one coaching. Although I'm no longer providing those forms of support (in order to focus on my family...I'm a mom of 4), I put together all of the advice and encouragement I've given over the years into an affordable online format, which is called the Brain over Binge Course. This is a self-guided course that gives you a structured way to move toward freedom from binge eating, and answers your questions along the way. Throughout the 8 lessons of the course, I answer every question I've been asked in personal and group coaching, and there are 115 audios in total—adding up to 1,000 minutes or 17 hours of information, insights, and ideas. With my books, blog, podcast, and course, I aim to help women and men see that they are not diseased, broken, or flawed. My message departs from mainstream ideas that say eating disorders are the result of underlying emotional issues or psychological problems and require years of therapy (as well as a personal transformation) to fix. Bulimia and binge eating disorder are simply primitive brain responses to restrictive dieting and/or the repeated overconsumption of highly stimulating foods, and these problems are completely correctable. I teach people how to take back control from the primitive part of their brain, and use their higher cognitive power to chart a path to recovery in the most efficient way possible. My goal is to make recovery attainable for anyone who wants to live free of binge eating. You can learn more about me and my work at www.brainoverbinge.comRead more Read less
