I’m Kathryn Hansen, and I recovered from bulimia 17 years ago. I am now dedicated to educating and empowering individuals 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" (2011, 2022), 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 published that book, "The Brain over Binge Recovery Guide" in 2016. The Recovery Guide moves beyond sharing my own story to helping readers discover what works best in their unique situations. I also host the Brain over Binge podcast, which has also been successful in helping people understand and use the power of their brain to end binge eating. For those who need additional help, I've created an extensive and practical online course to guide you on your journey to recovery and answers your questions along the way. My team also offers 1:1 coaching and group coaching for those who want personalized support and accountability, and all of these resources are available on my website: BrainoverBinge.com. With my books, blog, podcast, course, and coaching, I aim to help binge eaters see that they are not diseased, broken, or flawed. 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. Learn more at Brainoverbinge.comRead more Read less
