Binge Eating Disorder (BED) is the most common eating disorder and has a destructive effect on the lives of people who struggle. If you are a therapist or work with an eating disorder treatment team, you can help!
The Am I Hungry?® Mindful Eating for Binge Eating Program (ME-BE) is a 10-week weight-neutral* outpatient treatment program consisting of psycho-education and group or individual therapy using modified DBT, MBSR, and motivational strategies based on Self-Determination Theory. Therapeutic techniques engage mindfulness-based strategies to target affect regulation, counteract dissociation from emotional awareness, and slow the impulsive nature of binge eating.
This clinically valid treatment program utilizes the structure of the Am I Hungry? Mindful Eating Cycle, making it simple to learn and implement so your program can be up and running within months! We have done all of the difficult and time-consuming work of developing and testing the program and materials so you can focus on what you do best: Guiding your clients to full recovery.
Results from our one-year study:
- Participants went from a range of severe binge eating to a non-bingeing level on the Binge Eating Scale (BES) after 10 weeks. Other significant improvements were found in levels of mindfulness, depression, anxiety, and dietary choices.
- 68% of the participants participated in the one-year follow up. They not only maintained, but improved their scores on the BES (which measures eating attitudes and behaviors) and other measures.*
* An important clinical note for those of you treating BED: The few participants who reported restrictive dieting in the year following the program showed a rebound in BES scores and less significant changes in all other measures. Another reminder that dieting is counterproductive in BED!
