Whether they describe their struggle as “bingeing,” “compulsive eating,” “emotional eating,” or “food addiction,” they all talk about shame and secrecy. They often say, “I thought I was the only one who did this.”
That’s why when Am I Hungry?® Facilitator Kari Anderson DBH LPC, an eating disorder therapist with over 20 years of experience, asked me to collaborate with her to develop an Am I Hungry? Mindful Eating Program specifically for binge eating and conduct research for her doctorate, I jumped at the chance.
The results have been nothing short of inspiring. I am still humbled and amazed by the power of mindful eating to heal a painful relationship with food. People who have been trapped in a binge eating cycle for years–or even decades–are finally finding freedom.
