Am I Hungry? Mindful Eating for Binge Eating Participant,2016
Why this program?
Over the years, as a therapist, I have been searching for a framework to help my clients struggling with emotional or binge eating or bulimia nervosa.
This year I stumbled across ME-BE and was skeptical at first however the results with my clients have been very promising.
The program is very well researched, thorough and structured. It integrates dialectical behavior therapy which in my experience is one of the most effective treatments for problems that involve emotional regulation issues. It also skillfully integrates CBT and mindfulness.
The workshops are experiential (i.e. you learn through doing) interactive, fun and engaging. Participants are not expected to self disclose.
For those seriously committed to recovering the individual sessions are essential. These sessions are also highly structured and will help you apply what you learn in the workshops to your own story and life.
I am very excited to be sharing MB-BE with you and recognize that it’s a big step. I look forward to supporting you on your journey and believe that you will find the program is about allot more than food.
The Mindful Eating for Binge Eating Program has been validated and tested on adult women with Binge Eating Disorder. They went from severe binge eating to a non-bingeing level on the Binge Eating Scale during the program.
A year later participants were still measuring on the non binge scale. The program has also been shown to be effective for people who don’t necessarily binge or are not overweight but is suitable for anyone that eats emotionally or compulsively or has a difficult relationship with food.
