In The Binge Code, UK nutritional therapist and best-selling author of The Bulimia Help Method Alison Kerr will show you how to end your struggle with binge eating, food cravings, and yo-yo diets and shed excess weight - and never put it back on!

"You're not crazy, weak, or lacking willpower. And it's not your fault! The Binge Code digs into the science to show you what's keeping you out of control around food and provides an effective, easy-to-follow action plan to help you look, feel, and live your best." - Cameron Heathers, best-selling author and Life30 co-founder

There's a new way to end binge eating, and few of us have ever heard of it.

Do you feel trapped in a continual cycle of overeating, food cravings, and food obsession? Do you struggle to control your weight with diet after diet? Does one donut frequently turn into a full-blown binge?

If so, you may be stuck in "the binge trap". Your body, mind, and emotions have become trapped in a continual cycle of bingeing on food. Until you break free, the desire to binge will always remain. It never goes away.

The Binge Code is a bold new audiobook based on hard science and over 10 years of helping people end their binge eating issues and lose excess weight.

In this audiobook, Alison Kerr shows you exactly, step by step, how to unlock your mind, body, and emotions from the binge trap. Using her breakthrough approach, you can overcome compulsive eating, food cravings, and weight fluctuations and learn to live life to the fullest.

Freedom from food issues - and a happier, more fulfilling life - is within reach. You just need to follow the code.

Great read for anyone who struggles with guilt, food, and self-love.

This book is helped me deal with so many guilt trips and to make peace no only with my drastic back and forth eating behaviors, but also with myself.
Also made helped me set up a pre-menstrual system to stay on the lookout when my “monthly visitor” was approaching to be prepared since mood swings and more cravings due to hormonal changes are coming around the same time every month. Also helped to understand why my “orthorexic” (all clean, gluten free, etc. etc.may have been causing the binges). Also that skip breakfast was the sure way to get ravenous later on in the day; but most importantly that l had hope and do do you. Aldo have given me the tools to understand many things about some of my clients and help them with some of their issues. Thank you Ali l am forever grateful!! :)

Narrator

I have just started this book and the narrator makes me want to binge... I feel like she's talking at me and repeating the same words, all of it is making me anxious. Im going to do my best to finish this book.

Good book but strange reader

The reader for this book over exaggerated every single word. She tried to sound like every single word had meaning. The first few chapters were rough; HOWEVER! She did calm down later in the book and it was easier to pay attention to the information presented in the book.

Eye Opening

I just recently realized I am a binge eater. I looked for a book that would help me understand my problem and a way to deal with it. A friend suggested I read this book. Within the first 10 minutes I was shocked and realized I have been a binge eater my whole life! I couldn't read this book fast enough. I had to download Audible to listen every chance I got. With what I have read now I have gotten control of my binge eating and I am very aware of my relationship with food. Thank you so much for writing this!!

Some good advice

This book has some good advice, and I like that it was written by someone who actually struggled with binge eating. Nothing annoys me more than to have some skinny know it all putting out a weight help book when they have no clue the struggle people face.

But, this book contains a LOT of pseudoscientific piffle. At one point she references a chakra, seriously. Whatever next? The last hour is a bunch of new agey sounding hypnosis kind of stuff. I was honestly embarrassed to hear it.

Don't get me wrong. If you're still using negative self talk, the "I love myself" suggestion is probably useful. I overcame that a few years ago, so it seemed like an exercise in narcissism. Negative self talk is a huge problem, so the author should be congratulated for trying to address it.

On balance I'd say this book is useful to give some useful tips and some insight into binge eating and disordered eating. I just felt a little embarrassed that the author was so eager to invoke science where it supports her opinion, but she doesn't hesitate to take a left turn into new age crazy town to support other ideas. The new agey hypnosis at the end was just plain loony and embarrassing. I had this audiobook playing on a Bluetooth speaker while I worked on the remodel of our new home. I was alone in the house, but still ran to switch it off when that nonsense started to play. This new agey stuff also reinforced the thought I had that the author is mistaken in her beliefs about the nature of the mind. She treats the brain as though it's something separate from the self. I realize this misapprehension probably comes from her new agey idea that there's something other than the brain generating consciousness. In fact, the brain is consciousness. This is a verifiable scientific fact.

Just Okay

It has a lot of good advice and information, but nothing groundbreaking. The narrator’s voice was not my style- I didn’t totally enjoy her tone or inflections.

A kind and nurturing way of beating binge eating behaviours

Breaks a realistic method down into manageable steps. It all feels achievable and I love the hypnotherapy style sessions at the end. I feel at last , that this is something I can conquer .

very good

As a 50+ person I have been on a few diets. Over the years but I do think this book was worth purchasing for the different advice they gave.

Caring, practical, common sense and life changing

Thank you so much for writing this book. I was worried it would be gimmicky or might make me worse if I thought too about it. But it’s not like that at all, it’s practical, gives many tools to deal with binge eating and written in a caring understanding way. I’m already seeing improvements as I put it into practice. I feel hope!

Keto & intermittent Fasting

Though the overall concept is of binge and types of traps. It goes against the recent studies on intermittent fasting. It does not recommend fasting, it recommends 4- 6 meals a day and Breakfast after waking up!

However, we are all different and binge eating is normally apparent due to either emotional or stress.

I’m a Keto and intermittent and my ‘Binge’ has been due to other reasons.

Great book for those who do not follow intermittent fasting..

Great to put your mind at ease

This book has helped give me some good tips to control my eating. even if its not a binge but also just over all.

The voice is a bit tedious however worth pushing through it.
