 Treat Binge Eating With Self-help Book and Counseling

Binge eating is a significant eating disorder where in the binge eaters are unable to hold back themselves and often use food as a way of coping with emotions like loneliness and stress. This practice is more than just the occasional over indulgence. Binge eating affects men and women equally. Almost 2-4% of North Americans are affected by it.

The University of Calgary has begun a new study to look into this disorder. They will also look for ways that will help binge eaters. Their main objective is to determine whether a self help book and telephonic counseling of a therapist per week will help binge eaters.

This project is being launched by Phil Masson to evaluate the self-help approach. He was written a self help book on this topic. The book is being tested in a U of C research trial which is recruiting participants for the study and will use the book in conjunction with 13 weeks of counseling with a therapist. Masson said, "Giving people some more skills to cope with and deal with the binge eating prevents the binge eating."
