I am truly extraordinarily impressed with the Bulimia Help Method. It is really impressive and very approachable - Susan Paxton, Past President of the Academy for Eating Disorders & Professor at La Trobe UniversityAbout the book You are t broken, weak or faulty because you binge on food. You are rmal and more importantly you can fully recover.
Let me explain... powerful binge cravings are a natural and rmal side effect of food restriction. If you have ever restricted your food intake in your past (e.g. a diet, a detox program, cutting out carbs, etc) then you may have triggered a primitive natural survival mechanism we call primal hunger. This leads to powerful binge urges, an insatiable appetite, food obsession, depression and anxiety. Your body thinks you are in the middle of a famine and it is doing everything it can to make you eat lots of food. By purging your food, you remain malurished and your body is stuck in primal hunger mode.
Keep in mind, this has thing to do with your upbringing, personality or emotional state. This may come as a surprise but studies show us that many of the symptoms that might have been thought to be specific to bulimia nervosa are actually the results of starvation (Pirke & Ploog, 1987). Chances are, you are perfectly rmal and are just experiencing the natural and very rmal side effects of a restrictive diet.
We don't ask you to analyze your painful past experiences or to examine any personality 'flaws' that may have lead to your bulimia as there is scientific evidence supporting the idea that resolving underlying psychological problems leads to recovery (Walsh & Cameron, 2005).
Instead we give you clear, practical steps to remove your primal hunger, stop bingeing and purging, relearn rmal eating and overcome bulimia for life.

Back in 2004 Nutritional Therapist Ali Kerr confessed to her husband Richard that she suffered from bulimia. Unfortunately inpatient treatment was too expensive and therapy proved ineffective. Out of desperation they began researching and questioning everything they knew about bulimia. From their research they pioneered a straight forward methodology that allowed Ali to make a full and rapid recovery. This knowledge became the foundation of the Bulimia Help Method recovery program. Since 2007 the Bulimia Help Method has help over 13,000 people around the world and is now recommended by experts, doctors and eating disorder charities world wide.
