Never Binge Again: Reprogram Yourself to Think Like a Permanently Thin Person
If you struggle with binge eating, emotional eating, stress eating, or if you repeatedly manage to lose weight only to gain it all back, you may be approaching things with the wrong mindset.
Most contemporary thought on overeating and bingeing focuses on healing and self-love. But people who've overcome food addiction and weight issues often report it was more like ca...more

I've only read a few self-help books, on various topics, but I always find that they basically state the obvious, and tell you what you (kind of) already know. And yet, quite a lot of the time, that's what you need - you just need someone to say it, maybe in a slightly different way to how you've thought of it be ...more
That said this book is repetitive and not all that well written. If you struggle with over eating then this is worth reading.

At one point, the author says, "You don't have to do what I say, it's ultimately up to YOU to change."
Duh. I think I'll take that advice, over any other in this waste of ...more
As someone who has struggled most of their adult life with binge eating/depression/anxiety, I got this on a personal level. I've heard it said that half the battle is changing your mindset, and this book helped me to begin that process. By taking the gratification feeling out of binge eatin ...more

Maybe he was able to make it free because he didn't fork out for an editor.
I could never recommend a book that uses negative self talk as a tool to treat something that can be part of an eating disorder! But I guess it could be effective for some people who are into that.
I have struggled for 20 years with Yo-Yo Dieting, losing and gaining back the same 10 pounds. This book kills the destructive self talk and rationalizations that kept me repeating this fruitless pattern. I read the book in 2 days with the help of the audio format. Immediately I am seeing positive results and feeling joyful.
I am very thankful to the writer not only he made it available and free for everyone, but he also provides all the worksheet and audio you need to take the control over your bad habit, also completely free.
A really cool book that if you take seriously it can help you overcome bingle eating.
In case you wonder I do not agree with the whole metaph ...more
The concept of this book is great. The execution of it was not the best. The voice was annoying to say the least.
Just never binge again. That's it. Got it? Get it? Good.

But what it says is that actually you don't need to identify with those destructive thoughts, because they don't represent who you are and your life goals. You can see them as what they are (read: Pig Squeal) and let go, instead of getting caught up in them.
This book had me say "I' ...more
I really enjoyed this reading. I've never had actual problems with food binge, but this little book not only make you think twice about your food habits but your general habits as well. You realize that we also have other kinds of Pigs living inside us. A good ebook to learn how to control mind and emotions, not just related to food but to other life aspects too.
Did I learn anything from this book?
Well some tips and tricks proved useful and hopefully will remain so in the long run, I also had a few laughs during this read, but his writing style is really off putting to me at times because it treats one as a child. A lot. And many of his methods are just unreliable and you can easily ignore them.
Such a simple concept revealed here it’s almost comical. I feel like...duh! I should inherently know this stuff (but obviously not, seeing as how I felt the need to read the book in the first place). Now to apply the ideas. There was some solid advice given here, much of which I’ve taken to heart and will employ.
To look at me you may not think/know I struggle on the daily with food addiction/binging. I’m committing to caging my squealing pig now.
If you have ever struggled with disordered eating or an eating disorder, especially Bulimia nervosa it binge eating disorder, DO NOT READ THIS BOOK!! This book is a quick way to go deeper into disordered eating and mindset. I highly encourage the book “intuitive eating” and also the use of a HAES dietician, but this book should be avoided at all costs if you are seeking help in eating disorder recovery or just want to stop yo yo dieting!
Isn’t for everyone. But, it was PERFECT for me. In today’s society we’re supposed to talk nice to ourselves, accept everything and every body image out there. I, am different. My family can attest to this. When I’m on a strict food/exercise plan I literally tell my kids and husband to get rude with me if I deviate off my goals. This book was speaking my language. Calling my cravings and binges my “inner pig” is exactly how I would talk.
