The Overcoming Mind-Hunger Program works to enhance recovery from binge eating disorder, bulimia or emotional eating issues by helping clients change their relationship with food. Overcoming Mind-Hunger addresses energy balance, management of true physical hunger and body acceptance. Once a normal healthy attitude about food emerges, more complex issues related to desire to change weight can be addressed.
