Am I Hungry? Licensed Program to treat Binge Eating Disorder
New Program Successfully Treats Binge Eating Disorder with Mindful Eating
Binge Eating Disorder (BED), which affects 3% of the general population and up to 40% of those seeking weight loss, can be treated successfully with an intensive program using mindfulness-based strategies. The new program, called the Am I Hungry? Mindful Eating for Binge Eating, was created by Michelle May M.D and Kari Anderson, DBH, LPC, experts in mindful eating and eating disorder treatment (both from Arizona). In a recent study, participants in the program went from severe binge eating to a non-bingeing level in just ten weeks; preliminary analysis of the one-year follow-up data shows that the results were sustained for the majority of participants.

Binge Eating Disorder (BED) is the most common eating disorder, affecting an estimated 3.5% of women, 2% of men, and 30% to 40% of those seeking weight loss according to the Binge Eating Disorder Association. Despite its prevalence, many sufferers feel isolated and alone in their struggle with food. Those who experience the symptoms of BED understand the seriousness of the disorder, but feel powerless to stop it.
In a recent study, a new program, the Am I Hungry? Mindful Eating for Binge Eating, helped participants go from severe binge eating to a non-bingeing level in just ten weeks. Fortunately, with the right professional help, the disorder is treatable. “Mindfulness-based strategies aimed at self-regulating emotional and physical states have shown promise in the treatment of Binge Eating Disorder,” explains Michelle May, M.D., the founder of the Am I Hungry?® Mindful Eating Workshops and Facilitator Training Program.
