This master class has been designed to help you understand and work with these problems. It is suitable for all professionals and lay people who work with the overweight.
“Up to half of all adults who are overweight suffer from problems with binge eating, a condition which will render behavioural treatments for obesity ineffective”
This Masterclass will be useful if you work in any domain where weight management is a focus. Overweight people who binge eat will be unable to stick to a diet for any length of time and will be unable to maintain any weight they have lost – no matter how pleased they are with their progress. Addressing binge eating is thus essential for the chance of any weight loss initiative to succeed.

- How to distinguish binge eating from overeating
- What it implies for the client
