Episode Summary

When we want to lose weight and we’re looking for some of the root causes of weight gain, it’s not uncommon to see binge-eating on the list. It’s understandable that it’s one thing that’s difficult to let go of because a lot of times, it’s tied to other aspects such as our emotions, our mentality, and our physiology.

In this episode of This Podcast Burns Fat, we’re talking to best-selling author and health coach, Ali Kerr, who has overcome her eating disorders and has since been helping others to do the same. Ali has written the Amazon best-selling book, The Binge Code, as well as the highest-rated bulimia recovery book, The Bulimia Help Method.
