Overcome your compulsive eating and lose weight permanently. Improve your physical and mental health, without dieting again. Ever. Enjoy a slimmer, healthier you without the stress. Our compulsive overeating course walks you through the solution to the underlying problem. This self-paced course requires no textbook or instructor.
When you can't accurately judge when you've had enough to eat, or what a sensible portion size is even before you eat, you may have a compulsive overeating condition. If your body is too fat (people inaccurately say "overweight," when what they mean is they have too much additional body fat), then consider this. You did not get that way overnight.
You got that way one bite or spoonful at a time. In other words, you consistently overate. And you did this for an extended time. That means you are suffering from a learned behavior. You can unlearn this behavior, and this course will take you through the steps of doing exactly that. That learned behavior, by the way, is an obsessive behavior.
In countries where excessive body fat is normal (e.g., the USA), people are usually in denial. One self-proclaimed life extension expert wrote a book detailing his philosophy. He gave his body fat percentage and called that "ideal," when in fact it was nearly double what is healthy in an adult male.
If you're considering this course, you have already broken the chains of delusion to acknowledge that you have a problem. And you are doing something about it. This says something about you, and what you should be hearing about now is very positive.
So now you need to understand what is driving that compulsive eating. Basically, it's a maladaptive, self-defeating, self-degrading obsessive behavior. The good news is you can change all that. In so doing, you will change more than the reading on a scale. Let's take a moment to see why....
This pattern of overeating is an obsessive behavior. Obviously, relationships suffer when a person is obsessive about anything. But it's not just the outward manifestations of this particular obsession that cause problems for you. Because the physical manifestation arises from an inner emotional problem, your compulsion exerts itself in subtle (and not so subtle) ways in your relationships.
This undermines marriages, friendships, and careers in a multitude of ways. None of which you would suffer, if you overcame this compulsion.
Yet, you keep doing it. Why? This course will show you how to discover the answer. Your compulsion is a response, and if you understand how to uncover what's driving that response you can cure the compulsion.
You can get at the root of your overeating problem--and solve it permanently.
Estimated completion time for the Behavior: Overcoming Compulsive Eating course: 15 one-hour sessions.

You need to overcome the consequences of this self-defeating behavior. This Behavior: Overcoming Compulsive Eating will help you do exactly that.
What sort of consequences are we talking about? They may include:
People don't like you. If you feel isolated or disrespected, your self-defeating behavior is probably why--and you can change that.
You don't like yourself, because of your self-defeating behavior.
Your defense mechanism is to engage in your self-defeating behavior. This sets up a self-sustaining vicious cycle, in which you are currently trapped (this course teaches you how to use an appropriate response and break the cycle).
The dynamic of many relationships with others is that of a contest rather than one of cooperation. This means others fight you, one way or another.
Your response of your self-defeating behavior merely fuels this, creating a self-sustaining vicious cycle.
People often avoid any real discussion with you (on specific topics that trigger your self-defeating behavior), because they already know how it will go.
Others may give in to avoid triggering your self-defeating behavior, but later they find ways to disagree silently and/or undermine you (the are exhibiting passive-aggressive behavior, which is self-defeating for them).
You may have the appearance of "winning" or getting your way, but you actually lose it in terms of eventual outcome.
People who interact with you feel almost obligated to work against you. And they may not even realize it consciously. Your self-defeating behavior has tapped a primal self-defense mechanism in them.
Folks who could volunteer to help you, don't.
Your self-defeating behavior turns them off or you send involuntarily negative signals because you are relying on your ineffective self-defeating behavior instead of using effective coping skills. This course will show you how to use those skills.
How It Works
This Behavior: Overcoming Compulsive Eating course follows the same protocol used in short-term professional psychotherapy. The notable exception is this course is self-treatment. Whereas you could expect 4 or 5 one-hour sessions with a psychotherapist, the self-treatment approach will require more self-initiative. But you won't be paying $200 per hour for five hours this way, either.
As with any form of psychotherapy, your journey along the healing path may not end with this course. However, note these two facts about this kind of treatment:
The success rate is very high for people who make an honest effort to work through the therapy.
The therapy lays the groundwork for a stronger method of treatment, if needed.
This Behavior: Overcoming Compulsive Eating course is one of a series developed by Dr. Jay Prince, licensed psychotherapist. Dr. Prince passed away in 2001. A rapid cancer claimed him well before old age. During his lifetime, Dr. Prince treated many patients who needed to overcome a problem through psychotherapy. Dr. Prince also had several corporate clients, who came to him for solving dysfunctional situations within their companies.
Dr. Prince changed the lives of many of our customers, giving them new direction and new hope. In his private practice, Dr. Prince helped individuals overcome problems that kept them from leading the fulfilling lives they deserved. He also consulted to corporations, helping them to develop more humane, rewarding, and productive workplaces.
Working with Dr. Prince was a pleasure, knowing him was an honor. He wanted his courses priced so the average person could easily buy one and begin the journey to recovery.
The series of behavior courses is licensed exclusively to Mindconnection, LLC. His portion of the proceeds now go to his widow and children.
Going this route--the self-treatment via Dr. Prince's course--will save you money for three reasons:
You pay a one-time fee for the Behavior: Overcoming Compulsive Eating course, rather than $200 an hour for 4 to 6 hours
If this therapy solves your problem, that's your total cost.
If short-term therapy can't solve your problem, you have determined that without spending several hundred dollars..
It's a good course I guess, if you want to take the time to work through the therapy it recommends. I took it partway and have made some improvement.
The pounds came off and didn't come back, 6.19.2011
Reviewer: Amber Jones (Columbus, OH)
Every spring, I've gone through the same ritual--dieting to lose the pounds I gained since fall. This year was different. I was finally able to control my eating without going on a diet and making everyone around me miserable. Now it's summer and I look great though I didn't do any dieting to get there. This course showed me how to stop my compulsive eating. I'm much happier now.
I was surprised not to find a diet plan in this course. Amazingly, it works without one. I find myself not snacking all day long and I'm able to stop eating each meal rather than going back for helpings until I'm so full I can hardly walk. That's what I used to do, just eat, eat, eat. No matter what diet I tried or program I went on, it seemed like the eating would continue until the morale improved.
This compulsive eating course helped me get to the actual cause of the problem. After 6 months of completing it, I am still eating sensibly. I didn't go on a diet, but also found I no longer crave high calorie foods. So my body fat has gone from 68% to 44% in that time. I had started out counting the lost pounds, but after curing my eating compulsion I stopped fearing exercise so now I'm putting on muscle too.
My doctor is just amazed at the difference. My blood pressure is easier to control; we keep adjusting my dose down. Cholesterol also dropping.
It seems like I will have to reach a "floor" at some point, and then will need a diet to continue with this progress. If this course had such a diet then it would be perfect. It did have some great references, which I have slowly been looking into.
Beats diets and diet pills, 9.22.2010
Reviewer: Regina Fontinelli (Philadelphia, PA)
I've tried half a dozen diets, plus creams, pills, potions, and exercises.
What was keeping me fat was I could not control how often or how much I ate. And I found myself arranging social events to be around other people with the same problem, instead of being around the people who didn't have this problem.
This course was really hard for me to work through. I almost gave up, but something kept me going. Maybe hope.
As things turned out, I was able to get a grip on what was driving me to eat compulsively and make some positive changes. It has not been easy, but as the days go by I am finding myself more in control of things, eating appropriately, and feeling better about my body image and myself in general.
