Dr. Greenblatt brilliantly explains complex neurophysiologic information in a way that we can all understand. He does a wonderful job addressing both the psychological and physical treatment of binge eating disorder.
He addresses food addiction in a straightforward way with many useful suggestions to assist the reader in recovering from disordered eating.
Dr. Greenblatt states: “I’ve been treating binge eating disorder for over twenty years. Patients are too often disappointed by professionals who are focused on a singular approach to treatment and the management of this, often complex, disorder. In my twenty years of experience, treating thousands of patients, I believe an integrative approach looking at both biochemical vulnerabilities and psychological conflicts are the foundations to best utilize our current knowledge of nutrition and CBT.
This book explores the complex landscape of disordered eating and focuses on the biological tools including medications and supplements, now available to effectively treat and prevent binge eating disorder.
Dr. Greenblatt is the Chief Medical Officer at Walden Behavioral Care and is the Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Tufts University School of Medicine.
