Please READ BELOW FOR IMPORTANT COURSE CHANGES:
If you’ve heard about or participated in the 8-Week Course in the past, I want you to know that there will be significant changes to the course format, starting with the Feb. 2019 course.
As you may know, Master Coach Cookie Rosenblum and I ran this course together for a few years, and she had to take 2018 off of work in order to deal with a health condition. I’m so happy to report that Cookie is doing well, and is now back to work. However, she has decided to put all of her energy into her Freedom Group for emotional eating. Cookie and I loved the work we did together, but she will not be returning to coach the Brain over Binge course.
With that news, I did a lot of thinking about the course, and decided that the 8-Week Course will no longer have the same type of group setting as it did previously.
The group setting was helpful and successful, and I feel so fortunate that I’ve been able to work with so many amazing women and men. But, the group format also had challenges – for example, different time zones making it impossible for many members to attend the live group calls.
The 8-Week Course will now be a guided 8-weeks for each individual, instead of a group experience. This means that there will not be any live calls, and there will not be a Facebook group.
However, YOU WILL STILL BE ABLE TO SUBMIT YOUR QUESTIONS TO ME as you go through the course material, and I will answer them on specialized Q&A recordings.
One of the benefits of this change is that the price of the course is greatly reduced. It will be $225 instead of $399 as it was previously.

FAQ’s about the 8-Week Course
1.) How is the new version of the Brain over Binge 8-Week Course different than the Brain over Binge Independent Study Course?
The difference is twofold: First, there is a difference in how you get the lessons and resources. In the Independent Study Course, you get all of the lessons and resources right away, and you go through them at your own pace. In the 8-Week Course, you’ll get the lessons and resources on a highly structured timeline throughout the 8-weeks. You will also receive emails from Kathryn every weekday that will guide you, and ensure that you know exactly what to do in each lesson.
The second difference involves Q&A audios. The 8-Week Course includes 5 detailed Q&A audios with each of the 8 lessons (the Independent Study Course does not), and the 8-Week Course also gives you the ability to submit your own questions to Kathryn that she will answer on extensive Q&A recordings that will be released every other week of the course.
2.) Can you explain exactly what you’ll get during each week of the 8-Week course?
Each week will follow the same format. You’ll get 1 lesson per week, which will be released gradually on the course website, as follows:
Monday: A Welcome Audio (average of 5 minutes), an Audio Lesson (average of 30 minutes), and at least 2 worksheets will be added to the course website. You’ll also receive an instructional email explaining the week’s materials.
Tuesday: 1 or 2 coaching audios will be added to the course website. You’ll receive an email explaining how to use these coaching audios.
Wednesday: You will receive an email with tips and encouragement from Kathryn.
Thursday: 5 Q&A audios related to the lesson will be added to the website. You will receive an email notification and explanation of these audios.
Friday: On the 2nd, 4th, 6th, and 8th Friday of the course, you will receive an extensive Q&A recording from Kathryn answering all questions that were submitted by members and relate to the course material that’s been released so far. You can submit questions at any time through a private submission form on the website, and ALL submitted questions will be answered on Q&A recordings before the course ends. On the Fridays that you do not receive a Q&A audio, you will receive an email from Kathryn that includes recovery advice.
As you can see, you will receive resources and/or emails from Kathryn every weekday. You will not receive any new material on the weekends, but that’s a great time to catch up on any audios or worksheets from the week and reinforce what you’ve learned.
*The first 4 weeks of the course focus on learning to dismiss urges to binge, which is Recovery Goal 1 of the Brain over Binge approach, and the last 4 weeks of the course focus on learning to eat adequately, which is Recovery Goal 2 of the Brain over Binge approach.
3.) I’ve already purchased the Independent Study Course, but I want to do the 8-Week Course. Can I transfer or get a discount?
Yes! Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know, and you will receive a special purchase link. You will just pay the difference in price between the 8-Week Course and the Independent Study Course. The Independent Study course is $199 and the 8-Week Course is $225.
4.) Will you ever offer the old version of the 8-Week Course again, with the Facebook Group and live group calls?
Although nothing is completely certain in life, I do not plan to offer that version of the course in the future. The original course that I created with Cookie Rosenblum was very successful; however, based on life and work changes for both Cookie and me, we are unable to continue that version of the course. I hope this new version will allow the course to be more accessible and affordable to more people who need it, and eliminate some of the challenges of a group format. Everyone is highly individual, which is why I want to give you all of the resources you need to be successful, as well as the ability to ask me personalized questions that I will answer on the Q&A recordings. You can listen only to the Q&A recordings that apply to you, so that you can stay on your own path and recover in the most efficient way possible.
5.) Are the coaching audios in the 8-Week Course the same as the coaching audios in Recovery Goals Coach?
Yes, the 14 coaching audios in the 8-Week Course are the same as the 14 coaching audios in Recovery Goals Coach. Recovery Goals Coach allows the coaching audios to be delivered to you via email, text, and podcast app; but in the 8-Week Course, the coaching audios will simply be added to the course website, to go along with the lessons.
I offer the coaching audios separately in Recovery Goals Coach for those who feel they don’t need the whole course, but only some daily reinforcement and motivation from the coaching audios. If you have previously purchased Recovery Goals Coach, and you’ve now decided that you want the 8-Week Course, you can send an email to email@example.com in order to get a discount on the course, since you’re already paid for a portion of what’s included.
6). I was a member of a previous round of the 8-Week Course. Can I repeat the course again? Will I get a discount?
Absolutely! Some people like to reinforce what they’ve learned, and make sure they stay on a path to recovery. I welcome repeat course members, and you will receive a discount. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for a special discounted purchase link.
7). How long will I have access to the materials of the 8-Week Course?
You will have access to the private course website for 6 months from the start date of the course. This includes the 8 weeks of the course, plus an additional 4 months for you to download anything you want to save for the future (the course audios are in MP3 format and the worksheets are PDF’s).
8). Will I need to buy your book, the Brain over Binge Recovery Guide, from Amazon in order to complete the course successfully?
The book is not required to complete the course, and you can be successful in the course with or without the book. The course gives you everything you need in a guided way, but in each lesson of the course, there is “optional” reading from the Brain over Binge Recovery Guide, if you want to dive deeper.
9.) I’m worried this is not going to work for me, because I’ve been binge eating for many years.
It’s definitely possible to end the habit no matter how long you’ve been binge eating; but if you have a longstanding habit, it will likely take more practice and patience. When the habit is well-entrenched, it typically doesn’t just shut off like a switch, but instead it takes training and a willingness to be consistent and get right back on track after slips. There isn’t anything in the course that is specifically geared toward someone with a longstanding habit, but everything is geared toward someone who wants to learn, practice, and be consistent until they are free of binge eating. The people who are the most successful are the people who make a commitment to do complete every lesson, ask questions, and listen to the short coaching audios daily. I cannot guarantee that the course will end your habit, but giving yourself these valuable tools can help you be successful.
