Stop Binge Eating
and Start Dreaming Again

Imagine your relief if emotional or binge eating were no longer a problem.

Would freedom from food obsession mean you could stop living life on the sidelines?

If you’re struggling with how to stop binge eating or emotional eating, simple advice like “take a walk around the block” just doesn’t cut it!

What you need to feel better are “Emotional Handrails”; new self-soothing emotional habits (brain-based tools) you can lean on instead. Want to learn more?

With the right support, you can do this!

Personally, I know that desperate feeling…that voice in your head that sometimes whispers and sometimes screams that you have no choice but to use food to “numb out”. In that moment, you feel driven to distract from any thought, feeling, or responsibility you’d rather avoid.

Professionally, I’ve worked in this field for 30 years, as a researcher, director of a Binge Eating Disorder Treatment Center, as a past President of the Binge Eating Disorder Association; BEDA (merged with NEDA). But my favorite role of all has been “Emotional Eating Recovery Coach” (since 1997).

When it comes to helping people stop binge eating and compulsive overeating, I bring a unique depth of understanding, empathy, proven and cutting edge tools to those I Coach. I can show you, once and for all, how to find your hope again.

What My Clients Are Saying

Thanks so much Ellen. I have learned a lot from you and feel you are one of the few people (maybe the only one?) who really understands what’s going on with Binge Eating. Or more importantly, what’s going on with all the emotional things lurking beneath the surface driving it.*

Dare I say you’ve developed a paradigm shift with A Weigh Out? Yes! The toolkit you provided is like nothing else I’ve ever been given in my 40-year struggles with body image, weight, and food. The tools truly are ‘emotional handrails’ that I use every day. And they work. Perhaps the greatest thing you shared with me is that the big bad FOOD demon I’ve been so overwhelmed by is just ‘a thought’; a food thought. It’s mine, I created it, and I can change it. Simple, yet so powerful. Thank you, Ellen for doing this work and giving me so much.*
My experience with Ellen Shuman and A Weigh Out has been nothing less than phenomenal. For years, I was on a quest for freedom from binge eating and all the problems that come with it. I read books, participated in coaching sessions, watched online videos, etc., with no success. I seriously thought that I should resign myself to accept a life of constant struggle with food, weight, and body image. Something inside me still wanted to fight that dragon, and I knew there had to be a better way to live. I reluctantly searched online, yet again, and I thank God that I did because I found A Weigh Out and Ellen Shuman. The positive impact on my life is immeasurable. I could write for days about the freedom I have found, but I will simply say: trust this process. It truly is A Weigh Out.*

If you would like to hear more about the experiences of others who worked with me to stop binge eating…

Your best life becomes possible when you can
stop binge eating, obsessing about food, weight
and body dissatisfaction

When you have “Emotional Handrails”, healthier ways to manage and shift uncomfortable thoughts and feelings, food loses its power over you and you get to start dreaming again.
It is so much easier to learn how to stop emotional eating and binge eating when you have a skilled partner to guide you. Consider taking just one step toward creating a more fulfilling and joyful life.
“I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE talking to you every week and have grown so much as a result of all you have taught me. I had no idea when we first began talking about my emotional eating, that it would lead to coaching in so many areas of my life. You have given me so many skills. My family and I have benefited so greatly from your counsel. You are a wonderful woman, a huge inspiration, and perfect at what you do.”
