Life After Emotional & Binge Eating

My CNN Binge Eating Interview

It has been quite a week for interviews!  Here’s the latest. Elizabeth Cohen, Senior Medical Correspondent for CNN, included me in her Empowered Patient Column. The story is about binge eating, sparked by a comment Oprah Winfrey made when she appeared on Piers Morgan’s new show.Here’s the article, Binge Eating: Numbing sadness with food


Ellen Shuman is a Life Coach who specializes in emotional and binge eating issues. She is the founder of A Weigh Out & Acoria Eating Disorder Treatment, Vice President of the Binge Eating Disorder Association (BEDA), and Co-Chair of the Academy for Eating Disorders Special Interest Group on “Health at Every Size”, ellen@aweighout.com


  1. Congratulations on being interviewed for the CNN article Ellen. I know you have helped a lot of people suffering from binge eating over the years and hope this article serves to increase awareness of this disorder.

    Weigh to go Ellen!!!!!!!So proud of you!

  6. Ellen Shuman, Emotional Eating Coach; A Weigh Out says

    Thanks, Frieda! Funny, the title was changed. The day the column was posted, it was called “Binge Eating: Numbing sadness with food”. Then it was changed to “”Don’t Eat Like Oprah”, which I thought distasteful…I assume to attract more readers.
