Freedom from Emotional Eating, Food & Weight Obsession

Watch Free Educational Film About Eating Disorders

I wanted to tell everyone about a free film. It’s produced by NORMAL; a national non-profit that educates about eating disorders (including binge eating disorder). The Film is called “ED 101”.  (My Binge Eating Disorder Association colleague, BEDA Founder and CEO Chevese Turner, is one of the experts interviewed.)  For those of you who are in a position to educate others, it also comes with a full curriculum and support materials.

This 35-minute film illustrates the four types of eating disorders through expert interviews, personal family stories, and rock musical footage sung by Broadway and American Idol performers.

The film is sponsored by Timberline Knolls Residential Treatment Center, and distributed through a collaboration of 15 non-profits — All details are available at

I have worked in the Wellness Field for 30 years. I created an Emotional Eating & Binge Eating Disorder Recovery Program way before most people knew BED was an eating disorder, NOT a “willpower” issue. Personally, I suffered for years before finding answers and the help I needed and deserved! I became a Coach in 1997 to help others who were still suffering as I had. I love being a Coach!
