B r a i n - b a s e d Tr e a t m e n t For Binge Eating Nicole Siegfried, PhD, CEDS Chief Clinical Officer Tammy Beasley, RDN, CEDRD, CSSD Vice President of Clinical Nutrition Services The WAR Within Objectives Illustrate how the brain is activated during urges to binge. Understand the basic concepts of neuroplasticity

to create new neural pathways in the brain. Define and illustrate three keys points of reconnection to hunger and fullness Describe practical methods for both dietitians and therapists to unstick the repetitive behaviors and facilitate brain rewiring. The Mind and the Brain Brain: the physical organ that responds to our environment through chemical and electrical impulses. Mind: an embodied and relational process that regulates the flow of energy and information Dan Siegel Mind: the representation of your true self with the ability to focus attention

Evidence suggests that dopamine reward responses from acute food pleasure adjust over time; more required for same effect Evidence suggests brain reward circuitry is more active with sugarbased foods in hungry subjects vs. satiated subjects Schag et al., 2013; Kessler et al., 2016; Davis, 2015 The Binge Teaches the Brain That

The automated response to binge foods is physiologically learned and not simply failed willpower Periods of restriction as punishment for a binge can lower blood sugar levels and subsequently increase the desire for sugary-based binge foods in a hungry state. Schag et al., 2013; Kessler et al., 2016; Davis, 2015 Cortisol Feeds the

Problem Stress triggers cortisol release Triggers release of more insulin which can cravings Decreases storage of glucose from blood to liver

Cortisol looks for stored glucose to feed stress Increases release of glucose from liver to blood Consequences of the binge/dieting cycle Binge eating episodes increase exponentially with the frequency of

dieting or restriction. More cortisol is produced by the stress response from dieting itself. Holmes et al. 2014; Tomiyama et al. 2010. The single most pervasive intersection between the distorted thoughts and the binge itself is SHAME. The brain

MEAL Fuel Balance TIMING Repetition Research on Meal Timing Adjusted mealtimes reset body clock Brain is the clock for sleep/ body temperature

Liver is clock for food metabolism Study: After 2 days of adjusted mealtimes, livers rhythm shifted 10 hours. Wehrens, SMT, et al. Current Biology. 2017. Research on Meal Timing Meal timing exerts a variable influence over human physiological rhythms, with notable changes occurring in aspects of glucose homeostasis.

Translation? A 5-hour delay between meals changed glucose balance but did NOT influence insulin balance the same way Reduced glucose without subsequent reduction in insulin creates insulin-produced hypoglycemia increasing sugar cravings Bottom line: Meal timing matters Flood Gate Analogy Flood Gate: Consistent meal/snack times

and judgment around food Research on Balance & Variety Better outcomes w/ increase in energy dense foods Fats Complex carbohydrates Proteins* Schebendach et al., JADA 2011 Decreased desire to binge or overeat

Instead of I am huge! Or I must eat! Or I am sad!... I am having the thought I am having the urge I am having the feeling (Schwartz, 2016)

This is my brain trying to follow its well-worn path (Schwartz, 2016) Rewiring the Brain Step 3: REFOCUS: The power of attention Shift the gears yourself I am experiencing an automatic urge related to my eating disorder. I need to do another behavior. Opposite action 15 minute rule (Linehan, 1993; Schwartz, 2016)

Rewiring the Brain Step 4: REVALUE: The power of future Wise advocate Creating a life worth living the thought of being fat is coming and going and Im going to have a life anyway people live their lives in spite of their chronic pain, loss and other distressing experiences and I am right now going to live despite my thoughts.. they are not me.. and I am learning to tune them out and it takes time.
