You’re Not Alone

Binge Eating Disorder is 3x more common as HIV, schizophrenia and breast cancer combined.

You’re Not Alone

Our culture’s obsession with weight loss, thinness, and external beauty have left many empty inside.

You’re Not Alone

I know it’s embarrassing. Overeating treatments are available if you have the courage.

You’re Not Alone

You were lied to and it’s not your fault you couldn’t lose weight, stick to a diet, or be pencil thin. But now is the time to face your struggles.

Millions of hardworking folks are struggling with overeating, if you’re anything like them …

  • You find yourself waking up hating your body and puffy face from overeating and bingeing last night.

  • You’ve gone to the moon and back with Overeater’s Anonymous, various diets, doctors, therapies and feels like you have only yourself left to blame.

  • Deep down you feel that you are broken and that there’s just something truly wrong with your body and who you are.

  • You can’t stop thinking about food and weight even though this only makes things worse and blocks you from your dreams and relationships.

  • You’re worried about your health and know tons of information about healthy eating, but you still can’t stop self-sabotaging and keep gaining weight.

  • You’ve tried various attempts at ‘eating when hungry stop when full’, or Intuitive Eating but you just lose control and overeat

I want you to know that you’re not alone, and that real lasting change is both possible and proven.

Are you ready for an incredibly simple and effective approach to stop binge eating and become totally free around food so that you can just be yourself?

Welcome to Eating Enlightenment, the scientific and spiritual food treatment methodology which:

  • Starts out with an incredibly simple and effective Food Awareness Journal which is unlike any food calorie diary you’ve ever seen, based on the science of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
  • According to Oxford Clinical Psychology, “Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) is the most effective treatment of binge eating disorder (BED)”.
  • Meta-analysis studies looking at CBT and binge eating demonstrate an incredible 42% abstinence rate from binges after 2-3 months of CBT treatment.

If you are struggling with overeating, and if you are willing to work hard and embrace a uniquely mindful way of journaling without calories then Eating Enlightenment may be for you.

Hi, I’m Jared and I know what it feels like to be broken. Hell, I became a Zen Monk for 13 months in desperation.

I just want you to know that I believe in your innate potential and ability to grow, heal and thrive … perhaps even more than you do at this current moment.

If I can overcome my 10 year struggle with binge eating, isolating social awkwardness, and negative self-worth then I know you can too. Years ago I had no idea about who I was, I just knew I hated myself and I hid my shame in food.

However, I was lucky to join a zen monastery for 13 months where I overcame binge eating (for the first but not last time). 

My mission is to help recreate my zen monastery experience for fellow overeaters who are willing to explore Awareness Journaling as a lifestyle and spiritual path.

44 years of binge eating; gone in 5 months.

I’ve dieted and binged ever since I was 13. After working with Jared for 3 months I nearly stopped binge eating, but I was setup to succeed after a few months of practice on my own. I found the discipline of keeping a food awareness journal before I ate to be incredibly challenging – but honestly I don’t think I would have been able to stop binge eating if I hadn’t dug deep and journaled before I ate for a few months. After I stopped working with Jared, I just needed a few more months of practice on my own and I finally stopped unconscious eating. I’m seriously done for good now!

At first I was nervous …

“At first I was anxious about keeping another food journal. Jared made it clear on our first session how different this way of journaling was from my old calorie log. Overall it is way different than what I expected because the entire point of the journal is to understand my psychology around food. I would say it took me about three weeks where I was super conscious around food and journaling but Jared warned me that I would feel anxious in the beginning, but that this anxiety would go away after a few weeks. When my mentality behind eating changed, I gradually stopped emotional eating and can honestly say I am normal around food again like I used to be!”

I knew I had to give it a shot.

“I was initially wary about working with a younger guy but Jared proved to be the absolute best 🙂 I’ve tried so many different programs but I had never tried Cognitive Behavioral Therapy before and after I read about the research behind this approach I knew I had to give it a shot. The food journal made me realize how judgmental I was towards myself and how this lead to me self sabotaging myself. After I could see my entire thought process around food out on paper, I just naturally started not overeating. I’m now working with Jared to learn Intuitive Eating and gratefully say that Jared is a the best and a very wise zen master!”
