The eating disorders--anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and obesity--affect thousands of people each year, particularly young women. This comprehensive guide considers why eating disorders occur, and then looks at each in turn, describing the eating behaviors, diagnosis, and treatments available.
This new edition is fully up-to-date, and includes more information on young people's weight- control measures, as well as the psychological aspects and treatments available for each disorder. The authors emphasize the importance of learning sensible eating, exercise patterns, and the role of self-help in recovery. Sympathetically and clearly written, the book provides an authoritative resource on eating disorders and how to treat them, especially designed for sufferers and their families.
