Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The first book to address a disturbing new trend: dangerous eating patterns in midlife women that can have serious health consequences.

Struggling to cope with the stress of menopause, empty nest syndrome, caring for ailing parents, work overload, and the cultural emphasis on youth and beauty, more and more women find themselves eating compulsively to ease tension, manage anxiety, quell depression, and distract themselves from what's really eating them. Others obsessively follow strict diets or exercise excessively.

In this groundbreaking book, clinical psychologist Cynthia M. Bulik, Ph.D., and dietitian Nadine Taylor team up to present a patient-tested 8-step program to help women regain a healthy relationship with food. Readers also will find:

o A thorough explanation of the full spectrum of

Runaway Eating behaviors, from occasional lapses

into binge eating to restrictive dieting to compulsive exercising

o Alternative ways to alleviate anxiety and defuse

depression

o Practical strategies for managing the menopausal symptoms that often lead to disordered eating

Synopsis:

In this first book to address a disturbing new trend: dangerous eating patterns in midlife women, clinical psychologist Bulik and dietitian Taylor team up to present a patient-tested ten-point program to help women regain a healthy relationship with food.

Synopsis:

This book examines the new and growing phenomenon of adult-onset sub-threshold eating disorders, particularly in midlife women (age 30 and over.). It focuses on women from their thirties to their sixties whose disordered eating patterns usually go unrecognized because they don't fit the clinical definitions of anorexia, bulimia, or binge eating disorder. Yet their relationship with food is anything but healthy, as these women may severely restrict their food intake, binge, purge, exercise excessively, or abuse laxatives. These disordered eating problems often arise as women struggle to cope with a combination of midlife stresses, including the hormonal changes of menopause, increasing financial and family responsibilities, and the cultural emphasis on youth and beauty
