Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

'Appetite for Life is a breakthrough in the field of eating disorders and for those who suffer from them. Through real-life stories of inspiration and recovery, Margie Ryerson's fresh, effective approach proves that it is possible to triumph over eating disorders and live a healthy, happy life. Not only will I use Margie's powerful examples in my own practice, I will also recommend her book to all my clients, their families, and all the eating disorder professionals I know.'
-Debra Waterhouse MPH, RD, best-selling author of Outsmarting the Female Fat Cell and Outsmarting the Mother/Daughter Food Trap

Appetite for Life shares the true stories of healing and hope from seven survivors of eating disorders and chronicles their journeys toward health and inner peace.

Author Margie Ryerson, a marriage and family therapist, brings over twenty years of professional experience in helping individuals and their families recover from the devastation of anorexia, bulimia, and compulsive overeating. Helpful topics include:

  • What to do if you or someone you love has an eating disorder
  • How to overcome guilt and shame
  • How to find the best treatment and support

Appetite for Life offers compassion, support, and practical advice not only to those who suffer from eating disorders, but also to their loved ones.
