Publisher Comments:

"Bulimia: A Guide for Family and Friends lets you see what most only see in hindsight — the basic ingredients and causes of bulimia — and helps you realize that, despite the frustration felt by all those involved, there is hope." — Anita Rigby, mother of Olympic champion Cathy Rigby McCoy

Bulimia answers the questions asked most frequently by the families and friends of bulimics. The authors — both experts on the causes and treatment of eating disorders — have created the first authoritative step-by-step guide to this complex disease. They reveal bulimia's insidious nature including the fact that those who care the most about helping can actually make things worse. Filled with practical information and advice, this essential resource offers hope to millions of bulimics and their loved ones.

a revised paperback edition of the classic guide for families and friends of bulimics who are attempting to understand this widespread disorder and assist in their loved one's recovery.

Bulimia is an eating disorder characterized by bingeing episodes of secret, high-caloric bingeing, followed by medically dangerous, self-induced purging, fasting, or excessive exercise. Millions of young people, primarily women, engage in this compulsive cycle of gorging and throwing up, and trying to hide a pattern of behavior which signals deep and often deadly psychological problems. "Bulimia" is the first book to answer the questions asked most frequently by the families and friends of bulimics, such as: What can we do to break the potentially lethal cycle? Why do some women, and not others, become bulimic? What are the medical risks? How can bulimia be treated? Written in a user-friendly, question-and-answer format, the two authors — both experts on the causes and treatment of eating disorders — reveal the insidious and complex nature of the disease, how those who care the most about helping can actually make things worse, and step-by-step practical information and advice that offers hope to millions of bulimics and their loved ones.
