Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Millions of men and women struggle with disordered eating. Some stand at the mirror wondering how they can face the day when they look so fat. Others binge, purge, or exercise compulsively. Many skip meals, go on diet after diet, or cut out entire food groups. Still, they are never thin enough.

While 1 in 200 adults have experienced full-blown anorexia, at least 1 in 20 (1 in 10 teen girls!) have exhibited some key symptoms. Many suffer from the effects but never address the issue because they don't fully meet the diagnostic criteria. If this is the case for you, then you may be "almost anorexic." Drawing on case studies and the latest research, Almost Anorexic combines a psychologist's clinical experience with a patient's personal recovery story to help readers understand and overcome almost anorexia.

Almost Anorexic will give you the skills to:

  • Understand the symptoms of almost anorexic;
  • Determine if your (or your loved one's) relationship with food is a problem;
  • Gain insight on how to intervene with a loved one;
  • Discover scientifically proven strategies to change unhealthy eating patterns;
  • Learn when and how to get professional help when it's needed.
