Read one of my favorite eating disorders books:
8 Keys to Recovery from an Eating Disorder: Effective Strategies from Therapeutic Practice and Personal Experience by Carolyn Costin & Gwen Schubert Grabb. From the publisher’s description (and I agree): “For anyone who has suffered, their family and friends, and other helping professionals, this book should be by your side. With great compassion and clinical expertise, Costin and Grabb walk readers through the ins and outs of the recovery process, describing what therapy entails, clarifying the common associated emotions such as fear, guilt, and shame, and, most of all, providing motivation to seek help if you have been discouraged, resistant, or afraid. “
You may be surprised by what you read in Body Respect: What Conventional Health Books Leave Out, Get Wrong, or Just Plain Fail to Understand about Weight, by Linda Bacon, PhD, & Lucy Aphramor, PhD, RD.
The Diet Survivor’s Handbook by Judith Matz is my favorite book for people who have struggled with yo-yo dieting and binge eating disorder. It presents a whole new way of eating and why it is important to make the change.
Eating Disorders Resource Catalog is a website listing high quality resources related to eating disorders and has a comprehensive list of the best books available. You can order a free print catalog that is also available in my office.
