Summary

Summary

Nancy J. Kolodny's benchmark self-help guide for young adults has been a useful, reliable, and popular resource for more than ten years. This revised and updated edition includes the latest information about new forms of eating disorders; the growing population of eating-disordered males; eating disorders in elementary- and middle-school-age children; new drug treatments and nontraditional therapies; and the use of computers, e-mail, and the Internet as sources of support for eating disorder victims. When Food's a Foe offers no-nonsense explanations of how anorexia and bulimia can develop, practical advice on how to begin the road to recovery, and constructive, interactive exercises in self-awareness -- all of which are aimed at empowering victims to confront their eating disorder and conquer it.
