When we discuss eating disorders, there's a tendency to focus on the sufferer. Yet there are millions of concerned parents, carers, friends and relatives who are confused and frustrated - both by their own personal circumstances, and by the abundance of potentially misleading information. Hope with Eating Disorders offers real understanding of the mind-set of someone suffering with an eating disorder, plus an extensive description of the various treatments available for the many and varied types of eating disorders that exist. With interviews from some of the world's leading experts, it sends the message that real, full and lasting recovery is possible, despite what we are so often told.Having helped her own daughter on the journey from an eating disorder back to health and happiness, Lynn wants the HOPE within these pages to leap out and give a hug of inspiration and strength; to you, a friend or a loved one. With the help of this book you can progressively break the negative spiral of this all too common illness once and for all.

Decoding Anorexia is the first and only book to explain anorexia nervosa from a biological point of view. Its clear, user-friendly descriptions of the genetics and neuroscience behind the disorder is paired with first person descriptions and personal narratives of what biological differences mean to sufferers. Author Carrie Arnold, a trained scientist, science writer, and past sufferer of anorexia, speaks with clinicians, researchers, parents, other family members, and sufferers about the factors that make one vulnerable to anorexia, the neurochemistry behind the call of starvation, and why it's so hard to leave anorexia behind. She also addresses: • How environment is still important and influences behaviors • The characteristics of people at high risk for developing anorexia nervosa • Why anorexics find starvation “rewarding” • Why denial is such a salient feature, and how sufferers can overcome it Carrie also includes interviews with key figures in the field who explain their work and how it contributes to our understanding of anorexia. Long thought to be a psychosocial disease of fickle teens, this book alters the way anorexia is understood and treated and gives patients, their doctors, and their family members hope.

Described by best-selling author and physician Lendon Smith, author of Feed Your Kids Right, as “the most helpful book on eating disorders there is,” this book will, with God’s help and grace, lead readers out of their bondage to eating disorders and permanently transform lives.

It dominates your thoughts, it determines your actions, it demands your attention, it dictates your emotions. What is it? Food. Imagine a life where every day, the thought of food consumes your mind. When you eat, what you eat, how much you eat, who you eat with, where you will eat, it's always on your mind. Imagine a life where the more you seek control, the more out of control things become and the less control you actually have. Imagine a life where snakes, spiders, or heights are not your biggest fear but eating, gaining weight, mirrors, and scales are your biggest fears. To many people struggling with eating disorders, this life is reality. This life where every waking moment your thoughts turn to food, and your constant worry is that you are fat or gaining weight. The following is a memoir of a young girl's journey as she struggles to overcome the battle against anorexia. The following is a memoir about how a young girl turns from controlling what she eats to be controlled BY what she eats and her journey to give that control over to God, to find her identity in Him, to find satisfaction in the way He made her. Join this young girl as she tells her story about her struggles, fears, and addiction with food and how friends, family, and most importantly God, helped her turn from that path of destruction to the path of healing, recovery, and restoration. The journey is not easy and the path is not smooth, but please join her as she shares her encounters on her journey and shows how God helped to transform her mind from one that believed the lies portrayed in the lying mirror to one that rests in the Truth.
