Eating disorders are now accepted as addictions, and like more familiar addictions like alcoholism and drug abuse, they cause pain, suffering and alienation, and can kill. Hundreds of thousands of people become clinically ill through bulimia or anorexia; binge or comfort-eat, burdening themselves with low self-esteem and misery; or, like most women and an increasing number of men, find themselves limited by the fact that they can never eat without feeling guilty. This book explains why food becomes fear for so many people. Real case histories are quoted with no medical jargon, and sufferers are encouraged to understand their feelings in order to control their relationship to food.
