When an eating disorder (ED) is involved, the problems caused by miscommunication can have serious consequences. A remark from a parent that is intended as positive encouragement could act as a trigger and a criticism from someone with an ED might really be a cry for help. This book aims to improve communication between someone with an eating disorder and their friends and family by revealing the eating disorder mind set and decoding language choices. Using examples of real-life, everyday conversations, ED says U said translates the highly charged language of anorexia, bulimia and binge eating disorder and unravels the emotional chaos that can surround sufferers and those who care for them. It provides clear examples of the common pitfalls and gives invaluable advice about how to help in defusing the triggers and regaining the personality swamped by the illness. A unique resource of information on EDs, this book will be essential reading for everyone who has been affected by eating disorders: sufferers, carers, family and friends, together with health care professionals treating people with eating disorders.

Review:

Alexander and Sangster have honored the true voice of loved ones and friends with eating disorders by translating their spoken words and nonverbal messages. They've done so with respect and great insight. --from the foreword by Laura Collins, executive director, F.E.A.S.T

One of the most difficult aspects of an eating disorder is the way the illness distorts anything and everything that's said to the sufferer. This book will help expose those distortions in a simple but highly effective way. An important read for both clinicians and families. --Harriet Brown, author of Brave Girl Eating: A Family's Struggle with Anorexia

Communication becomes a core problem for people with eating disorders who often cry: 'You do not listen.' This book bridges this gulf --Professor Janet Treasure, King's College, London
