Summary
Professor J. Hubert Lacey says that understanding the factors that cause and maintain eating disorders is crucial. This expert guide presents a specialised treatment programme designed to help people who want to stop binge-eating and get on with their lives. Bulimia is on the increase, affecting women and men, and is primarily a psychological condition rooted in low self-esteem and depression. Other symptoms include weight fluctuations and irregular periods, and complications can be life-threatening, from rupture of the stomach to heart attack. The good news is that bulimia is highly treatable. Bulimia, Binge-Eating and their Treatment, whose lead author is the pioneering expert in the field, gives the latest thinking and advice on this sensitive subject.
