Increasing numbers of people have a problem with eating disorders and poor body image. Anorexia, bulimia and compulsive eating all bring their own distressing social and health problems, while a distorted body image can result in a severely restricted life. In this book, Christine Craggs-Hinton explains clearly the social pressures behind the need to be an ideal shape, and how we can fight back. She also examines why some people see themselves as overweight or ugly although they are normal, healthy, and the right body weight and size for their sex, age and build.

Topics covered include:
- the role of the media in creating unrealistic portraits of how we should look
- the importance of self-esteem, and how to boost it
- body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) and its link with media influence
- alcoholism: also a problem of low self-esteem - and its link with eating disorders
- tackling negative thoughts
- dealing with anxiety, and how to relax
- practical exercises to get back to a healthy relationship with food

Recovery from eating disorders and poor body image is possible, so start today!
