Summary
Are you worried about your food intake? Do you weigh yourself most days and feel guilty if you gain half a pound? Do strict rules dominate your mealtimes and life, just so you can feel more in control?

The A to Z of Eating Disorders is a road map for anyone who wants a way out of the bewildering world of disordered eating and body-image anxiety.

From anorexia, bingeing and clean eating, to social media, yo-yo dieting and size zero, this book explores these complex conditions from a range of angles, offering valuable insights and hope.

In this inspiring, impeccably researched book, renowned writer and broadcaster Emma Woolf says, 'Eating disorders cause untold misery and can affect anyone at any time of life. As someone who has lived through anorexia and recovery, I receive emails every day from those desperate for guidance. The A to Z of Eating Disorders helps to demystify disordered eating and sets you back on the path to a happy, healthy relationship with food.'

Praise for The A to Z of Eating Disorders

'Detailed but to the point, Emma Woolf provides insight, wisdom and practical solutions: The A to Z of Eating Disorders is a must-have for anyone with or caring for someone with an eating disorder.' Renee McGregor, performance and clinical dietitian

I've just been reading your book again for the second time this week, aka The A-Z of Eating Disorders. It's truly an amazing book and its purpose is amazing and I'm just so happy someone has confronted these topics and can educate others because anorexia is such a complex illness which can be hard for 'outsiders' to understand.
Thank you,
Ellie, a reader
