There are many
wonderful new books and websites to help disregulated eaters and the people who
treat them. Although I haven’t read the titles listed below, I recommend them
based on what I know about them and their authors. If you’ve read any of them,
feel free to comment in the space below this blog and please encourage others
to visit these websites and read these books. Look for them at Gurze Books.
When I was
recovering, I tried to read as much as I could about how to move beyond my eating
problems and what I needed to do to recover. An insight here, a new perspective
there, it all adds up and moves you forward. And, remember, as each of us recovers, we’re reshaping cultural
norms about eating and weight and working toward building a society that has a
more natural, saner, comfortable relationship with food.
