Book Description

Jan. 15 2009
Starvation eating disorders such as anorexia not only affect your body, but also take a devastating toll on your mind. Constantly feeling anxious about your weight, your appearance, and your self-worth can leave you mentally exhausted. And no matter how thin you become, it's impossible to be happy when you are controlled by anxious and obsessive thoughts.

If you're ready to stop letting your eating disorder run your life, Feeding the Starving Mind can help. As you work through the program in this book, you'll discover the source of your eating disorder, identify the compulsive thoughts that contribute to it, and take steps toward developing a healthy relationship with food and exercise.

• Develop a personal eating disorder profile • Learn how to eat without purging and restore your weight • Learn cognitive behavior therapy skills for managing weight-related anxiety and fear • Create a treatment plan to restore your health and happiness • Keep destructive thoughts and patterns of behavior from coming back

1.0 out of 5 stars TRIGGERING for those with EDs! Nov. 6 2012
By galbsy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
So far I have only gone through chapters 1-2 but I am APPALLED. I have EDNOS (restricting type) and thought this would be a good workbook to go through with my therapist. Well only a chapter or two in, I'm on the verge of an anxiety attack, tears, and feel so triggered. The author seems to equate starving yourself with being underweight. And in order to be diagnosed with EDNOS you can be on the "low-normal range" of your BMI. This is ***FALSE*** information. There is only a weight/BMI criteria for Anorexia Nervosa, and not EDNOS. And for the record I am not even close to being underweight despite being very restrictive in my diet (essentially starving myself). Reading this is completely invalidating to anyone suffering from a real starvation disorder. Chapter 1 even encourages the reader to calculate their BMI and places importance on it. There are a lot more to eating disorders (ANY type) than weight, and this author seems to be stating the opposite.

In summary, I think this book can be detrimental to go through. Read with caution if you have an eating disorder!
