HASH(0xa67339b4) out of 5 stars TRIGGERING for those with EDs! Nov. 6 2012
By galbsy - Published on
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!
