Books on Eating Disorders
Almost Anorexic: Is My (or My Loved One's) Relationship
with Food a Problem?
By Jennifer J. Thomas, Ph.D. and Jenni Schaefer
If you (or a loved one) experience symptoms of anorexia nervosa but do not quite meet the official criteria for the disorder, you are not alone. “Almost
anorexia” (a pattern of subclinical eating disorder symptoms) is actually eight times more common than full-blown anorexia, and the dangers of the two conditions are similar. In some cases “almost anorexia” is even more serious than the full-syndrome diagnosis. Co-authored by a clinical psychologist and a recovered patient -- both experts in the field of eating disorders -- this reader-friendly guide will provide you with help and hope as you gain personal insight and develop a healthier relationship with food.
