Does every woman have an eating disorder? It’s a bold question but one that must be asked. Why is it that today’s women—students, career women, wives, and mothers, even those who don’t suffer from a clinical eating disorder—are struggling more than ever with what they eat and how they feel about their bodies?
We live in a culture of culinary abundance but are taught to do whatever it takes to shrink our flesh. From an early age, women are bombarded with messages regarding what size and shape they should be, a campaign that takes a toll on their relationship with food, their health, and their self-esteem.
In Does Every Woman Have an Eating Disorder?, you will
• discover why your dieting attempts always end in failure
• learn how to think critically about media, advertising, and everyday conversations we have about food and weight
• get tips to develop a healthy approach with exercise
Most important, you’ll learn to stop obsessing about food and weight and discover how to eat in peace.
