An eating disorder is a mental disorder defined by abnormal eating habits that negatively affect a person's physical or mental health. They include binge eating disorder where people eat a large amount in a short period of time, anorexia nervosa where people eat very little and thus have a low body weight, bulimia nervosa where people eat a lot and then try to rid themselves of the food, pica where people eat non-food items, rumination disorder where people regurgitate food, avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder where people have a lack of interest in food, and a group of other specified feeding or eating disorders.

Using Writing as a Therapy for Eating Disorders: The diary healer uses a unique combination of evidence-based research and raw diary excerpts to explain the pitfalls and benefits of diary writing during recovery from an eating disorder. In a time when diary writing remains a largely untapped resource in the health care professions, June Alexander sets out to correct this imbalance, explaining how the diary can inspire, heal and liberate, provide a learning tool for others and help us to understand and cope with life challenges. The book focuses on the power of diary writing, which may serve as a survival tool but become an unintended foe. With guidance, patients who struggle with face-to-face therapy are able to reveal their thoughts through writing and construct a strong sense of self. The effects of family background and the environment are explored, and the therapeutic value of sharing diaries, to better understand illness symptoms and behaviours, is discussed. Using Writing as a Therapy for Eating Disorders will be of interest to those who have recovered or are recovering from eating disorders or any mental illness, as well as therapists, clinicians and others working in the medical and healthcare professions.

"A must read! Raw, compelling, and honest." If You're Ready to Shed More than Just the Weight, Read One Woman's Remarkable Journey of Self-Discovery and Healing In Diary of a Fat Girl you gain an intimate view into how one woman overcame her past and began anew. Through Lisa Sargese's heart-wrenching (but often laugh-out-loud funny) memoir, you'll be inspired to discover your inner strength and drive to triumph in your own life challenges. Diary of a Fat Girl is a must read for anybody who has struggled with body image, self harm, self hatred, abusive relationships, low self esteem, binge eating disorder, bulimia, or a lack of self love. You'll be inspired to see yourself in a whole new way by reading this amazing book. She Knew What She Needed to Do...She Just Couldn't Lisa felt that she should know better than to hate herself for being fat. As a professor of women's studies she knew she should love herself just as she is was - all 420 pounds of herself. But the truth was, she couldn't manage to love herself, try as she might. And even after two lap band weight loss surgeries, she still suffered from binge eating disorder. In Lisa's words, she could eat "two whole pizzas, three Entenmann's cakes, and a two-liter bottle of soda in a three hour binge" all to punish herself for existing. Something Had to Change Lisa's second lap band weight loss surgery had failed over a decade earlier. But she was too poor and too defeated to attempt a third. But after more than ten years of suffering daily binges, unbearable feelings, abusive relationships, and failing physical health, she knew she couldn't continue as she had been. In 2006 she underwent gastric bypass surgery and began the long and difficult journey to health and happiness for the first time in her life. The Surgery Was Just the Beginning Diary of a Fat Girl gives you an uncensored look at the inner world of Lisa for the year following her surgery - the many ups and downs as she battled her demons, physical challenges, and the painful relationships that had plagued her for most of her life. You'll discover - as she did - that the many thoughts we believe about ourselves - our shamefulness, our unlovability, our ugliness - are surprisingly inaccurate. And you may discover along with Lisa's daily accounts, that it is possible to see ourselves in a new light. Pick up your copy of Diary of a Fat Girl and join the many who have been inspired and empowered on the journey of self love and true health. Click the 'Buy now' button on this page now.

In 2000, Peach Friedman, a college senior freshly broken up from her boyfriend, set out to beat the blues by beating herself into shape. Running ten miles a day and taking in as little as 800 calories, she fell from 146 pounds to 100 in three months and was at serious risk of cardiac arrest. What Friedman suffered from was exercise bulimia—a newly diagnosed and rapidly spreading eating disorder that affects some 400,000 American women, and which gyms and colleges across America are beginning to take seriously. In Diary of an Exercise Addict Friedman recounts her descent into a life-threatening illness, her remarkable recovery, and the setbacks along the way. With refreshing candor she lays bare her relationships with family, friends, and lovers and the repressed desire that finally surfaced as she found her own way back to health.

Oh my gosh! I would just like to express to my readers. that I am so delighted that I have completed my first Diary of 5. "PANDORA'S DIARY 1" Pandy asks rather eagerly, to the woman whom she has grown to trust and adore like a mother. "She ask,...Why is it so dark outside?" Why is the sky so starless? Why is he so mean to me, and why does he make me cry so much? Poor Pandy, will she ever hear the real answers to these questions? The diaries are some what fiction as well as non fiction. It will be for the reader to determine for themselves what is real, and what is not. I will like to add that each diary will draw the reader closer to Pandor's Diary. The reader will have to be careful not to fall prey to all that is recited on the pages... for it may take them on a fasenating journey to hell. I would like to add that the journy's that Pandy travels, may or may not be the right steps at all times, but one thing is know for sure the reader will be drawn to love and applaud her for being so brave and humble along her many journy's in her life, or maybe even her last journey...but who knows for sure what Pandy's last journey will be? PANDORA'S DIARY 1, WILL BE A TRUE AND MYSTIFYING JOURNEY THAT WILL LEAVE YOU WANTING MORE AND MORE... PLEASE LOOK FOR OTHER GREAT BOOKS AUTHORED BY, MARILYN K. DORLAC.
