Almost Anorexic: Is My (or My Love One’s) Relationship with Food a Problem? (The Almost Effect)
by Jennifer Thomas and Jenni Schaefer
Do you struggle in the grey area between “normal eating” and anorexia nervosa? Have you have been diagnosed with EDNOS or OSFED? Maybe you feel like you aren’t sick enough to deserve help. You are not alone. While 1 in 200 adults have experienced full-blown anorexia, at least 1 in 20 (1 in 10 teen girls!) have exhibited some key symptoms of anorexia, bulimia, or binge eating disorder. Many suffer from the effects but never address the issue because they don’t fully meet the diagnostic criteria. If this is the case for you, then you may struggle with “almost anorexia,” which is not a lesser disorder. Learn the facts with this inviting, hopeful guide, and develop scientifically based strategies to change unhealthy patterns. Drawing on case studies and the latest research, Almost Anorexic combines a psychologist’s clinical experience with a patient’s personal recovery story to help you (or your loved one) understand and overcome almost anorexia.
