You Are Why You Eat : Change Your Food Attitude, Change Your Life
By Dr. Ramani Durvasula
Weight loss is a dangerous business in America – more about appearance than health, more about deprivation than self-care, more about listening to others than listening to yourself.  We know that dieting may be one of the single most consistent predictors of developing eating disorders and dysfunctional eating patterns. You Are WHY You Eat is a revolutionary approach to weight loss. This book is a myth buster and takes on some oldies but goodies – the idea that exercise is the key to weight loss, the danger of diets, and most importantly it highlights the only tool any of us have – the importance of listening to ourselves.  There are no shortcuts and this is a life change book, not just a weight change book.

Your Dieting Daughter, Second Edition: Antidotes Parents Can Provide for Body Dissatisfaction, Excessive Dieting, and Disorder Eating
By Carolyn Costin
First written in 1996 this new edition of Your Dieting Daughter offers an updated look at how we can best raise females in a culture obsessed with dieting and thinness, yet fraught with the rising problem of overweight youth and our cultural “war on obesity.” Though well known for her expertise in eating disorders, author Carolyn Costin speaks to a much larger audience with chapters such as, The Thin Commandments, Fit or Fanatic, Mirror Mirror on the Wall, and Daddy’s Girl as she helps mothers, fathers, friends and family members look at the cultural pressures to lose weight that often go unnoticed or get unwittingly perpetuated. Best of all Carolyn provides readers with successful antidotes to help young girls navigate the culture they find themselves in. Finally, Carolyn delivers important information as she explains how a diet turns into a disorder and gives readers specific strategies to deal with eating disorders once this has in fact become a reality.
