Its Not About Food

It’s Not About Food gives you the tools and the understanding to break the destructive cycle of bingeing, dieting, and self-starvation. By using the proven techniques developed in the Beyond Hunger workshops, you will be able to transform your relationship not only with food, but also with your body and yourself. These exercises and meditations will help you determine the differences between what your body craves to eat, what your mind thinks you should eat, and what your emotions are driving you to eat. This non-diet approach goes beneath the symptoms of eating disorders and explores the cultural pressures women face, along with the physical, emotional, and spiritual concerns that create the need to overeat or undereat in the first place.

Over It, A teen’s guide to getting beyond obsessions with food and weight

Every year, desperate parents try to save their daughters from starving themselves to death. Yet every year, more girls eat less to look like their favorite supermodels. With this sobering fact in mind, Carol Emery Normandi and Laurelee Roark developed this book based on their ongoing workshops and the feedback of hundreds of young women. They look at the behaviors that may lead to eating disorders and the cultural, emotional, and physical reasons girls obsess about weight and eating. They go on to offer girls and their parents a map and a method for finding a realistic and livable balance. Stories and quotations from girls who have struggled with eating disorders give the book immediacy, and exercises and writing suggestions steer girls toward a healthy self-image and wholesome eating patterns.
