Format: Paperback
My sister read this book before she gave it to me, and it helped her understand eating disorders, and then when i read it, i found it easy to read and easy to follow.
its written by someone who has lived through this and knows exactly how you are feeling which makes it easier to to udnerstand, the exercises are simple but good for you at the same time and you dont feel rushed by any of them.
I look back at it alot, cos the exercises are really useful and helped alot.
I would recommend this book to anyone who needs the help!

Format: Paperback
This well thought out, easy to read book has been my constant guide and companion since I chose recovery from anorexia three years ago. I then picked it up again when I unfortunately developed bulimia earlier this year due to stress at work. It covers all types of eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia, compulsive exercise, compulsive eating and the "non specific" ones where you have symptoms of a few but don't fit right into one category.

Because it's written by a recovered anorexic who has been through all types of recovery strategies (inpatient and outpatient) iIfound it much easier to engage with than so many other books written by professionals, or many of the autobiographical books that just talk about one person's experience. The author includes examples from her own journey, such as extracts from her own recovery diary, which helped me feel more 'normal' as a sufferer and that was a key part of my ability to recover. There is advice on things I had never even considered, as well as therapy exercises, recipes, sample diets, coping stategies and advice on breaking harmful behaviours.

Most importantly a large section of the book is about dealing with setbacks and life after you're well into recovery. I found this comforting and encouraging, and I still refer to it now from time to time.

I can't speak highly enough of this book. If you think you need help, this is a very good to start. It's especially good if like me you are one of those who doesn't quite fit into one category or another, isn't too physically ill and therefore doesn't qualify for much specialist NHS help, and cant afford private treatment.

Fantastic book, great to read something written by an adult, as have an adult in our family suffering with an eating disorder and this book has given my husband and I great support to know recovery can be achieved when lots of doors seem closed to over 18yrs who live away from home. Would recommend this book to sufferers and family members. Be aware though tasks can be emotional to complete,the thoughts of author are so true to sufferers.

Easy to read, I trust it because the author had an ED herself, and I am happy I can do this at home by myself
Beating Eating Disorders Step by Step: A self-Help Guide for Recovery 14 April 2009
By Elaina J. Schwennsen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I've had eating disorder workbooks before, and have always found that they read somewhat belittling towards the reader. I had a similar response to this book, but found it a little less patronizing since the author herself had an eating disorder at one point in her life.
