    DescriptionDetermine if your eating behaviours are a problem, develop strategies to change unhealthy patterns, and learn when and how to get professional help when needed with this practical, engaging guide to taking care of yourself when you are not a full-blown anorexic. Every day millions of us struggle with eating. We stand at the mirror wondering how we can face the day when we look so fat. We over-exercise. We skip meals, go on fad diets, and scan labels for "fat free." Still, we are never thin enough. Sitting down to a meal feels like facing a battle. Many of us suffer from the symptoms and effects of anorexia, but never address the issue because we don't fully meet the diagnostic criteria. One major study estimates that while 1 in 200 adults have experienced the full anorexia syndrome, as many as 1 in 20 have exhibited at least some of the key symptoms.If this is the case for you, then you may be "almost anorexic". With this groundbreaking book, you can get help for yourself or a loved one. Drawing on case studies and the latest research, eating disorder experts Jennifer Thomas and Jenni Schaefer give you the skills to:Understand the symptoms of almost anorexia and its place on the spectrum from normal eating behaviours to a full-blown eating disorderDetermine if you (or your loved one's) relationship with food is a problemGain insight on how to intervene with a loved oneDiscover proven strategies to change unhealthy eating patternsLearn when and how to get professional help when it's needed

    Review quote
    "Almost Anorexic" is a must read for anyone concerned with their own or a loved one's relationship with food and body. I am not a professional, I am a survivor and I promise you will relate to the words on every page and gain so much insight from this incredible book." - David H., Book Bargains, 5 Star Review "Almost Anorexic succeeds in achieving balance among eating disorder assessment and treatment principles grounded in scientific research, clinical practice, and personal experience. The partnership between Thomas (researcher and clinician) and Schaefer (author with personal experience with eating disorder recovery) is commendable and will be invaluable to helping men and women who are struggling with "almost anorexia."- The AED (Academy for Eating Disorders) Forum "Thoughtfully educates the reader of the dangers of eating disorders that might not fit within the common public understanding."--Lynn S. Grefe, president and CEO, National Eating Disorders Association "Anorexia Nervosa, a serious and potentially life-threatening disorder, is relatively rare. Much more common are subclinical symptoms which are nonetheless very distressing and problematic. "Almost Anorexic "uniquely and compellingly describes this important phenomenon and provides down-to-earth guidance on how to overcome such problems."--B. Timothy Walsh, professor of psychiatry, Columbia University, and chair of the DSM-5 Eating Disorders Work Group "I wish "Almost Anorexic"had been written when my daughter was ""almost anorexic." " This book might have given us the information we needed to intervene before our daughter moved into full-blown anorexia, and it might have helped us save her life."--Kitty Westin, advocacy director, The Emily Program Foundation "A vibrant read with a fresh perspective on the perilous gray zone between healthy and anorexic."--Cynthia Bulik, author of "Midlife Eating Disorders "and director of the UNC Center of Excellen
