Review quote

“Overall this book provides an interesting insight into the psychology of eating and should be a useful resource for those who work in the field of nutrition and dietetics, particularly those who work in weight loss, obesity treatment or the treatment of eating disorders. It should also be a useful read for anyone who wants to understand more about why we eat what we eat, and why many have eating habits/behaviours that may not always be good for their health." (Nutrition Bulletin, June 2010)

Back cover copy

The second edition of "The Psychology of Eating: From Healthy to Disordered Behavior" continues its detailed overview of the latest research relating to this broad field. While the book draws on sociology, psychiatry, and other related disciplines to explore the range of eating-related behaviors, its primary emphasis is on the psychology of eating, as viewed from a social, health, and clinical perspective. Topics addressed include the nature of a healthy diet, how we make choices around what to eat, dieting and body dissatisfaction, and the root causes and treatments of obesity, bulimia, and anorexia. Written in a lively and accessible manner, "The Psychology of Eating" offers deep insights into why we eat and it is an invaluable source of information for lay readers and professionals alike who wish to broaden their understanding of eating-related behavior.
