Feasting and Fasting
I wish I could stop eating is the cry of every compulsive eater. The obsessive pattern of feasting and fasting is well known to the author who suffered from anorexia in the past. In a very personal and readable way she analyses the lives of many compulsive esters. These case histories show that stress, guilt, lack of control, unhappiness, feelings of inferiority or psychological imbalances can spark off food craving, gorging or starvation. Jennifer Pulling shows that the sufferer is not alone. She pinpoints the dangers and symptoms to look out for suggesting positive changes in life style and nutrition designed to help the sufferer of an eating disorder conquer this. It can be done. The book offers hope based on the author’s own experience.
