Media images of "ideal bodies"—which, in reality, are often dangerously thin—make it easy for people to start worrying about their own body shapes and compare themselves to these model ideals. For some people, this concern with thinness becomes an obsession, and they fall victim to eating disorders. The sufferer may starve him- or herself, exercise too much, or deliberately vomit to purge the body of calories. This new edition of Nutrition and Eating Disorders examines some of the most common eating disorders, from anorexia nervosa to binge eating.
