    What people are saying

    I was hesitant to buy this book because I wasn’t sure if you had to be a therapist to understand it, and I’m so glad I gave it a shot ( I normally only write reviews when they’re negative, but I had to say something because this book is so amazing). This book is about more than eating disorders. The author really gives you a peek into the lives of people who struggle and helps you understand why they develop issues with food and weight. It’s a compassionate perspective, an interesting and easy read, and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in learning more about eating disorders or mental health in general.

    Food For Thought Fed My Soul.

    I believe people and books appear in your life when you are ready to receive their wisdom. I was bulimic for 46 years, went for treatment and actually today – Valentine Day – I am celebrating being five years binge and purge free.

    I always resisted calling my bulimia more than just a bad habit. Until I read Food for Thought. The book dispelled my resistance dramatically to delving deeper into the origins of my disordered eating patterns.

    Dr. Savelle-Rocklin states: "Bulimia is a symptom that contains and expresses a plethora of meanings; it can be understood as a defense against painful emotional experience, an expression of ambivalence, an attempt at mastery, and a means of self-regulation."

    That is only a taste of the mind-blowing tidbits of information sprinkled throughout Food for Thought, many of which are drawn from examples of different patients battling with eating, weight and body image.

    I have a ton of books on my bookshelves. But this is one I keep close.
