It's completely brilliant, and anyone interested in body disorders in Western culture should start with Bordo.

May 06, Jul 09, Oct 31, Eating Disorder Recovery Reading Buddies http: Sorry I didn't think it was spam to tell people rating a thread about eating disorders on Goodreads that there is now a group here ON GOODREADS where people can talk about eating disorder recovery and read eating disorder recovery books together, such as many of the books on this list If I were posting to some external link or something, then I would totally agree.
I was really just trying to let people know it was there and reach out so that they could join and we could all help each other with this ED journey: If you think that is spam, I am sorry. That is unfortunate. Aug 17, I must admit to being sad that Wasted is number 1. For me, it did much more damage than good, triggering me and giving me more tips and strategies than it did aid my recovery.
I hope that I am alone in this fact but I fear that it leads to more relapse than it leads to recovery. I actually found a book called Going Hungry to be very helpful.

I love this. Jul 28, Sirja wrote: I swear this book taught me how to be a better anorexic.
This book is great if you want to be sick. I appreciate her honesty but, at time, it is too honest. I saw her speak at Harvard last Fall, which helped me come to terms with Wasted and Marya.
She said that when she wrote Wasted, she was very sick and did not mean for it to be a guide for killing yourself. I wouldn't read this again. Jan 19, Heather wrote: I hope that I am alon I loved the book, it really put into words some of my own personal experiences, and it was nice to see someone else had thought like me at one point as well, if that makes sense. Yes, it was triggering, but so has been most ED books for me, especially winter girls, but if triggering is a problem, its best to stick to self help books strictly.
Its the first ED book I've read thats been raw and honest and real about the hell that is an eating disorder. I personally think books like this are very important. Dec 07, A warrior-mother's perspective?
Read this story! Dancing with a Demon https: Jan 07, I have removed Before I fall by Lauren Oliver for not meeting the criteria. It's an amazing book but not one that focuses on eating disorders. Please stick to the theme when adding books. Feb 02, Hey y'all, I just started a new book club called "Damage" under groups that you can join if you'd like! It focuses on reading a book every other month that is about physical, mental, emotional, or intellectual differences. And yes, I redefine how "damage" should be viewed in the group description!
Hope you join!

This is a tale of self-loathing, self-sabotage, and yes, self-tanner. It begins at a posh New England prep school—and with a prescription for Attention Deficit Disorder medication Ritalin.

Free-spirited new girl Gigi just wants to dance—but the very act might kill her.
And perfectionist June needs to land a lead role this year or her controlling mother will put an end to her dancing dreams forever. When every dancer is both friend and foe, the girls will sacrifice, manipulate, and backstab to be the best of the best. I look in the mirror. How could it not?

Carmen knows that as far as her mom is concerned, there is only one option: When her mother sweeps her off to live in the city, Carmen finds that her old world is disappearing.
As her life spirals out of control Carmen begins to take charge of the only thing she can—what she eats. If she were thin, very thin, could it all be different?

Seventeen-year-old Stevie is trapped. In her life. In her body. And now in an eating disorder treatment center on the dusty outskirts of the New Mexico desert. Life in the center is regimented and intrusive, a nightmare come true. Her dad has signed her up for sixty days of treatment. And if Stevie gets her way, there are only twenty-seven days until she, too, will end her life. After the death of her father, Laurel is haunted by a legacy of family secrets, hidden shame, and shattered glass.

But when she runs away from the past, she discovers a passion so powerful, it brings her roundabout and face-to-face with the demons she wants to avoid. These trees fall unexpectedly during a storm. A dropped extracurricular, a C on a calc quiz, a non-Jewish shiksa girlfriendone misstep, and his meticulously constructed life splinters and collapses.
The pocketful of breath mints. The weird smell in the bathroom. Then, after school, she put them into practice by running her Mercedes off the road. Why did Liz Emerson decide that the world would be better off without her? Why did she give up? How do we impact one another? How do our actions reverberate? What does it mean to be a friend? To love someone? To be a daughter? Or a mother? Is life truly more than cause and effect? But when she finally confesses her secret to her parents and is hospitalized at the Samuel Tuke Center, her journey is only beginning.
As Jennifer progresses through her treatment, she learns to recognize her relationship with food, and friends, and family—and how each is healthy or unhealthy. She has to believe—after many years of being a believarexic.

With luminous, lyrical prose, Binary Star is an impassioned account of a young woman struggling with anorexia and her long-distance, alcoholic boyfriend. Binary Star is an intense, fast-moving saga of two young lovers and the culture that keeps them sick or at least inundated with quick-fix solutions ; a society that sells diet pills, sleeping pills, magazines that profile celebrities who lose weight or too much weight or put on weight, and books that pimp diet secrets or recipes for success.
Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace. He has looks and wealth; she has charm and elegance. Though they are still newlyweds, they seem to have it all. You might not want to like them, but you do. Some might call this true love. Others might wonder why Grace never answers the phone.
How she can cook such elaborate meals but remain so slim. Or why she never seems to take anything with her when she leaves the house, not even a pen.
Or why there are such high-security metal shutters on all the downstairs windows. Brought on by the obsession over weight and calories, and fueled by low self-esteem, she falls victim to an eating disorder. The world she enters is a world where thoughts are overrun by fears, lies are no longer fiction, and reality is miles away. The healthy nineteen year old that used to be is replaced by a weaker girl unable to keep up with her peers.
In order to get better, change is the only option. The journey told starts during the height of the sickness and follows Erin through the many challenges and lessons of treatment. In order to start her process in recovery, she must face her greatest fear: There are millions around the world who are living her story, still struggling to find their way.
What if their child had been born healthy? Willow is Willow, in sickness and in health. Everything changes, though, after a series of events forces Charlotte and her husband to confront the most serious what-ifs of all. What if things could have been different? What if their beloved Willow had never been born?
To do Willow justice, Charlotte must ask herself these questions and one more. What constitutes a valuable life? The writers in this groundbreaking anthology reveal a world where bodies come in all their many-splendored shapes, sizes, colors, and textures.
In doing so, they expand the national dialogue on body image to include race, ethnicity, sexuality, and power—issues that, while often overlooked, are intimately linked to how women feel about their bodies. Body Outlaws offers stories by those who have chosen to ignore, subvert, or redefine the dominant beauty standard in order to feel at home in their bodies. In our appearance-obsessed society, eating is about much more than hunger and sustenance.
Food inspires pleasure and anxiety, shame and obsession.
Powerful and immensely informative, this collection makes accessible the mindset of a disease that has long been misunderstood. A baby no one knows about. A dangerous hidden identity. Off-limits hookups. Everyone keeps secrets—from themselves, from their families, from their friends—and secrets have a habit of shaping the lives around them.
Do they make you stronger or weaker? Do they alter your world when revealed?
