Review by Library Journal Review

Beck, a licensed therapist with extensive experience treating eating disorders, takes a multifaceted approach to helping those with clinical eating problems overcome them. The book barely mentions food per se, but rather views eating disorders as brain-generated conditions, thus potentially brain-cured. A variety of approaches are suggested-one for each of the title's 21 days. Among the solutions offered are a 12-step program modified from Alcoholics Anonymous, journaling, finding a support group, developing spiritual growth through prayer and meditation, creative visualization, and undertaking personal energy work. An appendix includes a listing of various 12-step groups, online resources for information on eating disorders as well as eating disorder treatment centers, and, finally, an extensive list of recommended reading. VERDICT This book is not recommended for dieters but rather those with clinical eating disorders ready to undertake a great deal of work to seek treatment and wellness. Best for specialized health collections and public libraries with large health collections.-Olga B. Wise, Austin, TX (c) Copyright 2012.
