Eating disorders are becoming ever more common, but for many people they are still a taboo subject. Drawing on the author's own experience and that of fellow sufferers, this volume not only reveals what having an eating disorder is really like, but also shows that it is possible to break free, recover, and live a healthy and satisfying life. Written specifically for teens and their families, Why Can't I Look the Way I Want? is packed full of practical information and case studies which tackle everything from dieting and food anxiety to physical and emotional rehabilitation and re-establishing relationships, as well as covering all the major disorders - including anorexia nervosa, bulimia, exercise bulimia, and the growing male eating disorder, muscle dysmorphia or 'bigorexia'.
