The Overcoming Bulimia Workbook: Your Comprehensive, Step-By-Step Guide to Recovery
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungSevere dieting often results in periods of reactive binge eating--a phenomenon experienced by one in twenty American women. Responses to these episodes may include prolonged fasting, self-induced vomiting, abuse of laxatives and diuretics, and obsessive exercise: all symptoms of bulimia. This workbook contains proven-effective tools to help bulimics break the cycle of bingeing and reacting, allowing them to take control of their lives and make positive behavior changes. By working through the exercises, they normalize eating and deal with whatever issues underlie the symptoms. Recovering bulimics take control of their recovery process with a variety of self-monitoring assessments. Real-life examples offer encouragement.
