Beyond a Shadow of a Diet is the most comprehensive book available for professionals working with clients who struggle with Binge Eating Disorder, Compulsive Eating or Emotional Overeating. The authors present research revealing that food restrictions in the pursuit of weight loss actually trigger and sustain overeating. Next, they offer step-by-step guidelines to help clients end the diet mentality and learn an internally-based approach known as attuned eating. Divided into three sections–The Problem, The Treatment and The Solution–this engaging book contains chapters filled with compelling case examples, visualizations and other exercises so that therapists can deepen their knowledge and skills as they help clients gain freedom from preoccupation with food and weight. In addition to addressing the symptoms, dynamics and treatment of eating problems, Beyond a Shadow of a Diet presents a holistic framework that goes well beyond the clinical setting. This invaluable resource includes topics such as the clinician’s own attitudes toward dieting and weight; cultural, ethical and social justice issues; the neuroscience of mindfulness; weight stigma; and promoting wellness for children of all sizes. Drawing from the Health At Every Size paradigm–and the wealth of research examining the relationship between dieting, weight and health–Beyond a Shadow of a Diet offers both therapists and their clients a positive, evidence-based model to making peace with food, their bodies and themselves.

Filling a gap in the literature, this volume synthesizes what is known about binge eating and its treatment. Representing a collaboration of experts from various fields, the book describes the history of binge eating and examines the controversies surrounding its definition and classification. Chapters consider binge eating from the perspectives of bulimia nervosa, anorexia nervosa, obesity, and addictive disorders. Methods for assessment are examined, and the efficacy of drug treatment, short-term psychological treatment, and psychodynamic psychotherapy are evaluated. This volume is one of the first to propose "binge eating disorder" as a category in DSM-IV. Two practical manuals show how to conduct a standardized interview for assessing eating disorders and how to provide cognitive-behavioral treatment to those who binge eat. This book will be of interest to psychologists, psychiatrists, dieticians, and others concerned with eating disorders and their treatment.
