The publication four years ago of Getting Better Bit(e) by Bit(e), written by two eating disorder specialists at London's world-famous Maudsley Hospital, was a milestone in the treatment of bulimia. For the first time a self-help book was shown, by rigorous clinical trials, to cure a significant fraction of women suffering from bulimia, and to reduce the therapist contact time needed by others. Getting Better Bit(e) by Bit(e) offered an efficient way of treating bulimic patients, which would be valued by any resource-conscious health service. The authors of Getting Better Bit(e) by Bit(e) have now written this Clinician's Guide, to help health care professionals maximize the benefit that patients obtain from the self-help book. Based on the authors' wide-ranging experience of treating eating disorder patients, it provides a step-by-step account of how the chapters in Getting Better Bit(e) by Bit(e) can be used to ameliorate various aspects of bulimics' difficulties, with examples drawn from real patients' case histories. Particular emphasis is given to the problem of motivating patients who are reluctant to change their behaviour, using Miller and Rollnick's motivational interviewing approach. The Clinician's Guide to Getting Better Bit(e) by Bit(e) will be invaluable for all those treating sufferers of bulimia.

Portia de Rossi wog nur noch 38 Kilogramm, als sie am Set einer Hollywood-Produktion zusammenbrach. Nach außen hin war sie blond, schlank und schön, glamourös und erfolgreich. Doch innerlich war sie fast tot. Sie beschreibt unaufgeregt und eindringlich, wie der Druck Hollywoods, dünn zu sein, in Kombination mit ihrer geheim gehaltenen Homosexualität dazu führte, dass sie sich in ihrer Haut nie wohlfühlte und immer tiefer in die Magersucht hineinrutschte. Das Abnehmen wurde für sie zur einzigen Möglichkeit, Macht und Kontrolle über ihr Leben zu haben, bis es zu einer Krankheit wurde, die sie beinahe tötete und ihre Familie zerstörte. In ungewöhnlich offenen, mutigen Worten erzählt de Rossi mit erzählerischem Feingefühl ihre Geschichte und lässt uns tief in ihre Seele und ihr Leben als Hollywoodstar blicken. Sie lässt uns die verquere Logik ihres täglichen Strebens nach Perfektion verstehen und die Anstrengung wertschätzen, die sie zur Überwindung ihrer Probleme aufwenden musste. Eine erschreckende und zugleich hoffnungsvolle Geschichte für alle, die auf Kriegsfuß mit sich selbst oder ihrem Körper stehen.
