Media images of ideal bodiesOCowhich, in reality, are often dangerously thinOComake it easy for people to start worrying about their own body shapes and compare themselves to these model ideals. For some people, this concern with thinness becomes an obsession, and they fall victim to eating disorders.

This new edition of Nutrition and Eating Disorders examines some of the most common eating disorders, from anorexia nervosa to binge eating."
