Eight million women in the United States suffer from anorexia nervosa and/or bulimia. For these women, the road to recovery is a rocky one. Many succumb to their eating disorders. Life Without Ed offers hope to all those who suffer from these often deadly disorders. For years, author Jennifer Schaefer lived with both anorexia and bulimia. She credits her successful recovery to the technique she learned from her psychologist, Thom Rutledge.
.

This groundbreaking book illustrates Rutledge's technique. As in the author's case, readers are encouraged to think of an eating disorder as if it were a distinct being with a personality of its own. Further, they are encouraged to treat the disorder as a relationship rather than as a condition. Schaefer named her eating disorder Ed; her recovery involved "breaking up" with Ed
.

* . Shares the points of view of both patient and therapist in this approach to treatment .
* Helps people see the disease as a relationship from which they can distance themselves .
* Techniques to defeat negative thoughts that plague eating disorder patients .

.

Prescriptive, supportive, and inspirational, Life Without Ed shows readers how they too can overcome their eating disorders.
