Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Recovered and fat? To most people considering the process of recovering from an eating disorder, this might sound frightening. Fatness is viewed as such a deviation in our society that coupling it with the word "recovery" seems like a contradiction. Even professionals in the field, who should know better, slump back into the assumption that if a person is fat, she or he must be eating disordered and troubled. (From: "To Be Recovered and Fat" by Marcia Germaine Hutchinson)

Review:

A satisfying anthology of interviews and writings on eating disorders, with a delicious twist: the book is structured as a dinner party, with the 16 contributing writers as guests. Featuring some of the best known authors and speakers on anorexia nervosa, bulimia, body image and food obsessions, Full Lives includes new work by Rebecca Ruggles Radcliffe, founder of Eating Awareness Services and Education (EASE); Carol Munter and Jane Hirschmann, pioneers of the anti-diet movement; Caroline Adams Miller, author of the bestselling book on bulimia, My Name is Caroline; and others. This is not a guide to overcoming eating disorders, although many of the writers have authored such practical how-to books. Instead, this is a conversation about the lives of these remarkable women, describing the personal growth and satisfaction that recovery from eating disorders has bought them. For women struggling with the secret of an eating disorder, this book offers a vision of the rewards of recovery. -- From The WomanSource Catalog & Review: Tools for Connecting the Community for Women; review by Patricia Pettijohn
