Synopsis: Discusses the relationship between health and diet and examines a variety of commercial weight-loss programs and the health risks that they pose to their members.

From School Library Journal: Grade 6 Up-Two timely treatments of topics relating to teenagers' obsession with body image and weight. Eating Disorder Survivors includes narrative accounts from four teenagers who overcame compulsive eating, anorexia, and bulimia. Each one relates his or her experience with developing an eating disorder and recounts the steps taken to achieve recovery. All of them stress the importance of seeking professional help. The stories are detailed enough to be interesting but none are sensationalized. The emphasis is on the hope of recovery. Weight-Loss Programs discusses the relationship between health and diet and examines a variety of commercial weight-loss programs and the health risks that they pose. The hidden costs, emotional pressure, and influence of persuasive advertising are addressed, as is basic information on why diets don't work. Tips on "rebelling against the diet culture" are included, along with suggestions for having a healthy lifestyle. Both books are clearly written and illustrated with full-color photographs of ordinary-looking teen models. Both take a positive approach to a potentially dangerous subject. Those needing additional titles in these areas might look at Steven Levenkron's The Best Little Girl in the World (Warner, 1989) or Chelsea Smith's Diary of an Eating Disorder (Taylor, 1998) for more fully developed narrative accounts.
