    Understanding Eating Disorders offers an in-depth look at current eating disorder research. The text combines selected readings and original essays to explain how eating disorders develop and clarifies the different types of diagnosable eating disorders.

    In addition, the anthology addresses specific cases such as pregnancy and eating disorders, diabetes and bulimia, and orthorexia. The book also discusses nutritional and clinical treatments for eating disorders, and research on different forms of prevention.

    Specific topics include body image and culture, comorbidity, health at every size, eating disorders in men, and intuitive eating.

    Understanding Eating Disorders is a highly effective supplement to lecture materials on eating disorders. The book can be used in courses on eating disorders, the psychology of food and eating, and critical gender studies.
