The 10th Anniversary Edition of the book that has given hope and inspiration to thousands who are dealing with eating disorders "If you or someone you love has an eating disorder, this is the book to read." —Dr. Phil Jenni had been in an abusive relationship with Ed for far too long. He controlled Jenni’s life, distorted her self-image, and tried to physically harm her throughout their long affair. Then, in therapy, Jenni learned to treat her eating disorder as a relationship, not a condition. By thinking of her eating disorder as a unique personality separate from her own, Jenni was able to break up with Ed once and for all. Inspiring, compassionate, and filled with practical exercises to help you break up with your own personal E.D., Life Without Ed provides hope to the millions of people plagued by eating disorders. Beginning with Jenni’s “divorce” from Ed, this supportive, lifesaving book combines a patient’s insights and experiences with a therapist’s prescriptions for success to help you live a healthier, happier life without Ed. This 10th anniversary edition features a new afterword as well as sections devoted to family, friends, and supporters; how treatment professionals can use the book with their patients; and men with eating disorders. "Of all the great books written on eating disorders, none has had a wider reach than Life Without Ed. Those suffering have found connection and hope, family members have found understanding and empathy, professionals have learned from it and praised it. It will remain a classic for decades to come." —Michael E. Berrett, PhD, psychologist; CEO and cofounder of the Center for Change; coauthor of Spiritual Approaches in the Treatment of Women with Eating Disorders "[Life Without Ed] was the first [book] to teach readers that they can not only separate from their eating disorder, but also disagree with and disobey it. I wholeheartedly recommend this witty, hopeful guide to patients, carers, professionals, and anyone else who wants to understand what it's really like to live with an eating disorder and ultimately triumph over it." —Jennifer J. Thomas, PhD, assistant professor of psychology at the Harvard Medical School; co-director of the Eating Disorders Clinical and Research Program at Massachusetts General Hospital "This uplifting book’s intimate inner dialogue has energized countless young women—and men—in their own recoveries from eating disorders." —Leigh Cohn, MAT, CEDS, coauthor of Making Weight: Men’s Conflicts with Food, Weight, Shape & Recovery "Jenni is truly a remarkable woman. She unselfishly shares her struggles and triumphs in something that will probably affect all of us in one way or another in our lifetime. Her candid and inspiring story will truly help those suffering from their own "Ed." I feel privileged to know her and her story." —Jamie-Lynn Sigler, actress

In 2000, Peach Friedman, a college senior freshly broken up from her boyfriend, set out to beat the blues by beating herself into shape. Running ten miles a day and taking in as little as 800 calories, she fell from 146 pounds to 100 in three months and was at serious risk of cardiac arrest. What Friedman suffered from was exercise bulimia—a newly diagnosed and rapidly spreading eating disorder that affects some 400,000 American women, and which gyms and colleges across America are beginning to take seriously. In Diary of an Exercise Addict Friedman recounts her descent into a life-threatening illness, her remarkable recovery, and the setbacks along the way. With refreshing candor she lays bare her relationships with family, friends, and lovers and the repressed desire that finally surfaced as she found her own way back to health.

From hurting to healing . . . resistance to recovery . . . struggle to strength . . . This can be your story When your parents, friends, or partner tell you what you should or should not do to "get better," do you think, "They just don't get it"? Melissa Groman gets it. As a therapist, she has spent twenty-five years helping young women who binge, starve, and physically harm themselves to heal and recover. In Better Is Not So Far Away, she combines her experience, wisdom, and compassion to help you see beyond your behavior, discover who you really are, and decide to change your life. You might know that obsession, disordered eating, and self-harm won't ultimately make you feel better--but you haven't been able to stop. Bridging the gap between what you feel and what you do, Groman explores raw emotional pain with a deep knowledge of the human psyche, including stories of those who have suffered, faced, and conquered self-destructive urges. "A life well-lived means more than just a lessening of symptoms," Groman writes. "It means a true shift in how you think and how you tend to your own feelings and the feelings of others." Dealing with family, friendships, emotions, and life itself--as well as food and body issues--can be complex and can get in the way of even wanting to recover. When you clear away some of the emotional obstacles, it's easier to take practical steps to genuine relief and healing. This book will help you do just that. It can be the first or next right step toward facing your greatest hurts and challenges in a practical, profoundly honest, and self-caring way. A healthy, happy life may seem impossible now--but, truly, it is not so far away.

Michelle E. Minero, MFT, has redefined diet as "regularly offering yourself love." How would your life be different if you loved yourself and your body? Find out through the 7 paths of the Self-Love Diet. You will explore your spirituality, your relationship with your body, your thoughts and feelings, as well as your relationship with yourself, others, your culture and your world. Develop a daily self-love practice, the only diet that works. Testimonial by Anita Johnston, PhD Rather than promoting the deprivation that is typical of modern day diet mentality, Michelle Minero graciously invites us to imagine how our lives and our world might be different if, instead, we fed ourselves a consistent diet of loving thoughts and kind behaviors. She offers up surprisingly easy-to-follow, practical steps for doing so, skillfully demonstrating how following the path of self-love can lead to freedom from body hatred and eating difficulties. This book is a gift for anyone struggling with eating, weight, and negative body image! -Anita Johnston, PhD Author, Eating in the Light of the Moon Testimonial by Pamela Carlton, MD This book is a must read. It is especially helpful for anyone with an eating disorder or chronic dieting and the people who love them. What a wonderful world it would be if women loved and accepted themselves and their bodies unconditionally. Michelle Minero helps the reader along that path. She helps us to see the ways that our society and we ourselves perpetuate self-criticism. She then presents ways in which we can change that critical self-talk into self-love. At the end of each chapter Michelle Minero gives practical action points that help the reader incorporate the key concepts into their life. I will definitely be recommending Self-Love Diet: The Only Diet That Works to my patients and their families. -Pamela Carlton, MD Director, The Carlton Clinic for Eating-Related Disorders Author, Take Charge of Your Child's Eating Disorder Testimonial by Bernie Siegel, MD When we grow up experiencing indifference, rejection and abuse, we make choices which are addictive and self-destructive. When self-love enters your life through changes brought on by the wisdom contained in this book, you will be reparented and reborn into a healthy life and diet of self-love. -Bernie Siegel, MD Author of A Book of Miracles and 101 Exercises For The Soul Testimonial by Ovidio Bermudez, MD This book presents in a creative and accessible style a basic premise of self-help and wellbeing: self-love. Michelle Minero has been able to encapsulate and present in an easy to understand practice and put into action this difficult to grasp and even more difficult to internalize principle. Self-Love Doet: The Only Diet That Works will help many with eating disorders, and I recommend it to every clinician working with individuals strugging with self-acceptance. Kudos to Michelle for putting forth this valuable tool. -Ovidio Bermudez, MD Medical Director, Eating Recovery Center, Adolescent Services Denver, Colorado Testimonial by Jenni Schaefer Michelle Minero is all about hope. And her book, Self-Love Diet: The Only Diet That Works, is too. You are sure to be inspired! -Jenni Schaefer Author of Life Without ED and Goodbye Ed, Hello Me.

For aspiring cricketer Ed Smith, luck was for other people. Ed believed that the successful cricketer made his own luck by an application of will power, elimination of error, and the relentless pursuit of excellence. But when a freak accident at the crease at Lords prematurely ended Ed Smith's international cricketing career, it changed everything - and prompted him to look anew at his own life through the prism of luck. Tracing the history of the concepts of luck and fortune, destiny and fate, from the ancient Greeks to the present day - in religion, in banking, in politics - Ed Smith argues that the question of luck versus skill is as pertinent today as it ever has been. He challenges us to think again about privilege and opportunity, to re-examine the question of innate ability and of gifts and talents accidentally conferred at birth. Weaving in his personal stories - notably the chance meeting of a beautiful stranger who would become his wife on a train he seemed fated to miss - he puts to us the idea that in life, luck cannot be underestimated: without any means of explaining our differing lots in life, the world without luck is one in which you deserve every ill that befalls you, where envy dominates and averageness is the stifling ideal. Embracing luck leads us to a fresh reappraisal of the nature of success, opportunity and fairness.
