A panel of internationally recognized eating disorder experts has expanded and fully updated this widely acclaimed book to reflect recent scientific and therapeutic developments. Stressing human physiology, treatment, and disease prevention, the authors take advantage of the new molecular understanding of the biological regulation of energy. Updated chapters review specific evidence-based and future treatment modalities, present an objective evaluation of the treatment, and identify the positives and negatives that have been seen during clinical studies, as well as cumulative data derived from clinical practice. New chapters include material on the use of the internet in the education and treatment of eating disorders and obesity, and on the role of appetite and satiety in obesity treatment, particularly with regard to the carbohydrate diet.

Weight Problems and Eating Disorders - General Practice: The Integrative Approach. This chapter discusses anorexia and bulimia-like disorders. These eating disorders are characterised by the use of inappropriate behaviours to control body weight and feelings, as evidenced by low body weight, high body weight, extreme weight-control behaviours such as vomiting and starvation, excessive exercise and binge eating. Obesity - General Practice: The Integrative Approach. General Practitioners in primary care are uniquely placed to help in the management of patients in all stages of overweight and obesity, and are able to maintain a therapeutic relationship with patients over many years. General practitioners should take a long-term view of weight problems, which can mean avoiding goals for weight management that are unlikely to be achieved.

This book presents a collection of writings by expert researchers from Canada, the United States, and Australia who are committed to finding common cause and common ground in the prevention of eating disorders and obesity. The ten chapters in this book seek to create a new public health approach to the prevention of weight-related disorders, one that counters the confusion and frustration from public policies, messages, and programs that recipients of prevention efforts often experience. The first section looks at prevention from a public health perspective, and the second section highlights theories from risk and resilience research that can inform the prevention of weight-related disorders. The contributions are varied in their theories and models, but woven throughout is the theme of collaboration in changing public institutions and social systems that promotes universal prevention and fosters mental health and resilience. Unique methods of linking systems and fostering partnerships across sectors and disciplines are highlighted, and readers are exposed to innovative ideas of how to move the field of prevention science forward to reduce the onset of negative body image, unhealthy weight management, eating disorders, and disordered eating. Preventing Eating-Related and Weight-Related Disorders is the second in a series of titles from The Community Health Systems Resource Group at The Hospital for Sick Children. This series will educate researchers, policy-makers, students, practitioners, and interested stakeholders on such topics as early intervention in psychosis, aggressive behaviour problems, eating-related disorders, and marginalized youth in educational contexts.
