Overview

After achieving a level of recovery from an eating disorder, it is vital to ensure the right practical and emotional supports are in place to maintain that recovery indefinitely. In this important book, Naomi Feigenbaum confronts the often neglected subject of how to take the essential steps towards a healthy and happy life after recovering from an eating disorder.

This inspirational companion offers a wide range of healthy coping skills that are supported by expert advice from treatment professionals.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Focusing on how to stay healthy after the initial recovery from an eating disorder, this book is aimed at anyone coping with daily life after concluding in- or outpatient treatment. Feigenbaum (One Life: Hope, Healing and Inspiration on the Path to Recovery from Eating Disorders) offers sensible advice and gives specific recommendations, e.g., keep a journal and find a reputable nutritionist. Pursuing a master's degree in counseling at Florida Atlantic University, the author occasionally sounds like she's writing a college paper. The case histories of a half-dozen women in their teens and twenties as well as a man in his thirties help illustrate the various causes of eating disorders, recovery, and possible setbacks. Feigenbaum, who recounts her own struggles, also quotes therapists and eating disorder specialists and recommends several treatment centers. Although her writing style is not elegant, her sincerity is apparent, and she carefully avoids mentioning any specific self-injurious behaviors, calling them symptoms of unhealthy behavior. VERDICT Anyone trying to stay on a healthful track after completing treatment for eating disorders can find helpful words of advice here.—Martha Stone, Treadwell Lib., Boston
