Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Overall this book provides an interesting insight into the psychology of eating and should be a useful resource for those who work in the field of nutrition and dietetics, particularly those who work in weight loss, obesity treatment or the treatment of eating disorders. It should also be a useful read for anyone who wants to understand more about why we eat what we eat, and why many have eating habits/behaviours that may not always be good for their health.” (Nutrition Bulletin, June 2010)

What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
"Jane Ogden, a long-time, well-regarded contributor to this field herself, has managed successfully to bring together the principal issues and domains concerning the interrelated areas of dieting, obesity, body image, and eating disorders. For researchers, practitioners, and those simply interested in understanding the complexities of eating and related issues, this book provides a valuable resource."
Professor Janet Polivy, University of Toronto at Mississauga, Canada

"Eating can be a source of delight or an opportunity for poor psychological and physical health. In this book Jane Ogden gives a scholarly and yet digestible overview of the psychological underpinnings of this important area."
Janet Treasure, King's College London
