Overview

Regaining Your Self: Understanding and Conquering the Eating Disorder Identity by Ira Sacker

Do YOU WANT TO GET BETTER, but are afraid to let go of your eating disorder? After all, your eating disorder has defined who you are, has been a constant in your life, and has helped you cope and navigate your own world. To leave it behind would mean you wouldn't know who you are, how to act, or where to begin. Right? Wrong. According to renowned eating disorder specialist and bestselling author Ira M. Sacker, M.D., thoughts like these are due to something he calls the Eating Disorder Identity, which is a major road block in preventing you from getting better. In Regaining Your Self, Dr. Sacker introduces and defines this concept for you, explaining that in order to move away from the Eating Disorder Identity, you must transition to a new identity— the true self you were meant to be. The journey of finding out who you really are without your eating disorder begins here. Regaining Your Self offers you hope as well as hope to individuals, loved ones, and treatment professionals who are working toward freedom from the power of the eating disorders.
