Summary

Praise for the previous edition:

"...accurate, concise information concerning eating behaviors in a user-friendly format...Certainly topical, this encyclopedia will be most welcome in both the young adult and adult departments of public libraries of any size, community college libraries and undergraduate libraries, and high-school libraries."—Booklist

"The entries, clearly written and easily understood, will help readers find more information...An important addition to most public, special, and academic libraries."—Choice

The Encyclopedia of Obesity and Eating Disorders, Fourth Edition is more relevant now than ever before. Presently almost two-thirds of American adults are overweight and 31 percent are obese. Eating disorders are now affecting a wider range of the population, particularly with increased diagnoses in men and boys, and a range of diet crazes has swept the country with potentially long-lasting ramifications for health and nutrition. Made up of 80 detailed articles and an extensive glossary, this reference is the first stop in any serious research of these troubling health afflictions.

Entries include:

  • Anorexia nervosa
  • Body image disturbance
  • Bulimia nervosa
  • Childhood obesity
  • Exercise and obesity and eating disorders
  • Hunger and appetite
  • Males and eating disorders
  • Nutritional counseling for eating disorders and obesity
  • Pharmacotherapy for eating disorders and obesity
  • Screening tests for eating disorders
  • Stress and eating disorders
  • Weight loss scams and frauds.
