ThisMoreFeeding Your Anorexic Adolescent is an action plan for parents of children suffering from anorexia. It is an efficient resource for parents who are desperate to know what to do right now, at this meal, at the next meal, and then again tomorrow. This book provides in an in dept explanation of the physiological and psychological effects of the starvation associated with anorexia nervosa. It summarizes the science behind the enormous nutrient needs during recovery. It also discusses possible family eating patterns that may be counterproductive to recovery. Importantly, Feeding Your Anorexic Adolescent is the only book which outlines in a systematic way how to establish normal eating patterns once weight has been restored. The second section of the book provides parents with calorie-rich recipes, divided into meal categories so parents can plan efficiently and with minimum stress. In a world of concern about obesity, parents struggle to find recipes and ideas which will help their child restore weight. The book has the endorsement of leading figures in the field of adolescent eating disorders: Dr. James Lock of Stanford University, author of the best-selling book Help Your Teenager Beat an Eating Disorder, and Laura Collins, author of Eating with Your Anorexia.
