Best Eating Disorder Books
It's alarming when you hear the stat that more than 24 million Americans are living with eating disorders — so when National Eating Disorders Awareness Week comes around, it's important to reach as many people as possible in as many ways as possible. I'm one of the many living in recovering from an ED, and in my own personal journey, one of the things that's helped me most is books. I'm hoping that sharing this list of 10 titles that hit so many different notes about what it's like to live with and recover from an ED will help those struggling — and those who just want to understand, too. OK, turning to books during NEDA might not seem like the obvious answer, but there's so much to learn from others' stories. Reading what others have lived through can give everyone with tools they need on the path to recovery, as well as help others understand what people with EDs experience. It seems like we all know someone who has been affected — and as someone who has been through it, I know that being able to relate to others' experiences made me want to take the steps to work towards recovery when I was in denial. So, in the spirit of the "awareness" part of NEDA, share this list, and pass it on to anyone you think it might help.

Don't miss out
One day when I was in high school, I started a diet. I was too hungry to read, to do homework, to watch TV; I tried to fall asleep. Over months I became accustomed to a level of hunger that until that point had been unimaginable to me. I still ate, because my family would have noticed if I stopped altogether, but not much: a small bowl of dry Cheerios in the morning, a no-fat Yoplait whipped yogurt at lunch, the smallest portion I could manage of whatever my mother had made for dinner. I thought that about calories a day was appropriate.
