Dieting Increases the Risk of Obesity and Eating Disorders

Norton: 8 Keys to Recovery from Eating Disorders - Book Release


Your Dieting Daughter, Second Edition
Carolyn Costin, Spring, 2013

"Carolyn Costin has given us a welcome and timely update in her new verion of Your Dieting Daughter, given that girls are beginning to diet at younger and younger ages and that there is a great confusion about dieting and the 'obesity crisis.' In a lively and engaging style, and with wisdom gained from personal experience and years in the field, Carolyn Costin illuminates the issues and offers practical, compassionate, and useful advice for parents and all caregivers."

Jean Kilbourne, EdD, creator of the Killing Us Softly: Advertising Image of Women film series and author of Can't Buy Me Love: How Advertising Changes the Way We Think and Feel
