    1. I won a copy of Does Every Woman Have an Eating Disorder? by Dr. Rosenfeld on . Dr. Rosenfeld's book is exceptionally well-researched and well-written. Her cultural analysis of the media's influence on female body dissatisfaction, dieting, and feelings of self-worth is fantastic. The question that Dr. Rosenfeld researched (Does Every Woman Have an Eating Disorder?) is one that I have often contemplated myself. Despite, that many of us women do not meet the diagnostic criteria for disordered eati [...]

    2. I received this book through LibraryThing's Early Reviewers. The author, Stacey M. Rosenfeld is a clinical psychologist who specializes in eating disorders and body issues. In the book, Rosenfeld posits that even though every woman may not have a clinically defined eating disorder, most women nonetheless have a disordered relationship with food that falls on the eating disorder spectrum because of certain habits like restriction and food rules. The book is organized so that the first two chapter [...]

    3. As body image/weight is something that I read a lot on, I wasn't sure how much I'd get out of this book, though of course the title and topic fascinated me. As it turned out, there was a lot in the book I wasn't aware of, or hadn't thought about, even if indeed some of it was a repeat. For women just starting on a journey of loving their bodies, I would highly recommend it. The author is a therapist who works on body image with clients, and there was so much interesting and refreshing informatio [...]

    4. This enlightening book is not just for those with eating issues—it’s for any woman who feels pressured by society to be a certain shape or size. Dr. Rosenfeld talks about why diets don’t work (really… they don’t, and scientists know this); how our everyday vocabulary hurts our self-esteem, starting in childhood (mamas, teachers, and leaders of youth take note—there’s advice here on how to model a positive body image for young girls); and how to cultivate a resistance to media messa [...]

    5. Rosenfeld is a clinical psychologist who specializes in helping those with eating disorders and body image concerns. She explores different angles of our culture that cause girls and women to have negative or unhealthy ideas about their bodies. To me, the most interesting chapter was "Fat Isn't the Problem," where she shows that our common ideas about fat are a social construct and not supported by scientific fact to the degree that we've all been led to believe. In the final chapter the author [...]

    6. *GoodReads Giveaway*I thought that this book was very informative. I, myself, have struggled with weight, but not so much as losing it, more so gaining. But I have to admit I still do some of the stuff that is discussed in this. I feel like it is important for people to read things like this because there can be a lot of misinformation. I felt like this book did a really good job covering all the bases. I would recommend this book to all women because it is something that just needs to be read.
