Description :  The book primarily deals with the description of the various facts and factors of eating disorders. Though seemingly non serious, eating disorders are alarmingly common and often have disastrous consequences. Various factors, including biological, social, and psychological; play an important role in both the cause and the progress of these disorders. The interrelation between these factors can be helpful in better explaining the problem of the incidence of a particular eating disorder, its manifestation, progression and outcome. This text encompasses various researches related to the basic concepts of eating disorders, including both general topics and various methods of treatment. Factors responsible for the generation of eating disorders, the role played by psychosocial aspects, as well as the role of biological agents, clinical and therapeutic issues and epidemiology of these disorders have been focused in this text. The need for nutritional assessment and nutritional treatment has also been presented by contributing experts in this book. Professionals such as psychologists, nurses, doctors, and nutritionists should find this book a worthy read for a better understanding of eating disorders.
