Getting Better Bite by Bite is an essential, authoritative and evidence-based self-help programme that has been used by bulimia sufferers for over 20 years. This new edition maintains the essence of the original book, while updating its content for today’s readers, drawing on the latest knowledge of the biology and psychology of bulimia and its treatment.

The book provides step-by-step guidance for change based on solid research. The use of everyday language, stimulating contemporary case study story-telling and evocative illustrations in Bite by Bite provide encouragement, hope and new perspectives for all readers.

This handy-sized book fills a need for easy-to-understand information about bulimia nervosa, a serious and prevalent eating disorder. Ulrike Schmidt and Janet Treasure are world-renowned researchers and authorities on eating disorders, and June Alexander, a former sufferer of anorexia and bulimia, is a respected writer and internationally-known eating disorder awareness advocate. Getting Better Bite by Bite is a valuable resource – for sufferers, for their families, and for the health professionals and carers treating them.

'Getting Better Bite by Bite is a beautiful illustrated step-by-step guide for eating disorders recovery. Through rich storytelling and concrete practical exercises reflecting decades of collective clinical experience, this book accompanies the reader across the stepping stones to recovery. Warmth, compassion, and deep understanding flow from every page integrating perspectives of two of the most respected eating disorder clinicians in the world and a survivor/advocate. This guide avoids jargon and provides solid advice for anyone with an eating disorder. A rich resource for every library and a comforting companion for anyone contemplating recovery.' - Cynthia Bulik, PhD, FAED, Professor, author of Midlife Eating Disorders and Binge Control
