Product description

Product Description

Can you begin to imagine the anguish and shame of being morbidly obese?

"I can’t go out with my daughter. It's like walking around with an elephant. People stare daggers and wonder how I let it happen!" Honestly, who has not looked at obese people with feelings of disgust, anger, and maybe even aggression?

Discover what lies behind the daunting angst of morbid obesity

No one chooses to be fat. Many morbidly obese adults and children would willingly give a hand or foot to reduce their body size. Yet they continue to devour endlessly. What is behind this insatiable hunger? Readers will be stunned by chilling, real-life stories of unhappy family relations, violent divorce, injury, and life-changing loss, all intertwined with the unremitting struggle to fit into the right size. This is a rare document that reveals a different perspective on the urge to eat oneself to death. It is also a valuable tool for practitioners and is included in many Israeli academic institutions as compulsory reading in the study of eating disorders.
