I've seen this book in my T's office but have not read it before. I'm glad it has helped you!
i believe it is very true about weight being a distraction and food used as a way to act that out. If food is love it makes sense for me - or if food is safety - because I know I reject food when it is likely I need love the most.
i wish you luck in your ED journey. I've been battling an grab bag of anorexia w/ bulimia as well.
