Eating Disorders by Viqi Wagner, book editor- “When does ‘normal’
dieting, or ‘normal’ overeating, stop being normal and cross the line into an eating disorder? It is important to recognize that many, many people suffer from conflicted relationships with their eating. However, there are degrees of suffering and degrees of danger to health, with clinically diagnosable eating disorders inflicting the most of each.” -Terese Katz, “Women, Food, and Eating Disorders”
This book is one volume of the highly acclaimed opposing viewpoints series.
Those who do not know their opponent’s arguments do not
completely understand their own.

Breath: yoga for teens by Mary Kaye Chryssicas
(includes DVD)-
“In high school, I was your typical teen: energetic, overbooked, boy crazy, and anxious. On top of that, I was self conscious about my weight, preoccupied with friendships, worried about grades… I was the perfect candidate for yoga… I could feel the way yoga made my body and mind stronger than they ever were. I loved that I wasn’t expected to compete. I could do yoga and feel confident and calm.
The kids in my classes use their yoga practice to chill out and get in tune with their bodies. Their patience grows, their posture improves, their confidence shines…” Mary Kaye Chryssicas
