In recent years, we have seen a tremendous increase in the number of people involved in exercise activity- and also a steady increase of individuals with eating disorders. Is there a common psychological and/or physiological link between these two activities? Are they different but related symptoms of a society in which success or happiness has been redefined as getting in shape and controlling calories? This groundbreaking volume provides the first in-depth study of the linkages between these two apparently disparate conditions. It focuses on the many similarities between eating disordered individuals and compulsive athletes and advances the provocative theory that both are part of the larger category- the activity disorder.

Eating disorders, addictions, and substance use disorders are each challenging in their own right, but they also commonly co-occur, causing major challenges for clinicians. This book presents cutting-edge research on the overlap of these complex disorders and reviews integrative assessment strategies and treatment approaches, including enhanced cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, abstinence approaches, motivational enhancement, mindfulness meditation, and pharmacotherapy. The issue of whether eating-disordered behaviors such as dieting, binge eating, and excessive exercise are merely other forms of addictive behavior is examined. The authors argue both for and against the concept of food addiction in research, clinical treatment, and public policy. The book will be of interest to psychiatrists, addiction medicine physicians, mental health/substance abuse clinicians, dieticians, researchers, and those affected by the disorders.
