Summary Most patients who develop the eating disorders are frightened of gaining weight. The disordered eating can be viewed as a pathological reaction to this fear and a distorted attempt to establish control of body weight. This book focuses on the place of drugs in the treatment of both sets of illnesses. It addresses the science of eating behavior.
