Despite progress in economic and social areas, many women often still feel oppressed by their own self-image and "weight problems." This dialogue offers a refreshing alternative to the vicious circle of dieting and weight gain--a way to deal with poor body image that reaches to its core issues. These psychotherapists who specialize in eating disorders have developed a new view: "What we're talking about is giving up diets, and starting to eat in a way that is going to cure your compulsive eating," says Munter. "... If you cure the compulsive eating, you get to a point where you can think about your problems and anxieties rather than eat about them." (hosted by Justine Willis Toms)
