Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0345396499, Paperback)

Fat and Furious is a real first...It presents mother-daughter and woman-to-woman issues which have never before been described in terms of eating disorders. Hollis draws unique parallels between negative eating habits and universal conflicts that all women face."
--Aphrodite Matsakis, Ph.D.
Author of Compulsive Eaters and Relationships
Dr. Judi Hollis, founder of the nation's first eating disorders hospital unit, reports that in twenty years of clinical practice, she has never met a starving or binging person who wasn't raging within. Why? What is the link between unexpressed anger and food obsession?
In Fat and Furious, Dr. Hollis traces the rage back to the "mother-daughter wound" where, at the root of all disordered eating, is one painful truth--our mothers passed on lies about their own pain, making healthy separation for their daughters impossible. And when daughters cannot claim their lives, they try to sedate, control, and suppress themselves--with food.
Dr. Hollis cautions that facing the mother-daughter wound does not mean blaming your mother. The challenge is to fearlessly confront the ways in which we are repeating the dynamics of the mother-daughter relationship in our lives today.
Fat and Furious is not an answer book. It is a book that will teach you how to ask probing questions--the first step to self-healing. With the wisdom and guidance in Fat and Furious, you will begin to hear and trust your own inner voice--and you will never be hungry again.
