Lisa Bevere - You Are Not What You Weigh
I was looking for a 'how-to' going beyond her previous work and didn't really find it. Bevere's focus in this book appears to be the way that the media has led so many women (and presumably also men) to form an idol out of their appearance and, especially, their weight. She does recount her own journey through overweight, anorexia and bulimia and speaks strongly in favour of fasting (if not from food then from something).
