In The Eating Disorder Trap, Robyn L. Goldberg, RDN, CEDRD-S, offers a clear and comprehensive picture of how eating disorders emerge and the challenges in treating them. Her book is accessible to general readers and full of insights for professional behavioral health veterans. One of the book’s important messages is the need to push back against weight shaming and rethink our demonization of fat. I recommend this book as a starting point and framework for thinking about how dietitians such as myself can develop a better means for meeting the nutritional needs of people in recovery from all types of eating disorders.
