About This Book
Your Dieting Daughter is a must-read for anyone wanting to help contribute to a young womanʼs development of a healthy self- and body esteem, whether she is 13 or 30.

From aiding a young girl to lose weight for health reasons; to encouraging a young woman to accept her natural body size; to helping detect, prevent, and understand eating disorders, this second edition is full of practical and invaluable information.
