In our recent Summer bookworm episode I shared my absolute love for the book I'll be talking about in today's episode: Eating in the Light of the Moon: How Women Can Transform Their Relationship with Food Through Myths, Metaphors, and Storytelling by Dr. Anita Johnston. It has been a go-to resource in the field of eating disorder recovery since its original publication in 1996, and I found it so eye opening, helpful and healing that I felt I had to give it special attention in the podcast and tell you a bit about what you can find within its pages.

I can't recommend this book enough for anyone who has or is struggling with an eating disorder, for parents, siblings or partners of people with eating disorders, or for anyone who like me, has struggled with eating, chronic dieting and disordered eating even when not fulfilling the criteria for a diagnosis. Through stories and metaphors Anita guides us to the deeply rooted issues associated with our relationship to food, our grasping of disordered habits as a defence mechanism, and how the same folk tales that have been passed down from generation to generation can be used as tools to understand disordered eating and move towards a better relationship with food.
