In Hunger Pains Dr. Mary Pipher offers advice, counsel, and practical solutions for young women dealing with eating disorders and other problems. The rates of anorexia, bulimia, and depression for women are the highest they have ever been; signs show that the age of women susceptible to these problems is decreasing as the problem increases. Dr. Pipher reveals how society encourages our misery and prevents us from accepting our looks. Indeed, for many women, the humiliation of being overweight is a wound that never heals. Pipher reminds us that accepting our bodies the way they are is the greatest gift we can give ourselves.
