Runaway Eating

The 8-Point Plan To Conquer Adult Food and Weight Obsessions

By Cynthia M. Bulik ’82 and Nadine Taylor (Rodale)


The authors discuss eating problems developed by women in midlife, who may be stessed out by a busy workload, menopause, empty nest syndrome or caring for older parents, or who may be depressed over society’s emphasis on the beauty of youth.

Bulik, a clinical psychologist who specializes in eating disorders, and Taylor, a registered dietician, present ways to change destructive eating patterns. This is not a diet book; the authors instead offer strategies on how women can re-establish healthy eating patterns.
