Say the name Nikki Grahame and most people will remember the bubbly, highly strung, and hugely entertaining Big Brother 7 contestant, famous for her diary room outbursts. Since leaving the Big Brother house, she had forged a successful career for herself in presenting and writing. Yet Nikki isn’t just another reality television contestant and her life story is not like any other you will ever read. From the age of eight until she was 19, Nikki battled anorexia nervosa—but few cases have been quite as extreme as hers. What she has been through while suffering from this illness will surprise and shock readers. At just seven years old, Nikki began feeling that she was overweight. A remark about her being fat from a fellow pupil at a gymnastics class, along with insecurity brought about by her parents’ separation and her beloved grandfather’s death, were the catalysts for Nikki’s long-term eating disorder. Aged just eight and weighing just under three stone, she was diagnosed as anorexic. For the next eight years, Nikki was in and out of seven institutions, during which time she attempted suicide twice and had to be sedated up to four times a day so that she could be force-fed. At one point, she was sedated for 14 days while doctors sewed a tube into her stomach, through which she was fed in order to get her weight out of the critical range. Nikki admits that she knew every anorexic’s trick in the book: from breaking into hospital kitchens to water down full-fat milk, altering her diet sheet and switching name tags on food to ensure that she received smaller amounts, to even stuffing a door-stop down her trousers before a weigh-in. The extremes that she went to in order to avoid eating and find ways to exercise excessively shocked doctors who have worked in the field for years. As Nikki says, "I’ve always wanted to be the best at everything I do, so I had to be the best anorexic—and I was." This is the heart-rending and powerful story of a girl who lost her childhood but was brave enough to finally admit that she wanted to live again. With searing honesty, Nikki recounts her long and painful road to recovery, how she has had to come to terms with the long-term ramifications of her illness, how she coped with being in the Big Brother house and how she uses her new-found fame to promote awareness of eating disorders and to help those who are suffering from similar problems. This compelling book tells the story of an incredible journey.

"Your Dieting Daughter is written for mothers who have daughters suffering from an eating disorder or disorders. It also serves as a reference for doctors, therapists, nutritionists, and eating disorder centers, and is an appropriate book for the same audience to recommend to clients. In the first edition, Dr. Costin, a well-respected therapist in the field, gave sound and practical advice for mothers to help them communicate with and understand their daughters as they go through the ordeal of eating disorders. There were letters, anecdotes, and diet plans along with recipes included, and readers enjoyed the unique focus of the mother/daughter relationship that the book stayed true to. This second edition contains addition information on cultural issues, newer studies (such as DBT, Mindfulness, and Maudsley techniques), and medication. On the clinical front, the focus has also been broadened to include more information on issues of body image, weight concerns, and dieting in the general population, making this an indispensible guide for knowledge, as well as emotional reconnection and healing.

They always ask, why? They ponder because they can't fathom doing what we do to ourselves--we are, quite literally, dying to be thin--they don't understand the illness because they don't understand the pain. Joanne's memoir tells the story of one woman's struggle with anorexia and bulimia, depression, and other mental illnesses. It steps into her disordered mind and shows what life is like inside a toxic household, the stigma many patients continue to face, in and out of treatment, and the harsh reality of an eating disorder. Once you tell them, they suddenly don't want to know. If you do, I'll tell you.
