If you are keen to get to the part where we tell you about the key tasks you need to complete to recover from your eating disorder, you might find the next few pages frustrating and be tempted to skim over them. This is understandable as you might have been suffering from your eating disorder for a long time. However, it is precisely because you have been suffering for some time that you need to read the next section carefully and thoroughly. Eating disorders are complex problems. If they weren't, you would have been able to resolve yours a long time ago. The pages that follow have been written to help you prepare for your recovery – to stop you wading in before you are ready. In a sense, they are a “warm up,” which will maximize your chances of resolving your eating disorder once and for all.
