Abstract:

In Like Mother, Like Daughter, Debra traces the spread of disordered eating and body dissatisfaction in each generation to more and more women and to younger and younger girls. Through the latest research, she documents the destructive cycle of dieting and overeating, and untangles the complicated web of mother-daughter food connections. Debra Waterhouse provides the skills needed to break free from this unhealthy cycle, pass on healthier eating patterns, and finally overcome our weight obsessions. Like Mother, Like Daughter will help all women to rise above society's restrictive eating rules; recognize the many direct and subtle ways that mothers, serving as society's messengers, unknowingly pass the torch of food and weight preoccupation; accept the healthy biological passage of womanhood from puberty through menopause and find a comfortable weight that's right for them; and take responsibility for their own relationship with food and become a healthier role model for the important women in their lives.
