Resources about eating disorders?

Seeking recommendations on books/websites about all aspects of eating disorders.

Looking for recommendations from mental health professionals or persons who have dealt with ED personally or with a family member. What resources did you find to be most helpful? Any sources of information to avoid?

Harriet Brown recently discontinued her blog, but there are some great resources there, as well as in her book Brave Girl Eating.

The website has a lot of information and links.


Things to avoid: any website that's selling something, any website that says it's "treatment neutral" (because it's probably pro-ED), pro-ED websites.

When I was in a bad place, I found the book Life Without Ed really helpful. I remember at first I thought the premise was really hokey, but in the end it helped me get outside myself a bit and view the disorder from a new viewpoint.
