Eating disorders know no boundaries. They don't discriminate.

Every story of living with an eating disorder is unique. Eating Disorders Don't Discriminate brings together thirty-one of them, each tackling the stereotypes and misconceptions about what eating disorders look like and who they impact.
Athletes, activists, directors, models, health professionals, and more share their experiences of eating disorders, including binge eating disorder, bulimia nervosa, anorexia nervosa, ARFID and OSFED, and highlight the complexities of how race, gender, culture and social media can influence our experiences of body and food.
Compiled by Dr Chuks Nwuba, who has cared for some of the UK's most unwell eating disorder patients, and TikToker and eating disorder advocate Bailey Spinn, this stirring anthology is one of hope and encouragement for anyone who feels misunderstood and underrepresented.

Press Reviews

  • Cara Lisette, CBT therapist, Registered Mental Health Nurse and author of The Eating Disorder Recovery Journal

    Eating Disorders Don't Discriminate is a glorious book that not only serves to show the wide ranging impact of eating disorders, but also brings these experiences to life through giving a voice to people who may not have seen themselves represented in eating disorder dialogue until now. An important, refreshing and essential read.
  • Zach Stafford, Tony Award-winning producer of A Strange Loop

    Eating Disorders Don't Discriminate is an essential book that doesn't just focus on the medical or scientific aspects of disordered eating, but rather plants its roots in the humanness of it all. A humanness that is most often missed in conversations like these -- and is desperately needed to be felt by anyone who has battled an eating disorder or helped a loved one on their own journey.
  • Dr Hazel Wallace, Sunday Times Best-Selling Author and Founder of the The Food Medic

    The work of Dr Chuks and Bailey is so incredibly important for highlighting how eating disorders can affect any gender, race, age or ethnic background and addresses the myths and misconceptions when it comes to eating disorders and their presentation.
  • The Lancet
