Summary "This volume shares how schools can build a positive environment that enhances student health through encouraging intuitive eating and mind-body attunement. Focusing on health promotion in this manner serves to prevent the type of obesity related to eating in the absence of hunger and low physical activity without running the risk of encouraging disordered eating and food preoccupation among students. Therefore, this book helps develop a plan of action that addresses EDs and obesity concurrently, filling a noticeable gap in the literature left by books that treat EDs and obesity independently of one another. It is our hope that this book provides school personnel with the tools they need to look thoughtfully at their existing school environment, assess what is needed to make changes, and implement changes that will enhance the health of all students"--Introduction.
