Book debut: The Eating Disorder Trap: A Guide for Clinicians and Loved Ones

Robyn L. Goldberg, RDN, CEDRD-S, a nutrition therapist and the founder of Robyn L. Goldberg RDN Consulting, brings you her debut book, The Eating Disorder Trap: A Guide for Clinicians and Loved Ones.  

The Eating Disorder Trap combines the latest research as well as the knowledge Goldberg has gathered working in nutrition for over two decades. The book takes readers into the mind of individuals who battle with eating disorders every day and details the telltale signs of each disorder. She breaks myths about the nutritional, psychological, and medical components of eating disorders by translating complicated topics in a user-friendly manner. The book also answers several questions that clinicians and families of patients might ask to better understand eating disorders and the process toward recovery. Goldberg wrote The Eating Disorder Trap as a way to provide a resource for clinicians and other healthcare professionals after seeing a knowledge gap in the medical industry when it came to eating disorders. “There are a lot of clinicians who aren’t trained in eating disorders, and they end up diagnosing someone with depression or anxiety only to learn later that an individual is struggling with an eating disorder,” says Goldberg.  

 “This is for any clinician, whether it’s a dentist or a gynecologist. They could also be a mental health provider, sports coach, religious figure, maybe someone involved in their church or synagogue. I would say anyone living and breathing, it’s a book for them.” Additionally, Goldberg mentions how important this book is for families because oftentimes, families think they’re helping, but end up making matters worse because they’re unaware of how to approach the situation. She also wrote the book for those suffering with an eating disorder to help them to develop a deeper insight into their disease.
