Weight Problems and Eating Disorders - General Practice: The Integrative Approach. This chapter discusses anorexia and bulimia-like disorders. These eating disorders are characterised by the use of inappropriate behaviours to control body weight and feelings, as evidenced by low body weight, high body weight, extreme weight-control behaviours such as vomiting and starvation, excessive exercise and binge eating.

Obesity - General Practice: The Integrative Approach. General Practitioners in primary care are uniquely placed to help in the management of patients in all stages of overweight and obesity, and are able to maintain a therapeutic relationship with patients over many years. General practitioners should take a long-term view of weight problems, which can mean avoiding goals for weight management that are unlikely to be achieved.
