          Extreme Food Obsessions

          August 25, 2006



          Imagine craving food so badly that you yell, kick and scream when you can’t get enough. Imagine starving yourself to the point of skin and bones. Dr. Phil’s guests are dealing with serious, and sometimes life-threatening, eating disorders.



          Living with Prader-Willi Syndrome

          Nichelle says her 6-year-old daughter, Savannah, just wants to eat constantly, and when she isn’t fed, she gets out of control. When Savannah throws a fit, Nichelle says it’s her own temper that worries her.


          “I feel like I am being a bad parent.”


          Dying to Be Thin

          Kathy’s battle with anorexia was so bad, she was near death. When Dr. Phil met with the 38-year-old in July, she weighed a startling 68 pounds.


          “Kathy was waiting to die.”



          The Long Road to Recovery

          Kathy has been in six treatment centers and has relapsed each time. Now her family worries that she’ll fall back into old habits.




          Can they learn to support her and not enable her?


          Update: Out of treatment and on her own.
