A Memoir of Anorexia, Exercise Bulimia, and Other Compulsions
One Man’s Epic Struggle with Eating and Exercise Obsessions

In his memoir, Battle for Control, Doug Erlandson shares the compelling story of his lifelong battle with anorexia, exercise bulimia, and obsessive-compulsive disorder.
While in graduate school, Doug lost more than one hundred pounds through diet and exercise. When he was 25 years old, he began teaching at the University of Nebraska and was in excellent physical condition.
However, the dieting and exercise that had brought him to this point soon were out of control, and within two years of becoming trim, Doug’s life was dominated by food and exercise addictions.
