At the risk of sounding like a groupie for FBT/Maudsley clinicians, I point you to the link below to a snippet of NPR's Talk of the Nation. Dr. Lock of Stanford does play a supporting role. The other reason is that the journalist being interviewed about her starvation experiment does a great job of articulating the starvation experience and how it intersects with her social and personal life. She's done us the public service of updating the Minnesota Starvation Study for females in 2008.

For the record, I am violently against what she did - and how it could be approved as entertainment. I wonder if the cameras would have rolled if what she was doing was smoking crack or being waterboarded?
