Default Dichotomous thinking in Anorexia Nervosa


I am wondering if anyone has any suggested dialogue for targeting dichotomous, b&w thinking sometimes seen in clients with Anorexia Nervosa.

I've not been able to find anything in the books I've read or articles I've perused.

Specifically, I'm wondering about the notion that "If I begin to gain weight, I will be fat. Everyone will see me as being humongous."

Well, there is a continuum of weight. It isn't going from being underweight to being fat... the middle portion of the spectrum (appearing healthy, at a normal BMI) is missing.

Any sample dialogue, or questions to ask the client, that'd be particularly effective to get at this?
