Are you a woman who struggles with any one or a combination of the following?
Compulsive overeating
Bingeing and purging
Obsessive exercising
Yo-yo dieting
Preoccupation with food and/or body image
Have you read all kinds of books and/or articles about eating disorders that leave you feeling even worse and hopeless than you did before you read them?
I was in your shoes a while back and I became increasingly frustrated and depressed by the literature that was available to me when I started my road to recovery from disordered eating. I got really tired of reading ‘doom and gloom’ stories about people with eating disorders who rarely got better.
I knew intimately what it was like to experience disordered eating; what I needed help and guidance with was getting better. I was at a loss to find positive and healthy role models of vibrant recovery.
By reading this book, I can help you to:
Stop dieting forever and instead, adopt a sane, balanced approach to food and eating
Come to accept and love yourself exactly as you are; no matter what shape or size you happen to be
Let go of food and weight preoccupation forever so that you can focus your energies on the exciting and fulfilling things you want to do instead


“I'm sure Esther Kane's honest book will speak to lots of women and help them on the road to understanding and changing their food and body issues.”
- Susie Orbach, author of Fat is a Feminist Issue l and ll
In this book, Esther Kane takes a kind, wise and loving approach to the fraught problems of diet, eating disorders, weight and body image. Her gentle storytelling, along with the tools she provides, may help many readers untie some of the tangles that trap them.”
- Steven Bratman, MD, Author of Health Food Junkies
