Are you a woman who struggles with any one or a combination of the following?
Bingeing and purging
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
