    The preface alone changed my life

    If you've always beaten yourself up about your apparent lack of willpower with food, this book is for you. You don't have to have a diagnosed eating disorder for this book to help. It's for every woman who's known in her heart that food and her appearance holds too much power over her. It's a beautifully written book full of eye and heart opening words of wisdom.

    please, read this book!

    As a female struggling with an eating disorder, I cannot even begin to put into words how much this book means to me. I truly feel that this book can help every woman that struggles with eating and body image. Anita is a wonderful guide through the recovery process, and she will provide you not only with amazing insight, but also with compassion and encouragement through the difficult process. Please read this book, I promise you will not regret it!

    the greatest tool in overcoming disordered eating!

    I struggled with eating disorders (mainly complusive/binge) for 11 years, and in addition to psychotherapy, this book is what helped overcome it and still does when I find myself slipping. It's not about body size, weight, or a 10 step program. That's what I love about this book. Of all the books on eating disorders that I own, this was the greatest and most inspiring. Please buy this book if you or someone you love has an eating disorder of any kind- it will make the healing/ curing process that much easier and beautiful!

    WONDERFUL!!!

    This book supplied the inspiration necessary to break free of an eating disorder. It is truly incredible how the author weaves modern issues into traditional stories. This book is a must for anyone struggling with an eating disorder, body dissatisfaction, or anyone who knows someone with these issues.
