Overview

International models, comic book heroines and Hollywood celebrities, Shane and Sia Barbi, professionally known as the Barbi Twins, were forced to leave the entertainment industry at the height of their careers due to a life-threatening eating disorder. Now recovered bulimics, armed with degrees in nutrition, Shane and Sia speak candidly of their desperate journey from the world's best-selling pin-ups, to reclusive bulimics, to the vibrant and spiritual women they are today.

The main problem with diets and health advice is that most people lose their way in the midst of conflicting research and pseudo-possible solutions. Not only have the Barbi Twins researched these diet and fitness plans, they have LIVED them. Filled with irony and a zany sense of humor, the book reveals the most effective, long-term solutions to healthy living.
