Overview

Diary of an Exercise Addict by Peach Friedman

In 2000, Peach Friedman, a college senior freshly broken up from her boyfriend, set out to beat the blues by beating herself into shape. Running ten miles a day and taking in as little as 800 calories, she fell from 146 pounds to 100 in three months and was at serious risk of cardiac arrest. What Friedman suffered from was exercise bulimia—a newly diagnosed and rapidly spreading eating disorder that affects some 400,000 American women, and which gyms and colleges across America are beginning to take seriously. In Diary of an Exercise Addict Friedman recounts her descent into a life-threatening illness, her remarkable recovery, and the setbacks along the way. With refreshing candor she lays bare her relationships with family, friends, and lovers and the repressed desire that finally surfaced as she found her own way back to health.

Bought book based on high star rating, 1/2 way through a boring, pointless book I decided to actually read the reviews. There were only nine reviews showing, it was a carry on conversation amongst teens apparently using B&N review section as some kind of chatroom or place to leave msgs!??! I've flagged them and 2 wks later they're still there...READ ALL REVIEWS ON THIS, don't get RIPPED OFF like I did. >:(
