Society’s glorification of restrictive eating behaviors has led to sobering statistics: 9 percent of the U.S. population will have an eating disorder in their lifetime, and the affliction spans gender, race, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic groups. Eating disorders are among the deadliest of mental illnesses — second only to opioid overdose. Those caught in the downward spiral of continually obsessing about food, weight, and body image need support to free themselves from this dangerous illness. Those not suffering from an eating disorder believe that saying “No!” to self-destructive behaviors should be a no-brainer. But for those seeking recovery, it’s a daily struggle. There’s no single strategy or silver bullet. Instead, it’s a journey of fits and starts. In this workbook we follow Author Faith Elicia’s recovery journey in an interactive format that emphasizes a “we” approach and provides strategies, prompts, and tools for healing and positive change.
