Imagine a World in which it is easy to find someone to turn to who understands your struggles, identifies with your wounds, and knows how lonely and scary it feels to live inside your skin. In this fantastic brave new world, you would face your eating disorder head on, standing tall and firm with supportive friends by your side as you get better—and stay that way! In Beating Ana, Shannon Cutts opens the door to this world as she introduces you to a whole new way of thinking about and recovering from your eating disorder. Shannon understands firsthand the total isolation, dead-end thinking, and exhausting mind tricks that eating disorders confine you to and has found a way to break free from her own 15-year battle with eating-disordered thinking and living—for good—through the powerful process of mentoring and connecting together. From the very first page of Beating Ana, you will experience the empowering joy of sharing your recovery process with others as Shannon guides you with the same techniques she developed to achieve her own lasting recovery and has since passed along to her own mentees. You will walk with Shannon through the recovery process as you read private correspondence from five of her longtime mentees and participate right along with them in self-quizzes, short exercises, motivational affirmations, and journaling that is specifically designed to give you the courage, support, and tangible skills to say 'no' to your eating disorder and 'yes' to your life!

The very immediate benefits of stopping overeating is the decrease of weight that stops many of health issues that obesity causes such as heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. The secondary benefit is the reduction of the person's stomach size which is constantly stretching and often breaks through the abdominal wall causing the larger than normal stomach. The last benefit is the increase of metabolism and the increases of proper nutrients and vitamins which increases a persons health and well being.

Winning My Battle With Eating Disorders Finding My FULL: This is my journey from starving to letting myself be FULL–physically & emotionally. What is living a FULL life? Having anorexia, bulimia, or vacillating between the two, you are trying to achieve an empty feeling through starvation or purging. Living a FULL life is a life where you aren’t starving anymore―starving for acceptance and love from others and yourself. It’s a life where you are feeding your mind and soul with good thoughts and foods. A life without your eating disorder (ED). Victim of the eating disorder monster: Imagine waking in a hospital bed to find your frail, pale arm punctured by an IV transferring fluids and nutrients into your weak, stiff body. What happened? You’re an adult, age twenty-six, and you just had a seizure precipitated by your chronic, secretive, decades-long struggle with unacknowledged EDs. You have no friends and no normal young-adult experiences. Living FULL is written by Danielle Sherman-Lazar, a woman who passed through the crucible of ED to recovery, and shares the most intimate and shameful details of her mental illness. Living FULL is author Danielle Sherman-Lazar's story. Hidden out of shame: Eating disorders in young adults are hardly talked about although they are pervasive. Eating disorders are kept hidden out of shame. A groundbreaking 2012 study published in the International Journal of Eating Disorders found that about 13 percent of women over age 50 exhibit ED symptoms. Journey to recovery: Living FULL chronicles author Danielle Sherman-Lazar's step-by-step descent into the nightmare of full-blown ED. Recovery comes from the Maudsley Approach, a regimen of supervised controlled eating or refeeding by out-patient helpers that eventually can result in recovery. Benefits of reading Living FULL: • See how to confront your ED demon • Learn from someone who won her ED battle • Discover a new and beautiful life

Eating disorders–including anorexia, bulimia, and compulsive overeating–are among the most painful and difficult illnesses a person can face. Sufferers know firsthand the confusion and agony these illnesses can bring. They also know how it feels to long for hope–and to wonder if victory can ever be achieved. The truth is, eating disorders affect the whole person. Yet treatments often focus on emotional issues alone. In this powerful book for individuals who suffer from eating disorders and those who love them, Dr. Gregg Jantz fills in the gaps left by traditional treatment programs, tackling not only the emotional, but also the crucial and all-too-often ignored relational, physical, and spiritual dimensions of healing. Outlining a comprehensive, holistic, and practical approach, Hope, Help, and Healing for Eating Disorders brings spiritual, relational, and physical elements back into the healing process. Described by best-selling author and physician Lendon Smith, author of Feed Your Kids Right, as “the most helpful book on eating disorders there is,” this book will, with God’s help and grace, lead readers out of their bondage to eating disorders and permanently transform lives.
