Eating disorders affect up to 24 million Americans and 72 million people worldwide. My guest today is Johanna S. Kandel, founder and executive director of The Alliance for Eating Disorders Awareness, who struggled with her eating disorder for 10 years before finally getting help. Now fully recovered, Kandel wrote a book called "Life Beyond Your Eating Disorder." Joanna will talk about her healing process and how the Alliance can help you or your loved one(s). She'll share some of her practical tools to address the everyday challenges of recovery, which are included in her book, Life Beyond Your Eating Disorder. For instance, you'll get tools to: • Stop self-sabotage and sidestep triggers • Quiet the eating-disordered voice • Strengthen the healthy, positive voice • Let go of all-or-nothing thinking • Overcome fear and embrace change • Stay motivated and keep moving forward Complete with inspiring true stories from others who have won their personal battles with eating disorders, this book provides the help you need to break free from your eating disorder and discover how wonderful life really can be.
