Emily Boller’s self-help book provides the necessary inspiration, education, and practical tips for you to escape food addiction—and in the process, shed unwanted pounds and reclaim your health.
Chubby in childhood, anorexic in her teens, and then obese until age 47, Emily Boller was desperate to find freedom from her struggles with food. When she began documenting her weight loss journey online, she never expected to become an inspirational voice for food addiction recovery to millions.
Starved to Obesity combines her personal journey, hard-won wisdom, and practical tips with Joel Fuhrman, M.D.’s teachings to create a powerful resource that will inspire and help you break free from entanglements that sabotage health and well-being. And, as the result of losing a child to suicide, she knows firsthand the impact of trauma and grief on addiction recovery—and how to recover from relapse as well. If you want long-term freedom, this book will show you the way!
