Imagine a world in which is it 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. No longer would you have to feel ashamed, hopeless, or helpless when you resolve each day to beat your eating disorder, only to fall down again. 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 and invites you into this world as she introduces you to a whole new way of thinking about and recovering from your eating disorder.

Shannon, too, fought hard during her 15-year battle with anorexia and bulimia and is now in a strong decade-long recovery from both. She 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 eating disordered thinking and living--for good. Here, in Beating Ana, Shannon shares her own story with you and introduces you to a fresh, new, powerful, and proven approach to overcoming your eating disorder--the world 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 in the same fun, introspective, practical and empowering techniques that 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!
