"Natalie's story teaches us how her suffering as a child translated into the deep suffering of her eating disorder. Her feisty and witty personality makes for a vivid narration of her long pathway to recovery. This is a very worthwhile read for anyone who would like to deepen their understanding of food addiction."
- Nancy Christie, Psychotherapist
"Highly recommended for any who struggle with obesity or other eating disorders ... Its blend of autobiography and insights wraps all this in a cloak of personal experience that invites both binge eaters and their loved ones to read, relate, and understand the confusion surrounding losing weight, self-image, and family interactions."
- D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

I'm glad that Natalie Gold finally found appropriate treatment and recovered to write this book.
By becoming a psychotherapist, the author is able to help others through both personal experience and years of therapy and studies. She also injects a fair bit of humour into her story, enabling a healing of the whole person.
The end of the book ties together beautifully the essentials of the author's own healing process. And she provides a practical appendix of underlying trigger issues related to all types of addictive behaviour. Overall, this book is incredibly honest, well-written, and highly informative.
