In honor of National Eating Disorders Awareness Week, I was recently contacted about the upcoming release of the new book, Beating Ana: How to Outsmart Your Eating Disorder and Take Your Life Back by author Shannon Cutts.
As part of her blogosphere book tour to promote her new book. I will be receiving a copy to review shortly, and I wanted to offer one of my readers an opportunity to win a free copy of her book.
In a couple weeks, I will be interviewing Shannon here on my blog, after I have read/review the book myself.
According to materials I received, “In Beating Ana, Shannon reveals her own struggle with ED, introduces readers of six amazing women who have fought the same battle, and focuses on the need for those who suffer from eating disorders to look to mentors and sponsors to enable them to win.”
Jenni Schaefer, author of Life without ED, noted that, “Shannon’s depth of passion and honesty will provide much-needed hope to all of those touched by this insidious illness.”
Though I have shared with you before here on my blog that I have never starved myself or binged and purged, I still sometimes consider myself as someone who is always on the edge of having a full-fledged eating disorder … and so I feel like the topic of this book is still relevant to me — someone trying to live with/recover from disordered eating behaviors.
Please click here to view a forward of the book by Jessica Weiner, author of A Very Hungry Girl.
Please click here to view the preface of the book by Robin Richardson, MA, CMT.
Finally, please click here to view an excerpt of the book.
If you are interested in receiving a free copy of the book, please let me know in the comments. I will do a random drawing and announce the winner on Tuesday.
Have a healthy, happy weekend!

Thanks for the opportunity . . . I feel like I could learn so much from the book to help myself with my current struggle, and I would love to read it!
I would love to win! I need more ED recovery books!
Sounds like a great book, I’ve suffered from an ED when I was a teenager and I’m afraid that my niece is going down that path too so this would be a great book for her to read. Thanks for entering me.
I would like to win a copy of this book. I’m always interested to learn how others have progressed in their battles against EDs.
i would love to be a part of the drawing. this is an awesome idea. and i love the title of the book.
i am also interested in your interview with Shannon.
take care of yourself…
I am a faithful reader and am “de-lurking” to let you know I’d love a copy of this book! I love reading your posts because I feel like you often say just what I’m thinking. I also never suffered from a full-fledged eating disorder, but have certainly dealt with disordered eating and compulsive exercise. I also feel like I can relate to eating disorder material for this reason. I’m just finishing up “Gaining – The Truth About Life After Eating Disorders” by Aimee Liu, and was actually a bit surprised by how MUCH I really could relate to those suffering from actual eating disorders. It is a great book and I’d love to read another great one about this same subject. Pick me! Ha, ha. 🙂
That book looks very interesting! I can’t wait for your interview and review! I would love to win a copy!
Thanks everyone for commenting!! Tuesday morning I’ll announce the (random) winner!

The classic example is earthquake insurance, where the ability of an underwriter to issue a new policy depends on the number and size of the policies that it has already underwritten.
