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.

Have a healthy, happy weekend!
