Anorexia, bulimia and binge eating are on the increase across the world. According to the US Renfrew Foundation, 70 million people suffer from an eating disorder. Numerous studies confirm that the risk of falling victim to such a disorder is highest for girls and young women in western industrial nations. Even so, stigma and denial surround the disorder, its causes and consequences, and the topic is still kept out of social discourse. Mafalda Rakoš has accompanied her protagonists for years and, in close cooperation with everyone involved, brought them together in this book. Intimate portraits, memories and experiences of sufferers allow insights into the personal conflicts, disruptions and insecurities at the root of these disorders. One thing quickly becomes clear: eating disorders are certainly no sign of weakness. And you are definitely not alone in it.
