As she reaches for recovery, she shares within these pages how she got caught in the dieting trap, the trauma she faced, the lies she believed, her journey through therapy, and her advice for all those who are struggling to overcome a Beast o… f their own. She opens up her journal and gives us an inside look at the rawest and most vulnerable moments in her life.
