5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Book! 4 Oct 2010
By Melissa - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As someone recovering from an eating disorder, "Beating Ana" was a valuable resource for me. Not only did it provide me with inspiration and motivation to continue on my journey, but it gave lots of great activities to keep me on the right track and in a recovery mindset. I enjoyed the book, but when I finished it did not stop having an effect on me; I became a member of the author's site called MentorCONNECT, which is another wonderful outlet for those who are dealing with this illness to find strength and hope in a community of people who are positive. Worth every penny!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gentle, Insightful, Compassionate 15 Dec 2013
By Alison F Smela - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
After struggling with an eating disorder for well over 30 years, I'm now free from that silent prison and obsessive lifestyle. Throughout the slow and steady process of my recovery I believe in two very important variables for true healthy recovery and they are, structure and consistency. I learned this in a myriad of ways but mostly by interacting and questioning those who once walked the same path of struggle I did. This is why when I read "Beating Ana" I immediately connected with how author Shannon Cutts offers her insightful eating disorder recovery information. She’s based her book on what was true for her by presenting content in a well-structured, consistent way for those who want what she now has; a full and healthy life far from the throes of an eating disorder. From how she unveils each topic, to her suggested solutions, to a "Life Celebration Affirmations" - gentle reminders of hope - the reader is left feeling recovery is not only possible in general, but possible for them. For anyone struggling with an eating disorder (or those who love them), I highly recommend this book as an addition to a recovery "toolbox". This is the book you'll refer to often not one that will sit on the shelf!

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Book: Changed my life! 4 Dec 2013
By Ann Marie Simone - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book changed my life. The idea that "relationships replace eating disorders" is so powerful. It helped me to move from the edges of recovery into a strong recovery. It's an easy read, you feel like the author is walking with you. I read it cover to cover, couldn't put it down once I started.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helpful, in every way! 4 Dec 2013
By Lindsey - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
In reading "Beating Ana," I found myself thinking about how helpful having a mentor would have been when I was going through my struggles with anorexia and bulimia. I've since become a mentor on MentorConnect, and have found that the mentoring aspect is extremely helpful to those going through recovery. In my time with MC, I have seen countless cases lend themselves to this conclusion. My own mentees say how grateful they are that they have this connection to recovery. It's really amazing, and none of it would be possible without Shannon's book starting the movement. I reference it a lot when guiding my mentees, and think it's one of the better books on how relationships can replace EDs. Bravo, Shannon!
