A compelling read! 12 Aug. 2013
By Carleen Joseph - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
As a black woman who suffers from anorexia who doesn't often see people like myself in treatment, I was glad to finally hear about a black woman's struggles with an eating disorder. I understand that this book represents her path through recovery. 12-Step models don't work for me but I do respect that this was her path. I wish she would have spent more time in this book on her journey of recovery. How did she tackle her intimacy issues? How did she meet her first husband and did pregnancy reawaken her bulimia? Has she had relapses? These are a few questions I needed her to answer.

Exceptional! 4 Aug. 2010
By Keleigh Crigler Hadley, author of Revenge Inc. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Not all Black Girls Know How to Eat is a compelling and brutally truthful account. It dismantles many long held stereotypes and myths in the African-American culture by shining a bright light on some of the traditions that are killing us.

This book is the first step in a journey to take control of our health, wealth, and well-being. I recommend that families read this together and commit to living a healthier, more honest life style.

Riveting 23 Sept. 2010
By DMB - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It's sad that when it comes to health blacks and whites are viewed differently, therefore getting different care and attention. I too had a body image problem when I was a teen as did most of the girls I grew up with - black and white. It's a human issue. Even culturally blacks and whites in the south or of southern origin have a different view on food then those in the north. Also, when it comes to trauma we are all affected the same which can lead to self destruction no matter what form it comes in. This book really helps to educate the medical profession to change their perspective on race and culture and look at issues for what it is. I am sorry the author had to go through the horrible trauma in her life, but it was an inspirational story for me and many.

Story too real 15 Jun. 2014
By A. Daniel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A loved this book. For a black girl who has also struggled with binges I could of relate to some of the feelings of overeating and feeling too full. The reasons for not giving a perfect score was because a lot of the story was repeated to often.
Best ED memoir since Wasted. 22 Jun. 2014

Honest and frank account of living with bulimia. A tough read in parts but I would definitely recommend it as a source of inspiration to those not yet recovered.
