Book Description

End your broken relationship with food. 
The Sound of Secrets is a blend of self-help, memoir, and fitness advice that'll make you learn, laugh, and cry.

In America, disordered eating is the new normal. You may never have an official eating disorder, but if you're a woman, you've likely struggled with some form of disordered eating in the past. You may be in the throes of that struggle right now.
The Sound of Secrets tells a story of a small town girl who struggled with anorexia and bulimia for half her life. It will give you insight into the root causes of anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating disorder, along with lesser-known disordered eating patterns. It provides non-clinical solutions to help women nourish themselves, make the best choices, and uncover their strength and beauty.

Regardless of your current dietary practices, you'll pick up real, practical advice on eating well.

PERSONAL NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR
This book is an account of my sister's battle with anorexia, my own disordered eating battles, and what I've learned about women who fight with food. It provides the solutions that saved me from adopting the demons that killed my sister.

This is the first sane advice I have come across as a woman who has had a tumultuous history and relationship with food since my early teens. Dani offers you guidance and tools, like showing compassion toward yourself, even if you are in the throws of what seems like the most repulsive, vile behaviour; bingeing on junk food until you're fit to burst. Other tools and advice talked about include ways to eat and enjoy food that are mindfull, and much more, that will help you to overcome the trap of binge eating followed by savage mental and dietary punishment cycles that emerge from the enormous pressure we put on ourselves to be 'perfect' and be good enough. Hyper-restriction and exercise and fasting punishments are covered as well as bingeing, which I struggle with most. All of what Dani offers in this book is useful and relevant, though, no matter what kind of disordered eater you are. So much of this book resonated with me, and I have no doubt it will resonate hugely with you too given the world of 'skinny' and impossibly high standards we live in. I hope you will be as pleasantly surprised as I was at how much Dani 'hits the nail on the head' on the underlying reasons and motivations behind all this self-inflicted cruelty and disrespect we've been showing ourselves and our bodies. I also hope that this book will get you excited again about healthy living for all the right reasons, and that you will find solace in the sanity of dani's words, stories, experiences, and her belief in reclaiming beauty from the people who think anything other than size zero is unacceptable, and that we should therefore keep on punishing ourselves until we fit the bill.

1.0 out of 5 stars Tagline misleading 14 Jan. 2014
By Jessedi
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
You may be fooled by the tagline into thinking this is an informed "how-to" offering an approach to disordered eating.

It is not.

It is a rambling memoir of the author's struggle with bulimia, as well as a long winded expression of her regret that she was unable to prevent her sister's death from anorexia. No reinvetion mentioned at all.
I lost interest when I got to the part where she suggests that anorexia is caused by demonic possession. Really? I think modern society has long since progressed beyond blaming mental illness on demonic possession.

Dani helps women understand their eating habits and gives you a plan to change so that you can finally have a healthy relationship with food. She explains the binge-punish cycle that sets us up for disordered eating. By sharing her story about her own struggles with food and her sister's, she helps us rethink our relationship with food. A wonderful book that teaches us to show compassion to ourselves and how to stop punishing ourselves.

As a coach this is a serious issue with athletes but it's very relevant to all women. If you mentor young women you need to be aware

I am so relieved to hear someone speak so candidly about something that has seemed so nebulous, yet pervasive in our society. Dani has a way with words that really does put a "sound" to these "secrets" that so many of us have. I have had a struggle with food for many years now, and Dani's book has given me the tools to help me begin loving myself. Thank you Dani Shugart for sharing your story with us.
