Inner Hunger: A Young Woman's Struggle Through Anorexia and Bulimia Summary


Inner Hunger: A Young Woman's Struggle Through Anorexia and Bulimia by Marianne Apostolides

A painful, powerful, and ultimately enriching account of what it feels like to be young, confused, and controlled by food. Adolescence is a time full of pitfalls for teenage girls. Many escape relatively unscathed; some--unable to cope successfully with the pressures exerted by family, school, and the media--develop eating disorders. Marianne Apostolides was one of those girls. She became anorexic at the age of fourteen and struggled for the next ten years with anorexia, binge eating, and bulimia. In this courageous work, Apostolides recreates the years in which she felt she could control her life only by controlling her diet. Insecure, unable to communicate with her parents, and driven to achieve at school, she initially found relief in the structure of calorie-counting and schedules. When the constant dieting became too much for her body to handle, she began to binge, and then to binge and purge. Her world defined by food, Apostolides would battle throughout high school, college, and adulthood to confront the deeper issues that compelled her to hurt herself again and again. This is a book about a young woman who did not know how to cope with her feelings, and who, through therapy, was able to find the road to recovery at last. Absorbing and honest, hers is an important story of anguish, frustration, and, ultimately, triumph. This book should be read by educators, parents concerned about their children's physical and emotional health, and young people who are either experiencing some form of eating disorder or are trying to recover.
