9780762759996: Diary of an Exercise Addict

In 2000, Peach Friedman, a college senior freshly broken up from her boyfriend, set out to beat the blues by beating herself into shape. Running ten miles a day and taking in as little as 800 calories, she fell from 146 pounds to 100 in three months and was at serious risk of cardiac arrest. What Friedman suffered from was exercise bulimia―a newly diagnosed and rapidly spreading eating disorder that affects some 400,000 American women, and which gyms and colleges across America are beginning to take seriously.

In Diary of an Exercise Addict Friedman recounts her descent into a life-threatening illness, her remarkable recovery, and the setbacks along the way. With refreshing candor she lays bare her relationships with family, friends, and lovers and the repressed desire that finally surfaced as she found her own way back to health.

From the Inside Flap:

As a young Southern woman in her senior year of college, Peach Friedman set out to beat the blues―and a break-up with her boyfriend―by beating herself into shape. Running ten miles a day and taking in as little as 800 calories, she forbade herself from indulging in the sensual pleasure of food and worked her body to exhaustion to avoid dealing with her emotional pain.
She fell from 146 to 100 pounds in three months.
Friedman suffered from exercise bulimia―a compulsion to purge calories through excessive exercise, and a rapidly growing eating disorder that affects some 400,000 American women. Having lost all memory of the sexy, curvaceous woman she once knew, Friedman found herself at serious risk of cardiac arrest.
In Diary of an Exercise Addict, Friedman chronicles her harrowing six-year ordeal―from her gradual descent into a life-threatening eating disorder to her remarkable recovery, and the setbacks and challenges she encountered along the way. With refreshing candor, she unveils her intimate relationships with family, friends, and lovers, as well as the repressed desire that finally finds its way to the surface as she finds her own way back to health. In this raw and illuminating narrative, Friedman does not shy away from recounting the most painful details about her body, her sex life, and her family, as well as her darkest, most terrifying thoughts.
In a culture obsessed with weight management and fitness, this extraordinary memoir exposes the very real dangers of pushing your body too hard, while showing how one woman's courage and determination helped her to eventually wind her way back to a full recovery. A book about accepting yourself―and your body―and embracing your true identity, Diary of an Exercise Addict will comfort, inspire, and captivate.

From the Back Cover:

An extraordinary narrative about one woman's battle with exercise bulimia
“Peach Friedman's chronicle of a life with exercise bulimia is the most detailed and honest example of how this disease can enter and take over your life. She exposes every aspect of the emotional, physical, and mental effects this disorder can have on an individual, and with her candidness, I know she can help so many others out there in the world who suffer from this eating disorder.”
―Jamie-Lynn Sigler, actress, author of Wise Girl
“Not only will you find this book accessible and useful but so captivating that you won't want to put it down.”
―Jenni Schaefer, author of Life Without Ed
“Peach Friedman writes with ruthless honesty and a poet's grace about an addiction that is all too common in our fitness-crazed society . . . it will give hope to the many whose compulsion to over-exercise prevents them form leading full and healthy lives.”
―Aimee Liu, author of Gaining: The Truth About Life After Eating Disorders
