Eating Myself, Paperback
3 out of 5 (1 rating)


Candida Crewe's relationship with food is anxiety-ridden.

In fact, is there anything 'normal' about any woman's relationship with their weight?

Most women, even those who have never had any kind of eating disorder, hover on the edge.

They are keenly aware of what they eat, and think they would be happier if they were a bit thinner, or quite a lot thinner.

Eating Myself is a wise, witty and often disturbing memoir, charting one woman's uneasy struggle to face her demons.

Review by

I found this book to be quite dull really. It was a bit self indulgent and didn't really speak to me about issues with food and eating. Eating disorders aren't about weight and food, they are about control and self-esteem. The end of the book was interesting in exploring why people want to lose weight, and for whom, but it never really got to the point.
