Call for Interviews with Mid-life Women!

June 22, 2007

Dear Friends,
I hope you may be able to help me with an article I'm writing for Prevention Magazine about eating disorders in mid-life. If you're over 40 and have been treated for an active(or reactivated) eating disorder of any kind since turning 40, I'd love to interview you.
I do have to warn you, though...Prevention is not willing to use pseudonyms, so I would have to use your actual first name. (This is why I cannot use the interviews I conducted for my book.)

Prevention reaches millions of readers, and we could be doing a very good turn by helping them. We all know how therapeutic it is to share our stories!

If you can help, please send me a note at gainingthetruth@gmail.com

Many, many thanks...and be WELL!

Aimee Liu

Work on Eating Disorders
While there are numerous memoirs available chronicling individual women’s struggles with anorexia, bulimia, and other eating disorders, this is the first book to bring together many people’s stories to create a complete and candid picture of the recovery process. Aimee Liu has skillfully brought together firsthand accounts of recovery to create a realistic roadmap for the journey. This book also includes informational sidebars, written by professionals in the field, on topics including treatment options, choosing the right therapist, the pros and cons of medication, how parents and spouses can help, and much more.
How do anorexia and bulimia impact life AFTER recovery? GAINING is one of the first books about eating disorders to connect the latest scientific insights to the personal truth of life before, during, and especially after anorexia and bulimia.
America's first memoir of anorexia, and one of the earliest books about eating disorders, originally published in 1979
