"I haven’t tasted chocolate for over ten years and now I’m walking down the street unwrapping a Kit Kat. Remember when Kate Moss said, ‘Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels’? She’s wrong: chocolate does."
For Christmas I’m giving myself a fresh start. I have to get some extra pounds of weight under my belt; I want to make next year the year that everything changes.
At the age of 32, Emma Woolf decided to face the biggest challenge of her life: to let go of her addiction to hunger, exercise and control, and finally beat anorexia. Having met the man of her dreams (and wanting a future and a baby together), she decided it was time to stop starving and start living. And as if that wasn’t enough pressure, Emma also agreed to chart her progress in a weekly column for The Times.
Honest, hard-hitting and yet romantic, 'An Apple a Day' is a compelling and life-affirming true story of love and recovery.
