Anorexia nervosa is the deadliest of all eating disorders and one that almost took my life. Fighting anorexia focuses on sharing coping skills, hope, inspiration and motivation for the journey of recovery. The more positive input eating disorder sufferers receive in the beginning of their way to health the more effective their recovery can be. Fighting Anorexia serves as just one of those pillars of positivity.

Her enthusiasm and love for people is contagious :)
Sophie is in one of our online communities...and she peaked my curiosity when she mentioned her podcast and website. As a person who struggles with overeating, I can understand struggles with food. I like it how she shares her personal stories of overcoming anorexia. I really appreciated her episode about the holidays and how she's grown in dealing with food issues better during the holidays.I like the way she gets past the 'surface' issues and wrestles w/ the core issues of eating issues. Thanks Anne-Sophie for great advice...and for sharing your personal story!
Beautiful, thoughtful, caring with tons of USEFUL tips!
Ann-Sophie is the most sincere podcaster. She weaves her own story and her own struggles and desperately wants to help those of you who suffer from any eating disorder. But beyond that, she helps you with generally eating healthy and taking care of yourself, and that's what I love about this podcast. I've luckily never suffered from an eating disorder, only from eating obsessions or diet obsessions - so maybe just on the border there ;) - but listening to Anne-Sophie helps me so much with self-image issues I used to struggle with as well as calms me about my own eating choices today. She is phenomenal. I highly recommend her!
