With courage, honesty and humor, Dr. Ellie Katz explores her struggle with food and body image. As one who has fought a battle with dieting from the age of five, Ellie understands the difficulties and the disappointments of this war. She has experienced both the highs and the inevitable plummet into feelings of defeat and despair that come after binge eating. A holistic psychologist, Dr. Ellie Katz looks inward and follows her own conduct without cutting corners and documents her thought patterns with fun-loving compassion. The challenge is to beat, once and for all, the inner saboteur who impedes and blurs her true progress and recovery. My Last Summer as a Fat Girl is a rare and personal analysis of a subject familiar to so many, how we use food to dull our emotions, the ones we would rather not face. Join Ellie on the road to a most coveted destination - a life well-lived.
