Author Shani Raviv On Being Fully Recovered From Anorexia

This is part two of my interview with Shani Raviv, author of the award-winning book Being Ana: A Memoir of Anorexia Nervosa.

In part one, she discussed her inspiration for writing Being Ana and how she was able to separate anorexia from her identity.

Below, Shani reveals what helped her recover from a 10-year struggle with anorexia, the powerful role yoga played and what full recovery means to her. I especially love what she says about being full recovered.

  1. I might be biased because I am Shani’s grandmother but I feel so proud of her to have fully overcome all that she has and to be the wonderful intelligent complete woman that she now is.

    Her insight into the ghastly affliction of Anorexia and how one can overcome it could help so many of those who have that serious condition.

    • @ Doris, I completely agree! 🙂 You definitely have so much to be proud of. Recovering from an eating disorder is hard work, and so is writing a memoir and returning to those difficult times. I’m really thankful to Shani for sharing her story.
