#116-Hannah Howard: Feast

Hannah Howard is the best-selling author of the new book “Feast: True Love In and Out of the Kitchen.” She joins me this week to give you a little teaser just before she hits a domestic tour to promote it. “Feast” discusses not only Hannah’s struggles with eating disorders but how her romantic relationships and her involvement in the food and restaurant industries shaped much of her self-image. As a personal trainer, this book was a fascinating and in many ways heartbreaking story to read and Hannah does an amazing job of showing her emotions and her passion for life before finally finding body acceptance and success through Overeaters Anonymous.
