This is a special hour long audio interview with Recovery Support Officer Natalie Wild who works for Australia's largest eating disorder charity Eating Disorders Victoria

During the interview Natalie shares her thoughts and experiences on a number of critical recovery issues, so even if you’re not based in Australia you’ll still be able to benefit from the vast amount of experience and recovery insight Natalie has to offer!    

Listen as Alison Lee shares her personal struggle with bulimia and takes us on an incredibly honest and inspiring journey through the past 12 months of her recovery.

Alison shares how she went from a life of exhaustion and depression, spending $800 a week on groceries and not knowing how to stop bingeing, to achieving full recovery from bulimia in just 12 months.

She reveals many personal recovery insights along the way too, including how she adapted to structured eating, how she managed to avoid acting on powerful binge urges, the importance of avoiding “people pleasing” during recovery and the advice she wants to give to those of you still struggling with bulimia today.

This is really powerful stuff, so if you’re still unsure about whether recovery is right for you then I urge you to listen to Alison’s story today, it may just end up changing your life! Please note, the interview is around 60 minutes long so you may want to download it your computer

Kathryn Hansen, recovered bulimic and author of the best-selling eating disorders book, "Brain over Binge: Why I Was Bulimic, Why Conventional Therapy Didn't Work, and How I Recovered for Good" discusses why you may be linking your negative emotions to your binge eating, but also why your negative emotions aren’t to blame.

Here are 8 of the most common "False Fears" that hold people back from bulimia recovery. Which ones are affecting you?

Just 3 years ago, if someone would have asked me how I imagined my life being today, I can’t say I would have given the most optimistic answer.

After all I was just starting out on the road to recovery at that point and you know how it can be at the start. Everything is so intimidating, scary and emotionally overwhelming. Back then I simply had no idea of the extent to which recovering from bulimia could change a person’s life.
