This book is the sometimes shocking, often blackly funny story of her rollercoaster ride through anorexia, bulimia, bulimarexia, gym-obsession and, finally, recovery. Between the ages of 17 and 30, Rachael Oakes-Ash lost 60kg 10 stone and gained 72kg 12 stone. As the title indicates, it's a book packed with attitude. Rachael may be an extreme case, but almost every woman out there understands her obsession with food, her bad body image and the amount of wasted energy she put into both. Three-quarters of the women in Australia think they are too fat. Most of them are wrong. This book is for all of those women. Unlike previous books on anorexia, bulimia, food obsession and bad body image, this is a very accessible story.

Between the ages of 17 and 31, Rachael Oakes-Ash lost 63kg and gained 76kg on a roller-coaster of body image problems and food obsession. She went through anorexia, bulimia, bulimarexia, gym mania, strict dieting and binge eating before she finally she figured out how to stop torturing herself and hating her body. Good Girls Do Swallow is the very black and very funny story of her downfall and her recovery. Rachael might have taken things further than many of us, but this is a story every woman can relate to. You might not have rescued food from the rubbish bin in a moment of binge-madness but if you've ever felt lousy and reached for a chocolate biscuit for comfort, this book is for you. I got the job I love, I got the man I want. But I only got it for keeps when I stopped dieting.
