This is like Amy’s story – but it has an inspirational and happy ending.

If the Sixty Minutes story on Sunday night on Amy Uebergang touched you and left you hating the disease Anorexia, you’re not alone. The fact is, Anorexia’s least discussed form is Anorexia Athletica – obsessive compulsive exercise addiction.
By: Donna Munro
Sept. 17, 2010 - PRLog -- It has been estimated that 90-95 percent of people diagnosed with eating disorders have also been attending fitness centres. This is a big concern with such a body conscious society and the constant portrayal of super-fit, super slim actors and models.
Marion Maclean’s own life-threating battle led her to write the beneficial Defeating Anorexia Athletica.
The book is being launched in Sydney at Dymocks, 424 George Street at 10am. Mr John Brogden, Director of Lifeline Australia, who wrote the foreword, will be a guest speaker.
Other interesting people attending include:
   Christine Morgan, CEO The Butterfly Foundation
   Enrique ‘Topo’ Rodgriguez, ASM, Founder and CEO, Topo Foundation for Education
   Professor Phillipa Hay, University of Western Sydney
   Tara Ali, Women’s Health Magazine
   Graeme Cowan – Bounce Back and Thrive by discovering what really matters

Defeating Anorexia Athletica is a beneficial easy-to-read book which will provide great enlightenment. Particularly if a life near you has been touched by:
•   Depression
•   Obsessive Compulsive Disorders
•   Addiction
•   Anorexia – Eating Disorders
•   Mental Illness
•   You need Inspiration and Motivation
Defeating Anorexia Athletica is a must-read memoir that will deliver fresh hope and understanding to anyone touched by any of the above. The author began writing it to bring healing and closure to the many issues affecting her life. Her main aim is to raise awareness of Anorexia Athletica, which remains a relatively unexplored topic. Well researched and with many humorous anecdotes, Defeating Anorexia Athletica is a sobering, enlightening and consistently hopeful book that explains the way in which our childhoods influence the people we ultimately become. Through Maclean’s own recovery she explores how, by coming to understand her mother’s tragic story, she saved her life and defeated a secret addiction that our society often fails to acknowledge properly.
With a successful first launch at Wollongong on August 24 this second launch is a must attend for any media.
