This book is geared for people (primarily women) of all ages. The book explains why diets alone do not work. The book explores the fascinating phenomenon of Americans consuming less fatty food and exercising more than people of other nations, and yet comprising the nation of the highest overweight population and the nation with the most heart problems.
The readers discover that being overweight is only a symptom of deeper problems or illnesses. The book further addresses bulimia, which the late princess Diana has now shown to be a worldwide problem. The book also analyzes various forms of body dismorphia illustrating the points by surveys such as the ones that show that 85% of teenage girls think they are overweight when they are not.
The book first covers the Barbi Twins' bouts with bulimia and anorexia and then takes the reader through a step-by-step process of recovery through the knowledge of how to achieve radiant health and fitness which is now the path of the Barbi Twins. The book is an easy reading for anyone who wants to know about health and fitness. It includes food menus, charts, surveys and most-asked questions about health and fitness, as well as a glossary of terms. There is a section for everyone, for people with different types of bodies, health and eating problems. The reader will come away with solutions to having better health through better understanding of human mind and body.

This creative and original book identifies and explains solutions to healthy livingemotionally, physically and intellectually. Although the drama in Shane and Sia Barbis' lives is material for any juicy movie-of-the-week-this book is not an autobiography of the Barbi Twins.
Sia combines the irony of Woody Allen and the rebelliousness of Madonna with the conviction of Oprah. As you'll see for yourself as you turn the pages, her charisma truly brings this book to life.
Sia Barbi shares her experience, strength and hope with others who suffer from eating disorders, or whose search for the perfect diet or the perfect body has left them unfulfilled. However, if this book merely catalogued the sterile scientific research of a diet expert or chronicled the spiritual recovery of a lost soul, it would be precious, but not unique. What sets this book apart is the breakthrough perspective of its author-Sia Barbi-and her unique health and fitness solutions.
Sia not only researched and documented these solutions; along with her identical twin sister, she LIVED them. In her own words, Sia recounts the food addiction and recovery she shared with her sister Shane. Although the scary diet stories are just that-the solutions will inspire you to follow your heart and trust your soul.
Rarely do our superstars chose to share intimate details of their lives and challenge the stereotypes which molded their fame. With courage and conviction, Sia shatters the myth that beauty is the ultimate virtue of a woman.
Sia predominantly writes about women accepting themselves and each other. However, she also believes it is possible for all humanity to practice acceptance-that is why her story must be told.
Why do these experiences matter to you, the Reader? By exposing her private life and revealing her journey, the Sia will guide you on your own exceptional path-to becoming an extraordinary human being.From the Back Cover:
International models, comic book heroines and Hollywood celebrities, Shane and Sia Barbi, professionally known as the Barbi Twins, were forced to leave the entertainment industry at the height of their careers due to a life-threatening eating disorder. Now recovered bulimics, armed with degrees in nutrition, Shane and Sia speak candidly of their desperate journey from the world's best-selling pin-ups, to reclusive bulimics, to the vibrant and spiritual women they are today.
The main problem with diets and health advice is that most people lose their way in the midst of conflicting research and pseudo-possible solutions. Not only have the Barbi Twins researched these diet and fitness plans, they have LIVED them. Told in an inimitable style-filled with irony and a zany sense of humor-the Barbi Twins' book reveals the most effective, long-term solutions to healthy living.
