Unbearable Lightness: A Story of Loss and Gain by Portia de Rossi is the story of one woman and her eating disorder. De Rossi does a wonderful job of putting the reader inside her mind and really showing you the daily struggle she had with food consumption. Often her time was spent thinking about when she would allow herself to eat again and what exercising she would do in order to burn all of the calories consumed. An incredible well written story that looks at de Rossi as an adult, while explaining her life as a teenager. The story jumps times, but it is easy to follow between the past and the present. The hardest part is that de Rossi feels she has no eating problem and in fact all actress/models eat like she does. With a powerful and inspiring epilogue explaining how recovery is a daily battle, this book is sure to give you a new perspective on eating disorders and the thought process behind it. This is a highly recommended read for anyone who knows someone with an eating disorder or mental illness, or someone suffering.
