Tracey Gold: An Inspirational Survivor

We knew her as Carol Seaver on the hit show Growing Pains about the picture-perfect 80's family. Later, it came out that Tracey Gold was suffering from anorexia. After plummeting to 80 pounds and nearly dying, she was forced to leave the show, and enter rehab in 1992.

Tracey wrote a book about her traumatic and moving experience of her journey to recovery called Room to Grow: An Appetite for Life. In it, she describes her feelings and experiences with anorexia, and how she managed to survive through it.

She says, "My hope is that in sharing my experiences, battles and hard-earned knowledge, Room to Grow will be something people can turn to for help, a source of comfort and encouragement. It is for every sister, daughter, friend or boyfriend whose life has been touched by anorexia nervosa. This is my story. I hope it helps."

It's an inspirational story outlining the truth about women and the pressure they feel about their body image. Buy it through Amazon.
