“We need more brave men like Andrew Walen speaking out about their eating disorders to break down some of the stigmas that are barriers to effective treatments. Fat bullying and shaming are harmful and often can lead to dieting and shame which can be triggers for an eating disorder in someone who is biologically predisposed.”
Becky HenryFounder, Hope Network for Eating Disorders Caregivers
“Your kind of work — both your content and your style — are much needed in the female-crowded world of eating disorder recovery. There needs to be a movement for the normalization of men with eating disorders just as there was for women with alcoholism. And I believe you are going to be an important part of bringing that about.”
Thom RutledgeAuthor of Embracing Fear, and co-author of Life Without Ed
“Mr. Walen tells the tale of his journey from shame and self-destruction to a caring, whole individual reaching out to others to help with their pain. His writing is clear, witty and engaging. Even if you don’t have an eating disorder, his story of courage and insight is inspirational.”
