About the Book

For eleven years, Monica Kade lived with two monsters. As the symptoms of anorexia and bulimia nervosa overshadowed her every waking moment and took over her mind, Monica faced a decision: either lose herself forever or confront the monsters. A candid offering of anecdotes and wisdom based on her personal experiences and lessons learned about who she is, the power of the mind, and the true definition of healthy living. Kade shares insight into how battling two eating disorders became the catalyst for self-discovery through understanding the impact of her mind on her life choices. Through practical guidance and personal stories, Monica helps others dissolve body issues and incorporate sustainable, healthy habits that help eliminate expectations, fears, and illusions of the mind in order to love who we are inside and make positive changes to our well-being. The Storm under My Skin is a step-by-step conscious approach to lifestyle and health that serves to support anyone struggling with weight, body image, nutrition, and the voice in their head to make lifelong transformations.
