Jennifer Schaefer lived with both anorexia and bulimia. We are extremely excited to have her on our show to discuss her successful recovery in hopes that it may help our listeners.

Jenni Schaefer is an internationally known author and speaker whose work has helped change the face of recovery from eating disorders.

Her breakthrough best-seller, Life Without Ed: How One Woman Declared Independence from Her Eating Disorder and How You Can Too (McGraw-Hill), popularized an approach that enables men and women to personify their illness (Jenni called hers "Ed," short for "Eating Disorder") and "divorce" themselves from it. Her latest book, Goodbye Ed, Hello Me: Recover from Your Eating Disorder and Fall in Love with Life (released in September 2009 by McGraw-Hill), takes the journey a step farther, from recovery to liberation.

Jenni is a regular guest on national radio and television shows including Dr. Phil and Entertainment Tonight, a contributor to mainstream magazines and collections like the Chicken Soup series, and a popular speaker at schools, conferences, and other venues. She is also a consultant with Center For Change in Orem, Utah, and a member of the Ambassador Council of the National Eating Disorders Association. Her work has been recognized in publications including Cosmopolitan, the Chicago Tribune, The Washington Post and Woman's World.

A singer/songwriter living in Nashville, Tennessee, Jenni uses both music and humor in her outreach efforts to help those touched by eating disorders. She is, she says, "single in the city," enjoying a life she considers a gift to be treasured.
