Description
Aimee Liu discusses her book, “Gaining.” She begins by talking about her own past as a teenager suffering from anorexia and how she thought that she had recovered.

She describes some stories in the book about people who have recovered. Liu discusses how 25% of all eating disorder cases are in men.
