ANOREXIA Understand it. Beat it. I did it twice, now let me tell you how.
the story

Want to know how anorexia feels like?

It is not a phase, a diet, a trend, or a choice. It is a disorder. One which people like me, who have struggled with anorexia, hate. We are not okay and we don’t know how to show the world otherwise. People with anorexia are dying literally every day. If you want to defeat anorexia, you have to understand it, just like all the other “demons”. How to better understand it than to listen to someone who has faced it? I initially wrote this book to clear my mind, share my experiences, and express my emotions. However, readers convinced me that I’ve written an amazing book that can help people understand anorexia, which is the first step towards a better future, and that’s why I’ll try to share it with as many as possible.

Overview of the book

This is my story. A story of nine long years in a constant state of guilt and hate. Within this story are gathered all the thoughts that were stuck in my head every hour of every day. I felt it necessary to go out and exercise, even though I knew I would faint as a result. Those were nine years of lies. I told myself that the skinner I’d be, the happier I’d become. Nine years until I finally had my breakthrough, when I realized what nonsense all this truly is.

We want to expand this project worldwide so that we can tell my story to as many people as possible. We want to help people understand that anorexia and other eating disorders are a big problem, and we want you to understand that you can overcome your problems if you never give up and do everything in your power to make your life better for yourself and for others.

Book Author

Today, I am a 26-year-old girl and I live a life I used to only dream about: a small cozy little apartment, a little four-legged friend, and a boyfriend, who is a keeper. Together, we strive to better ourselves and take on the highest mountain tops of Slovenia. Those smallest little pieces of Earth, where we find our happiness again and again, escaping from our 8-hour per day jobs. All these wonderful days, passing too quickly, became part of my lifestyle and pushed my past into a distant memory. A memory that doesn’t seem to be a part of my life, but just another story. It feels like I haven’t written my book, but only read it. But it all happened to me. Nine years of anorexia has left many negative emotions and feelings inside of me, and I would never want this to happen to any child, ever. But I still try to look at this experience with a positive attitude, because, no matter how you spin it, it made me into the person I am today. I believe and hope to help many others, just because of this experience. Since I best express myself by writing things on a piece of paper, I found the best way to tell my story is by writing a book.

Žiga Kranjec

Marketing

Hi! My name is Žiga Kranjec and I’m the brother of one of the best writers in the world. 😛 I’m 25 years old and I’m finishing my master’s degree in a business school here in Slovenia. I’m studying entrepreneurship and innovation, which I found to be my passion. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been very excited about new opportunities, knowledge, and experiences. I love to work with people full of energy and enthusiasm, and that’s why I’m always trying to work in innovative start-ups with an amazing atmosphere.

Experiences:

I have years of experiences with online marketing, which I earned working for one of the best online marketing companies in Slovenia. I have a lot of experience in the field of search engine optimization as well as web development.

I love entrepreneurship and I really believe that money isn’t the best foundation for building a successful start-up – in my opinion, hard work and good teamwork are the key to success. I love to help other people and I’m always prepared to listen to opinions of others, because I believe that listening is the best way to learn and grow.

Polona Bartol

Photographer

Who am I? I am a woman with plenty of emotions, which give me my direction, my purpose. I am a mother facing the challenges of parenting every day. I am a photographer that loves capturing the diverse life stories, experiences, and portraits of people through the camera lens. Because I believe that every gaze, gesture, or touch tells more than a thousand words, I seek them out, hoping to encourage the spontaneity of the moment. I draw my creative energy from nature. I find my inner peace in the sounds of waves, and my inspiration, wonderment, and gratitude in the silence of the mountaintops.
