Summary
  • "Set in working-class, Irish-American Boston of the fifties and sixties, Starved is a gripping and inspirational coming-of-age story. At the young age of four, Anne McTiernan was left by her mother at a Catholic boarding school where she emotionally and physically starved. After a doctor forced Anne's mother to bring her home, she used physical and verbal abuse to take out her frustrations on a defenseless little girl. Anne transitions from a malnourished state to binge eating to obesity. At age fifteen without the love and support from her family, Anne is forced to take full responsibility for her own life through hard work, undaunted intelligence, and persistence. Today as a leading doctor and researcher on obesity and health, Anne has helped thousands of women improve their relationship with food, but this is not their story. Starved is the story of how Anne helped herself and turned the adversity she encountered as a child into a strength and set of skills that would later help her meet the demands of her career. Anne McTiernan, MD, PhD, is a physician who conducts research on the effects of diet, exercise, and weight loss on cancer and health. Currently, she is a professor at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and the University of Washington Schools of Public Health and Medicine in Seattle, Washington"--
