19-year-old Victoria Schapiro takes us behind the scenes of a life with an eating disorder and her Generation Z struggles in this honest, raw, scary, yet hilarious memoir-slash-self-help book.
F*CK RESTRICTIONS — AND YOUR MOM TOO is a story about sex, exercise, addiction, independence, and hope; about how she was taken prisoner in her own life, and how she — finally — managed to escape.
I was 14 years old when I developed an eating disorder. Toxic relationships, hormonal overload, fake boobs on social media, and my mom's Botox obsession riddled me with anxiety, low self-esteem, and distress, which manifested into an eating disorder. This book reveals my journey — and the importance of speaking up about your struggles. I will take you from the first restriction to the years beyond, vividly portraying my battle with addiction and disordered eating.
Written with candor and humor, Victoria’s story is a heartfelt attack on one of the major problems in modern society: diet culture. Her wish is to ignite a belief in you, that you can do the same.
The book is published in an English and a Danish version, since Victoria wrote the original manuscript in English.
VICTORIA SCHAPIRO (2003) was born and raised in Copenhagen. Since 8th grade she has been struggling with a restrictive eating disorder, causing social isolation, depression, and suicidal thoughts. Thanks to professional treatment, Victoria is now happier than she has been in years.
Victoria is a graduate of Niels Brock International Business College. When she is not reading age-inappropriate enemies-to-lovers novels, she can be found in the gym, eating peanut butter, spending time with her family, watching “Shrek” for the 100th -something time or stand-up specials with her mom (they reconciled after the book).
