Gary Grahl is handsome, popular, and his athletic abilities have attracted the attention of the big leagues… that was until a shaming inner-voice convinced him to be ever thinner. His out-of-control compulsion to exercise and starve himself led to multiple hospitalizations, and a life and death battle to win control over the pervasive and dangerous compulsion. Skinny Boy is a powerful story showing how to win the internal battle between mind and body, and triumph over the out-of-control thoughts and feelings common in many of us.
