Out of the pantry is a self-help book and Ronni Robinson and her journey struggling with disordered eating. Ronni has a big secret, and she is ashamed of how food controls her life. She is a slave to food through emotional eating, binge eating, and unexplainable compulsion to eat more junk food. She relates the stigma to a time where her mother hides cookies from her, and the book then takes you on a journey with Ronni growing up and how she deals with this enormously crucial mental illness.
The book is brutally honest and walks on pervasive thoughts touching on the lightest of emotions and heartbreak. Ronni has to find the strength, courage and daring, in order to fight with this hurdle.
I found the book to be super emotional and lovely to read. Every aspect of the book was genuine and honest. There are rare books written like this letting people know the truth about certain disorders. I admired the author for baring no hidden agenda in writing this book.
It was apparent how dysfunctional families, teen health and body image were all such contributing factors to the cause. I recommend this book to anyone facing the same problem and would like to know about the topic.
