Chubby in childhood, anorexic in her teens, and then obese until age 47, Emily Boller was desperate to find freedom from her struggles with food. In 2008, when she began documenting her weight loss journey as an online art exhibit, she never expected to become an inspirational voice for food addiction recovery to millions.

Today, she combines her personal journey, hard-won wisdom, and practical tips with Joel Fuhrman, M.D.’s teachings to inspire and help others break free from entanglements that sabotage health and well-being. And, as a result of losing a child to suicide, she knows firsthand the impact of trauma and grief on addiction recovery—and how to recover from relapse as well. For anyone desiring long term freedom from food addiction, she can show the way!

Emily has a Bachelor of Arts with Distinction in Fine Arts from Purdue University and certificate completions in Basic Nutrition and The Science of the Nutritarian Diet from the Nutritarian Education Institute. She has been married to Kurt for 37 years, and together they have raised five children.
