Review:

“Kimber’s courageous memoir fills a gap in the literature, exposing both the preoccupied suffering of an eating disorder and the healing that occurs when she satiates her spiritual hunger with the practice of yoga. As a therapist who works extensively with these issues, I highly recommend Full to anyone struggling with an eating disorder or who desires to strengthen their relationship to food, body, and self.”
—Signe Darpinian, author of Knock Out Dieting

“If you can read only one memoir about eating disorder recovery, read Full. Kimber’s writing is generously dosed with humor and wisdom, filled with marvelous insight, and never shies away from the difficulty of the undertaking. She brings the struggle and recovery alive on the page and makes it feel possible for all of us.”
—Tamara Gerlach, author of Cultivating Radiance

Step away from the scale, ditch the measuring tape, and chuck the BMI chart. Then settle in with a cup of tea and let Kimber guide you on her humorous and touching journey to leave diet talk behind and learn to listen to and love her body. Full is a nourishing feast for the soul.”
Linda Bacon, PhD, coauthor of Body Respect

Full is an exceptionally raw and honest sharing of Kimber Simpkins’s struggle with anorexia, body image, and relationship with food, and how she overcame her negative thinking and found freedom and happiness within her body. I could relate to so much of what she wrote. If you have ever struggled with food or body image issues, I recommend Kimber’s book as an insightful, inspiring resource for you!” 
Dina Proctor, author of Madly Chasing Peace


Kimber Simpkins is an authentic force for change on this planet, and this book is her torch. She leads the way in a new generation of women committed to removing the veil of shame and secrecy around our relationship to our body, food, and feelings. This book resonated with me on a deep level as a woman and a spiritual practitioner. I highly recommend Kimber's book for any woman who is ready to let down the burden of food and self-esteem issues. It has the potential to act as a catalytic force toward healing, and ultimately to living a more authentic life.”
Katie Silcox, author of Healthy, Happy, Sexy


There is a hunger in all of us for satisfaction, and in this beautiful book we follow Kimber on her Odyssey through the actual hunger of the body, only to discover that it lives in the mind as well. This is a very moving, and often funny, story about Kimber’s struggles with her inner anorexic’; a story which points all of us toward healing. Full is stuffed with wit and wisdom.” 
Wes Scoop” Nisker

As insightful for the person with an eating disorder or the clinician, Full gets you inside the underpinnings of the illness and its challenging recovery. Ms. Simpkins astutely walks you through her successful integration of opposite parts of her Self with passion and humor. A testimony to the power of imagination and a must-read for everyone who desires to love his or her body for what it is.”
Eric Bottino, clinician at the Young Adult and Family Center’s eating disorder program at the University of California, San Francisco

In Full, Kimber Simpkins opens her heart and offers her experience in an honest and heartfelt memoir. It will serve as a support and guide for all those who feel less than good enough. Anytime you pick up Full, you will be reminded that you are in good company on the path.”
Sharon Salzberg, cofounder of the Insight Meditation Society in Barre, MA, and author of Real Happiness and Real Happiness at Work

Full beautifully illustrates that anorexia is starvation of the soul as well as the body. The author portrays with hope and humor the labyrinthine path of recovery from an eating disorder, one that ultimately must include a loving partnership with one’s own body.”
Tamara Traeder, LMFT, LPCC

“I fell in love with Full’s honesty and its humor. Kimber writes with a passion conveying her experiences intimately. I felt her presence, her struggles, and her success as if she were sitting next to me whispering into my ear! This book is certain to be a refuge and bible for all women struggling with body image.”
—Angela Farmer, world-renowned yoga teacher
