Victoria Hemdorff Schapiro

F*ck restrictions and your mom too

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).

    . I am pretty enough to fuck, just not pretty enough to date.

    Ah, perfect timing. Another guy who exploited you for sex. Another failed relationship for the books. Another guy to lower your standards. It’s sad to think that I’d probably cry tears of joy if a man were to give me flowers. Or even just a forehead kiss

    Men just use us for sex 😐
