Distorted body image is a growing concern amongst women in educated, often affluent communities, fuelled by a public obsession with the perfect body and a skewed definition of what it means to look fit, healthy and/or beautiful. Sometimes that distortion results in obviously unhealthy behaviour, but, disturbingly, it can also manifest as an over-zealous focus on health and fitness. 'Fit not healthy' is the story of how one woman's determination to be lean, fit and healthy took her to the brink of infertility and death and how she pulled back just in time to regain her health and perspective and start a family. It is Vanessa Alford's hope that her story can save at least one woman from herself.
