“I’d pack my little lunch with my three raspberries, my celery stick. I was just trying, I realize now, to feel in control of myself when I felt so out of control of everything else,” she said.

Although she revealed that she has a much healthier relationship with food now, she still has feelings of body dysmorphia, explaining: “I can barely look in the mirror to this day because of that period in my life.”
