Reality show star Bethenny Frankel recently admitted that she engaged in a vicious cycle of binging and purging from the age of eight well into her thirties.
“I spent my entire life being obsessed with dieting. Bingeing and then fasting or starving. Forbidding everything. That’s how I used to be: up and down 5 pounds every single day, to the extremes. My metabolism was totally wrecked,” Frankel told US Weekly.
Frankel said that becoming a mother helped her reevaluate her fixation on diet and exercise and led to her creation of SkinnyGirl, an eating plan that promotes a moderate approach to weight control.
