Katie Couric Reveals Past Bulimia Battle To Demi Lovato

Katie Couric had Demi Lovato on her show, Katie, recently where the beautiful X Factor judge opened up about her past with eating disorders and body image issues.

Then, Katie revealed a pretty shocking fact about herself… she too has suffered from an eating disorder, more specifically, bulimia.

She said:

“I wrestled with bulimia all through college and for two years after that. And I know this rigidity, this feeling that if you eat one thing that├óΓé¼Γäós wrong, you├óΓé¼Γäóre full of self-loathing and then you punish yourself, whether it├óΓé¼Γäós one cookie or a stick of gum that isn├óΓé¼Γäót sugarless, that I would sometimes beat myself up for that.”

What a painful and traumatic past.

Thankfully, she got over them and is now a healthier person. We hope that others can learn from her story.
