    Battling Anorexia & Bulimia

    Hearing the details of actress Portia De Rossi eating disorder is shocking to me as she reveals eating a maximum of 150 calories a day at one point. I too struggle with weight issues and I’m sure like many have counted their daily in take. I struggle with just eating 1,200 calories. Oprah asks how was it going through eating disorders on TV and Portia says, “It’s actually easy to hide an eating disorder.”

    This next quote I pulled from the show is beautiful, and I think many, many people struggle with their likeness. “Sometimes the way you see yourself is not how the world sees you.” Portia mentions how she should try to accept herself because her wife Ellen does. Oprah points out she met the love of her life Ellen at her heaviest weight. After hearing Portia talk about her feelings and experiences, I feel I can most identify with her statement on chronic dieting. “Living your entire life never feeling good enough about your body , always feeling like if you weighed a little less some how you’d be happier, life would be better is a horrible way to live.” ¬†Portia says she found food looses power when you don’t restrict any food or portion size.
