Anyone who’s ever seen Bethenny Frankel in person KNOWS that she took dieting a bit too far. Remember, the camera puts on 10 pounds and when I tell you that woman was thin, it’s an understatement. I interviewed her several years ago and I just couldn’t BELIEVE how frail she looked.
Today, we have a different Bethenny. The new mom has taken control of her life and eating habits and who’s life purpose is to help others do the same. The reality star / author admitted to Us Weekly that it took many, many years to get to this point:
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.”
Among the “5,000 diets” Frankel tried: Atkins, the Scarsdale diet, the Beverly Hills diet, and the cabbage-soup diet.
“I would go buy magazines just to see what the new diet was and rip it out,” admits the star, who also battled an addiction to exercise.
I’m happy to hear Bethenny opening up about her struggles as I am sure many of her fans are currently in the same boat. Perhaps her story will heal another.
