Katie Couric Reveals Past Struggles With Bulimia

Katie Couric Reveals Past Struggles With Bulimia

Katie Couric has revealed that she battled with the eating disorder bulimia in her early 20s. The beloved host revealed the news during a recent interview with current "X-Factor" judge Demi Lovato, who had battled eating disorders in recent years.

"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's wrong, you're full of self-loathing and then you punish yourself, whether it's one cookie or a stick of gum that isn't sugarless, that I would sometimes beat myself up for that," Couric said in the interview.

She added that she eventually overcame her bulimia struggle with the help of a therapist:

"How do you have a healthy relationship with food, and say, 'You know what, I can have one cookie and it's okay?' That is such a huge thing for people who wrestle with this," she adds.
