I learned disordered eating at my mother’s knee. Binge and purge diets were commonplace in our home as I grew up.

Kate Moss may have said, “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels” but my mother repeatedly said, “It’s easier to keep the weight off than it is to lose it. That’s why it is so important that you never gain weight.”
