Katie Couric confesses she 'wrestled with bulimia' for years9/24/2012
We may have thought, after seeing her go through colonoscopies and mammograms, that we knew Katie Couric inside and out, but she's been hiding a secret. The veteran newswoman discloses in an interview with Demi Lovato today that, in her 20s, she, like Lovato, struggled with an eating disorder. "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," she said. Couric said she recovered when she was 24 with a therapist's help. We hope her disclosure will help others. [Source]
