I had an eating disorder for

I had an eating disorder for almost 10 years. I starved, binged, purged and tried every single diet possible.
I now have complete recovery from all eating disorders and have not had a binge, purge or starved myself in years.
What I had to do was let go of all of the controlling behavior - dieting mentality, laxatives, purging, reading weight loss books, etc.

I eat whatever I want - and I only eat when I am hungry.
