TLC’s What Not to Wear fashion guru Stacy London reveals in an upcoming magazine spread that she once suffered from anorexia and binge eating.
The TV star sat down for an interview with People to discuss her dark past and how she overcame it.
In her early 20s, London became obsessed with looking perfect. “I felt like I’d never had a serious boyfriend and I really wanted to be attractive,” she said. After partaking in extreme dieting measures, London quickly dropped down to 90 lbs., a shockingly low number especially for her 5’7” frame.
After being hospitalized, London began eating again. But this time, her eating disorder took a different turn. After one year of covering her insecurities with food, the star had reached a surprising 180 lbs.
According to the Huffington Post, London decided to reveal her struggles by writing a tell-all book, titledThe Truth About Style, in order to help other young women who may struggle with the same kind of issues.
“When you can talk about something and shine light on it, you’re obliterating shame,” the fashionista said.
