She is known for steely determination, but just like the rest of us, Katie Couric suffers from insecurities.
In a surprisingly frank admission, the 55-year-old admits that she suffered from bulimia in her early 20s.
The TV star makes the revelation on today’s edition of her daytime show, according to the New York Post.
“I wrestled with bulimia all through college and for two years after that,” Couric says while talking to Demi Lovato, who has had her own issues.
“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.”
According to the New York Post, Couric overcame her struggle with the eating disorder by seeing a therapist.
