A quote from Kate about her disordered eating:

“I was always the biggest friend, and not seeing myself represented in the media had an effect, because if your body type’s not represented, it’s not celebrated. So I was about 18 when I started yo-yo dieting. From there, I spiraled downward and lost 30 kilograms [66 pounds] in a short amount of time. I was eating about 800 calories a day. I was so obsessed and needed to be in constant calorie deficit, needed to constantly exercise and eat only protein and green vegetables. I would not touch any form of carbohydrates, not even potatoes. Then I went to a couple of doctors who helped me a lot, and I’m living my best life now. I’m not really worried what other people think of me.”
