Portia DeGeneres has revealed in an Oprah Winfrey interview, how her weight plummeted to 37kg during the worst stages of her eating disorder.
She described how almost felt “proud” of the self control it took to survive on just 300 calories a day and felt compelled to run off chewing gum.
The 37-year-old is promoting her autobiography Unbearable Lightness: A Story of Loss and Gain. In it, she says it was her wife Ellen DeGeneres who eventually helped her recover from her eating disorder.
