Numerous celebrities deal with eating disorders and it seems that Alanis Morissette is one of them. The famous star decided to share her experience and revealed how she managed to overcome her eating issues.
The popular star revealed during an interview with Women’s Health Magazine that she suffered from abnormal eating habits starting with a young age. The singer said that eating disorders are extremely difficult to deal with, maybe even more difficult than drug or alcohol abuse.
“We know with alcohol, you just don’t drink it and don’t go to a bar. With heroin, you just don’t go near it. Whereas with food, you have to eat, so how can one go from, in my case, bingeing and purging, starving, overeating, the scale going up and down – how can I go from that to a ‘sober’ approach?” she claimed.
However, she gradually started to understand the effects of food on her body and realized that what she ate had the power to heal her and make her feel better. “I’ve noticed allergies that have gone away when I step away from dairy. I’ve noticed when I get the high-nutrient greens, I sleep better. There’s less moodiness. Food is entirely medicine to me,” Alanis revealed.
So, it surely seems that the star is living a healthy, equilibrated lifestyle now and she is extremely happy with the way things are going. Alanis said that the lifestyle she currently has actually gives her the peace of mind that she needs. She managed to create some boundaries that ensure her health and which helped her overcome her eating issues.
The star also confessed that she has a meditation room in her Los Angeles home, which is the perfect place to get the energy that she needs. Alanis revealed that she meditates every morning and this helps her healthy lifestyle. The singer also claimed that she was workaholic and her new lifestyle addresses that issue, as well.
However, this does not mean that the famous singer will no longer focus on her career. In fact, she just announced the release of a special edition of her Jagged Little Pill album in a four-disc collection.
