Former American Idol finalist, Katharine McPhee, talks about diet, fitness, overcoming bulimia, and her new healthy lifestyle in the Feb issue of Shape Magazine that hits newsstands today.
On Diet & Exercise:
"The more I focused on my weight, the worse my bulimia got....Now I'm more easygoing. I stopped fighting myself and became more forgiving of my body. Ironically, the weight came off naturally through exercise but no dieting."
On Being Healthy:
"At my last physical, the nurse took my vitals and said, 'Wow, you must be taking care of yourself! Your blood pressure is perfect. You're very healthy,'" she says. "Hearing her say that made me feel better than seeing an 'ideal' number on the scale."
