Before teen Portia de Rossi had her eating disorder commence, she started her modeling, and it was so hard that she found it hard to eat anything at all at times. Even at some point, she was down to around 300 calories a day.

That was how she was feeding. And ever since she was 12 years of age, she would go to the extent of starving herself daily and later bingeing after her work is over. But that was the type of diet she lived with every time she feels she needs to shed some weight; she revealed this on Good Morning America in the year 2010. And from that age, she learned that all that she looked like was of high importance than what she had in mind, what she always does, and who she was.

The thing is she thought that her appearance was essential and is still going to make her insecure. There will always be a girl with a fresh face and a thin shape.

From these celebrities, we can see that this food disorder is not only for people who are possibly with low influence or are not wealthier. It can be deduced that even the so-called celebrities can be ashamed of their body structure, especially with excess fat in their body, causing them shame and making them feel bad about themselves. The thing about this disorder is that it can be corrected by thinking of starving yourself because that can cause some other internal diseases.

So it will be better to do well research to find out how some of these celebrities fought their cause and finally assume a slimmer and more confident given body shape.

Anyone can be encountered a disorder called Anorexia but knowing and building up your confidence about your body shape will help you fight this disorder. These celebrities have shown that there’s no one that can not face this internal disorder.
