Kat Gave Up Dieting, Disordered Eating Habits, and 2-a-Day Workouts to Focus on Her Health

PopSugar Logo By Jenny Sugar of PopSugar | Slide 3 of 11: "I definitely had some pretty intense disordered eating," Kat explained. During the day she would stay totally "on plan." She'd eat a bowl of oatmeal or a banana and peanut butter for breakfast, and a salad, a turkey sandwich, or a South Beach Diet pre-prepared meal for lunch. And for dinner she pretty much always had some sort of protein, a veggie, a salad, and a grain.  "But at night, when my family would go to bed, I'd sneak into the pantry and gather every candy, cookie, chip, cracker, and ice cream I could find, spread it all out on my bed, and stuff my face while watching Friends reruns," Kat said. Kat would also attempt two-a-day workouts whenever she could. "I would do a workout DVD in the morning, and then hit the treadmill at the gym after school, plus whatever dance classes I was taking at the time."
