Hilary Duff Discusses Eating Disorder She Suffered at 17

The 35-year-old actress recently opened up about the eating disorder she had as a teenager. "Because of my career path, I can't help but be like, 'I am on camera, and actresses are skinny.' It was horrifying," Hilary Duff recalled. 

Fortunately, she's since beaten her eating disorder and now has a healthy relationship with her body. "I'm appreciating my health, doing activities that make me feel strong instead of just bettering the outside of my body," she explained. "Spending time with people that make me feel good and share similar views on health and body positivity and getting enough sleep and balance in my diet." Duff became famous after she played Lizzie McGuire in the Disney Chanel series, which ran from 2001 to 2004.  "I'm proud of my body," the actress said. "I've gotten to a place of being peaceful with the changes my body has gone through.
