Diane Keaton Had Bulimia, Ate 20,000 Calories Per Day
65 year-old actress Diane Keaton recently opened up to the press about her horrible struggles with an eating disorder: bulimia, that she dealt with for 5 years. Details from Daily Mail:
On Her Eating Disorder: For breakfast each day, she’d shovel down a dozen buttered corn muffins, three fried eggs with bacon, pancakes and four glasses of chocolate milk. For lunch: three buttered steaks with charbroiled fat on the side, two-and-a-half baked potatoes with sour cream, apple pie and two chocolate sundaes with extra nuts.
Dinner almost defied belief: a bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken, several orders of chips with blue cheese and ketchup, a couple of TV dinners, chocolate-covered almonds, a large bottle of 7Up, a pound of peanut brittle, M&Ms, mango juice, one Sara Lee pound cake, and three frozen banana-cream pies.
Eating and purging around 20,000 calories a day gave Diane heartburn, indigestion, irregular periods, low blood pressure and 26 cavities in her teeth. The psychological effects were arguably worse: she was using food to escape reality.
