Janet Jackson has had a long struggle with food and recently admitted that she would often turn to food for comfort.
“Sometimes even healthy food. But too much. I could very easily pick myself apart. That’s what I did," Jackson said.
Her struggle with body image began at a very young age. In fact, back when Jackson was just 11-years-old and starring on Good Times, she was asked to lose weight. Wardrobe had even bound her chest down, saying she developed too early. But nowadays, Jackson is healthy and back in great shape.
"It’s a matter of maintenance and keeping the weight off. My success plan was to feel good about myself and be healthy.”
Earlier this week, it was revealed that Jackson is the new face of dieting company, NutriSystem.
