Actress Dana Delaney struggled with anorexia in her teenage years, which she claims ruined her acting career.
“When I was a teenager and in my 20s, I had eating issues,” she said.
“I binged, I starved. I was one step away from anorexia — a piece of toast and an apple would be all I’d eat in a day.
“My life got interesting and I stopped focusing on eating.
“Part of it was doing China Beach. I needed to have energy to work those long hours, and so I started eating more healthily.”
“I don’t like meat, so I don’t eat it.
“I just prefer vegetables, tofu and fish. And recently, I was told by my endocrinologist that I am gluten intolerant. I’m not supposed to eat bread or pasta, which is really hard when you don’t eat meat. But I’m trying gluten-free pasta and bread.
“I have a piece of dark chocolate every day as my little reward. I love Vosges Haut-Chocolat – oh my God, they have the most delicious flavors!”
