Troian Bellisario Opens Up About Eating 300 Calories a Day in Powerful New Essay

Former Pretty Little Liars star Troian Bellisario‘s new project Feed was released to the public in the United States today — and it’s a project that means the world to her.

In a new essay for Lenny Letter, Troian opens up about just how badly she treated her body when she struggled with her eating disorder.

“There is a part of my brain that defies logic,” she writes, “Once, it completely convinced me I should live off 300 calories a day, and at some point, it told me even that was too much. That part of my brain is my disease, and there was a time when it had absolute authority over me.”

She also talks about how though she has recovered, she still struggles.

“It almost killed me, and you can see that even though I have lived in recovery for ten years now, it still finds loads of fun, insidious ways to thwart me to this day. It was a difficult journey finding my way back to health. Through hard introspection, intense medical and mental care, a supportive family, friends, and a patient and loving partner, I survived, which is rare.”

We’re so glad Troian found her way to recovery and that she is opening up about her experiences through her new project.
