The newest Real Housewife of New York City Jules Wainstein is revealing she’s actually happy that Bethenny Frankel called her out on her previous eating disorder.
â€œI believe that secrets keep you sick,â€ Wainstein insisted in the new issue of People. â€œWhen your friends are aware what behavior to look for, it helps. Itâ€™s like letting go.â€
Jules explains she started battling anorexia when she was just 17 years-old. â€œI would make a list of things that I would eat and add up every meal, every calorie,â€ she explained, adding she used to limit her meals to a paltry 800-1000 calories a day.
Wainstein revealed she dropped down to a shocking 80 pounds during those days… â€œI had no energy,â€ she said. â€œI was depressed, I slept a lot.â€
Jules finally sought out help at the age of 23, after she had switched from anorexic to bulimic while attending college.
â€œI gained weight,â€ she said about finally getting control of her health. â€œYou start to appreciate life and your body. It was incredible.â€
â€œItâ€™s a lot of work to be healthy coming from an eating disorder, but I feel really lucky.â€
