Outer Banks actress Madelyn Cline reveals past struggles with an eating disorder and over-excising.
In a recent Women’s Health interview, Outer Banks’ Madelyn Cline revealed her experience with eating disorders.
“I think I was around 16 when I started working out a lot,” she told the outlet. “I would wake up every morning at 5 a.m. and I would work out for 30 minutes. It was super rigorous cardio every day.”
Her exercise routine led to cutting calories with the actress only eating six almonds for breakfast.
“It turned into not feeding myself protein and not feeding my body what it needed when I was working out so much,” the 22-year-old continued. “I worked out multiple times during the day. All I knew was I wasn’t achieving a particular body image, and so I was angry. I was harming myself and starving myself in the process of trying to achieve that.”
Eventually, her mother notices and her mother’s advice and support were helpful in her recovery.
“My mom was a wonderful help in that. She would stand there in the mirror with me and we would list out things that I liked about my body,” she explained. “After that repetition those things became solidified in my mind. I like my curves, I like my hips, and after a while, I started to love my body. I became so much happier.”
