Tom Daley Comes Out - Suffering From Anorexia & Bulimia

Tom Daley reveals his private battle with an eating disorder in the build-up to London 2012. Wounded by comments about his weight from his coach Alexei Evangulov, Daley began cutting out carbs, fasting for whole days and getting up early to do fat-burning cardio before breakfast. Guilt and shame haunted his every meal. He welcomed each lost kilogram with a grim sense of pride. If he dared to eat cake, he would make himself sick afterwards.

“I guess there is that stigma around eating disorders that problems with eating only affect women, and it’s just not the case,” insists Daley

Thoughts and prayers.

2012? a decade ago. He looked great this year, very ripped but not emaciated. He has a wall of muscle.

I would wager that every gay Olympian has had an eating disorder at some point.

Now that he's looking for a new career, I guess Tom is going to become a professional attention whore.

Much like Demi Lovato.

Whoever took this must not have liked him. And how much forehead is he covering by brushing his hair forward that much?

R2 Dustin must be nervous about the inevitable post-breakup book.

Don't you have to binge eat for bulimia, thus negating anorexia? I guess denying yourself food until you binge is the anorexia part.
