Trainer Erica Lugo details suffering from eating disorder during ‘Biggest Loser’: ‘I was sick’

'There is a way out. There is help. You are stronger than your ED even when you feel like you aren’t,' she wrote on Instagram.

As a “The Biggest Loser” coach and popular fitness trainer,Erica Lugosometimes reads negative comments on social media. But when she recently saw a message about how “big” she looked, she decided to respond.In an Instagram post from earlier this week, Lugo said that a commenter wrote: “You look big and not portioned. For someone who eats healthy and works out a lot you are big. You might want to not be a health coach.”

https://www.instagram.com/p/CQbrmWxMNhQLugo said she wasn’t bothered by the unsolicited criticism but it gave her an opportunity to address “the elephant in the room.”"Years ago when you saw me on TV, I was sick. I was mentally and emotionally miserable. Physically my body was going down the wrong path even though it was celebrated for being 'small,'" she shared on Instagram."I did everything in my power to remain 'tiny.' I restricted food, I thought about binging and purging and to (be) completely honest I did, YEARS AGO. I would sit in the bathroom while filming and cry. Cry for hours bc the eating disorder thoughts kept telling me 'just purge, it’ll help keep you thin.'”

About seven years ago, Lugo weighed 322 pounds. After she felt too exhausted to get off the couch to play with her son, she started making small changes to become healthier. She began tracking her calories on an app and exercising four days a week. In two years, she lost 160 pounds and gained a love of exercise. She turned that passion into Erica Fit Love, a website to help others on their health journeys. Then in 2018, she was diagnosed with stage 2 papillary thyroid cancer and had her thyroid and 33 lymph nodes removed. Suddenly, she needed to figure out what exercise worked for her. headtopics.com
