SAS Australia’s Isabelle Cornish details her harrowing battle with an eating disorder – and admits she’s ‘suffered a lot with body image’

In an interview with The Daily Telegraph on Wednesday, the 27-year-old SAS Australia star admitted the illness took a serious toll on her life. 

‘It definitely affects your whole life, eating disorders are a serious mental health issue and they affect every single part of your life,’ she said.

‘Being in the media or just being a young woman or anyone growing up in this modern world, we can be very influenced about our external image so I suffered a lot with body image. 

‘I had periods where I suffered from an eating disorder on and off. I didn’t know how to deal with my emotions and all the stress and everything, so an eating disorder was kind of my coping mechanism.’

The Nine Perfect Strangers actress said she developed bulimia when she was 18, before briefly entering recovery.

‘When I was super young, like 18, I did have bulimia for a year and then it went away and I was fine for a couple of years and then it came back in a different form,’ she recounted. 

‘It came back like being obsessive compulsive around food, avoiding certain food groups and not eating enough.’ 

Isabelle previously spoke about her battle with an eating disorder in a post on her blog, Isabelle Cornish, entitled: ‘It’s not about the food’.

‘I have worked in the entertainment industry since adolescence,’ she wrote. 

‘Growing and developing during puberty while being in front of the camera sparked my fair share of unwanted feelings and symptoms such as poor body image and unbalanced eating habits.’ 

She added: ‘The highest wisdom I have since learnt is that it’s NOT ABOUT THE FOOD.’
