'You know, I've always been into exercise and fitness. Since I could walk I've been doing all types of sport and at quite high levels (I was quite the tomboy to be honest),' she began.

Brittany admitted she had a skewed idea about what was considered to be healthy and attractive, which culminated in her obsessing over food and exercise.
