James Aspey opens up about his experience with bulimia in this PBN video – calling it the ‘biggest battle’ of his life.

The Australian activist says he started overeating when steroids he was taking during his cancer treatment left him permanently hungry.

Overeating

He adds: “I just ate and ate and ate. There was no satiating my appetite.

“I put on about 60lb (25kg) during this time so quickly that the skin on my sides ripped and it bled.

“This led me down a path of binge eating.”
