Jacqueline Fernandez reveals ‘Food was her Enemy’

Jacqueline Fernandez has opened up on her struggles with food habits during her younger days.

Speaking to Shilpa Shetty on her new show, Jacqueline shared that she used to punish herself for eating when she was in her 20s.

Shilpa and Jacqueline were talking in the first episode of Shape of You.

When Shilpa Shetty asked if Jacqueline changes her food habits when under stress, Jacqueline said:

“In my 20s I did go through quite a lot of eating issues. A lot.

“It happened because of my pageant days, I did not realise then but to be appearing on an international platform at the age of 19.

“That is when the pressure really got to me, I did not know how to handle it.

“Food became the enemy. That then continued in my 20s and continued being in front of the camera.”

Jacqueline added: “Like how I am going to look in front of the camera.

“It was like you would punish yourself for eating. But, I was blessed that I was able to overcome it. Slowly, it took time.
