This is the ONLY article I could find on Rebecca Breed’s weight loss and diet. I was trying to find some photos of Rebecca when she was 14 but couldn’t. It would be interesting to see how much weight she has lost. She definitely looks very healthy now!
She may be only 22, but Rebecca Breeds has a glow that comes not just from a healthy lifestyle but also from finding peace within herself.
As an overweight teen, she came close to developing an eating disorder. She says: ‘I was 14 and I’d come home from a day of being called Fatty. I had my head over the toilet and was about to go to extreme measures. But, in a moment of divine inspiration, I realised I might be a stick figure at 18, but I saw myself hollowing out emotionally and physically if I went down that road.’
In a remarkable confession, Rebecca says she chose a healthier path after having a vision of herself with an eating disorder. She recalls: ‘I saw myself in hospital, leaning on a drip. It was like a warning, and instead I chose to be happy with who I am.’
Rebecca now walks most days, cycles, does Pilates and eats well – although she does treat herself to licorice. She says she knows a lot of girls look up to her 16-year-old Home And Away character Ruby, so she is determined
to be a good role model.
‘Insecurity is ugly,’ she says. ‘I want girls to know that being confident in your own skin is what makes you attractive.’
