Nicole Richie and other celebs with eating disorders 

As previously reported, February is National Eating Disorders Month, a time when the CDC is urging the nearly 20 million women and 10 million men who are suffering or have suffered from a clinically significant eating disorder in the United States to get help.

Like a number of women in Hollywood Nicole Richie (pictured above) suffered from anorexia nervosa and starved herself down to a nearly skeletal frame. Others, however, have problems with bulimia nervosa and others struggle with emotional or binge eating.

We’ve compiled a list of celebs who’ve either battled an eating disorder publicly or spoken out on their dire issues with food.
