"I couldn't stop exercising…I would be on display again, and all I could think about was my body, my body, my body…I doubled down on my already over-the-top exercise routine. I cut out carbs, I ran and I biked and I worked out on every machine imaginable." However, when preparing for her role in G.I. Jane, Moore wrote that she had to stop. "I had reached my limit," she said. 'When I got home to Idaho, I had an epiphany in the shower one day: I just need to be my natural size." Moore gave up hard exercising, and started embracing her body.
