She Battled Anorexia
In 2019, Amelia discussed how she previously struggled with an eating disorder to Glamour. "When I first started struggling with anorexia, I loved when friends would comment on my weight. I have a distinct memory of running into a friend at the mall, right outside Victoria's Secret. She put her hand on my waist and was like, 'Oh, my God, Amelia, you're so skinny, you need to stop!" I loved those comments. They felt amazing, as psycho as that sounds. It was this feeling that fed my eating disorder," she said.
She Treats Her Hashimoto's Disease Daily
"In the wake of my anorexia, I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's disease, an autoimmune disease that screws with your thyroid," she also told Glamour. "My body was reacting to being starved for so long. With Hashimoto's I'm going to have to take two pills every single morning as soon as I wake up, maybe for the rest of my life. Obviously that's not the worst thing in the world, but it's hard knowing I did this to myself."
She Nourishes Her Body
Amelia now looks at self-care differently. "All of this has made it so important to me to nourish my body. I used to hear all the time, 'Your body is a temple!' but I really didn't care. I didn't care how many nutrients my body was getting," she told Glamour. "Learning about how to nourish my body and how to fuel my body with the foods that make my body happy and energized makes me feel good. Despite all the … hard parts of recovery, that's been a really fascinating part of this journey: I've come out of it with such a different passion for health."
It's All About Confidence
She wishes she could tell her former self that "confidence is the most beautiful trait a person can have," she explained to Glamour. "It transcends weight, and size, and social media filters. When you truly love yourself on the inside, the way you carry yourself is so different. I think that's when the judgment stops—when they realize that nothing they can say about you or your body will make a difference."
She Trains at The Dogpound
Amelia is one of the many stars who trains at The Dogpound, a bicoastal gym boasting strength training and HIIT style workouts.
