Chisholmrecalled, “I joined the Spice Girls when I was 20, and it was an insane time. I developed an eating disorder."

 

She explained, "I was in the spotlight, being photographed constantly, and I started to become self-conscious of my body image."

 

Chisholm says that she was in denial about her condition “for a long time” but wanted to get better and underwent multiple forms of therapy to help overcome her issues with food. Today she has a healthy relationship with food.
