She struggled with an eating disorder during high school, college, and when she started working in Hollywood, and she called her relationship with food anxiety-producing. Her fear and avoidance of carbs specifically led her to binge, which fueled her desire to purge.
"I was always punishing myself. I was even anxious about healthy food," she told Shape. "I was consumed with the details of what I was eating, and I always felt as if I was doing something wrong."
About a year ago, she started seeing a therapist and a nutritionist that she said "cured" her anxieties, and especially her fear of carbs. Camila learned that having a balanced diet will make her the healthiest in the long-run. "The voices in my head never completely go away. They're just way quieter now."
Camila's been open about her struggle on social media, and she said that while it was a tough decision to make to share that with the world, she's happy she did.
"I realized that I have this platform, and young women and men who look up to me, and there is a tremendous power to do something positive with it," she said. "It was definitely a very vulnerable thing to put that out there to almost 12 million people on social media. But that's who I am. That's me being authentically myself."
