Jacenko explained that her diet mainly consisted mostly of sashimi sushi and green juices at the time.
“If I was hungry, I would go to bed if I was at home to stop myself going to the fridge. I was obsessed, unhealthily obsessed,” she recalled.
But while Jacenko was in a “really bad place”, she says she received positive reinforcement from fans after posting post-workout selfies on Instagram.
“It's funny how when people say you are looking "great" even though you are well on your way to being skin and bone that you buy into it and keep trying to get slimmer!” she told The Daily Mail.
“I was in a really bad place and while I had a four-pack which, I thought, was fantastic, realistically I was starving myself.”
But now, Jacenko says she has now reevaluated her lifestyle choices and is at a “much healthier weight” and keeping a “balanced gym and eating regime”.
