Angela reveals that she once struggled with anorexia. Today, she measures out exact portion sizes at mealtime and exercises every day...sometimes twice a day. Taylor mimics her mother's exercise routine at home.

Dr. Robin urges Angela to accept some responsibility for her daughter's obsessive behavior. "The part that was missing for me is that you were talking about school impacting her but not you," Dr. Robin says.
