Today, Portia is happy, healthy—and done with treadmills. Saying that she's "allergic to exercise" now, Portia prefers to stay fit by doing activities she loves, like walking her dogs. She has also overcome her anorexia and chronic dieting. She says she did this by putting an end to food restriction.

"That really is the only way that food loses its power over you," Portia says. "If you can have something every day, as much as you want, you tend not to want it as much anymore. And after a period of time, you actually eat what you body needs, you eat what makes you happy and you don't think about food ever again."
