Actor and musician Jordan Fisher recently opened up about his struggle with an eating disorder. The diagnosis came during his wife's pregnancy when it became challenging for him to eat due to the magnitude of the situation.

In a candid interview with "The Drew Barrymore Show," Fisher shared how he always wanted to be a father and knew that he was about to embark on the biggest and best project of his life with his partner. However, he was struggling to eat and had been diagnosed with an eating disorder he didn't know he had.

Fisher, who won season 25 of "Dancing with the Stars," revealed that he lost 30lbs in total but did not speak out about his struggles until his interview with Drew Barrymore. He shared that his last few months of a work contract were physically challenging, but he managed to navigate his way out of his struggles and is now much stronger.

Eating disorders affect people of all ages, genders, and backgrounds. It's a serious mental illness that can have severe physical consequences, and seeking help is crucial. Fisher's story highlights the importance of recognizing the signs and symptoms of eating disorders and seeking professional help.

Recovery from an eating disorder is possible, and it's essential to have a strong support system. The journey to recovery may not be easy, but it's worth it. If you or someone you know is struggling with an eating disorder, don't hesitate to reach out for help. You are not alone.
