'I spent my entire life being obsessed with dieting,' she tells this week's issue (on stands now). 'Bingeing and then fasting or starving. Forbidding everything. That's how I used to be: up and down 5 pounds every single day, to the extremes. My metabolism was totally wrecked.'
Among the '5,000 diets' Frankel tried: Atkins, the Scarsdale diet, the Beverly Hills diet, and the cabbage-soup diet."
