Taran's History With Binge Eating
Taran started working out in college with her roommates and friends, and it was around this time that she said she started developing very unhealthy eating patterns and thoughts about food. "I can't pinpoint the exact moment or timeframe that I started binge eating because I honestly didn't know that it had a name. I just knew that if I was experiencing any emotion — happiness, sadness, joy, sorrow — I was going out and bingeing," Taran said. This went on for over a decade, unfortunately, but she shared that "starting my weight-loss journey has helped me grasp onto its reins and work on it daily."
