Ginger Zee Opens Up About Anorexia Battle Before ‘DWTS’ Finale

Ginger even went to therapy and also an in-patient treatment center. She explained why they did this for her.

“It was to scare me, basically. There were girls who were on their way to death. ‘That one will die tomorrow,’ she’d say. It was shocking and it didn’t make me better right away but I knew I had the great support of my family and the fear factor was there.”

Ginger explained that her stepfather is a counselor, and he really helped her through all of it. Zee said that he taught her about nutrition and self-love. Ginger actually got obsessed with working out for a bit after she learned about how calories in vs. calories out works, but she was able to find balance. Things are looking really good for Ginger Zee right now.
