Crystal Renn's new book 'Hungry' details the difficulty and setbacks she suffered as a result of anorexia, wherein she suffered heart palpitation, balding as her hair fell out, excessive water retention, and the loss of her menstrual cycle as she struggled to lose the extra weight and fit into the "proper" modeling profile.
The voluptuous model says she knew she'd hit "rock bottom" when she found herself doing laps in a freezing pool of water at 16 years old - at 5am in the morning of a cold winter day.
Renn says, "I made myself do laps for over an hour; I was screaming and sobbing the whole time. I just had this image of myself on the runway…"
Renn's decision to move into plus-size modeling was supported by her agent as well as photographers, who encouraged her to take on the more suitable role.
She adds embracing her plus-sized figure has set her career on fire, and she now has the confidence she once did not. "People actually want to work with us because we're happy, our individuality is prized. Before I was just another straight-faced lemming, we all looked the same," she said. "I want to see all different shapes and sizes on the runway," Renn added. "And I want the sample size to be a 10. A zero should not be the norm."
