Although, the RAW Women’s Champion’s life has been met with struggles. In particular, she recalled having an eating disorder and subsequently bulimia while speaking with On The Grind.
“I used to have a very unhealthy relationship with food,” said Belair. “When I was in high school, I ran track.”
“I was very muscular. The one thing people would tell me would help me run faster is if you end up losing weight.”
“So, I just took it to a whole other level. I ended up struggling with bulimia.”
“Athletic scholarship, and going to college, and I got hurt, and I decided, ‘okay, I don’t wanna do this anymore. I wanna try to stop struggling with bulimia.”
“I ended up then developing BED, binge eating disorder, where I was just binge eating. You know, fast forward to I got into CrossFit and for the first time I saw these women that had these big beautiful muscles.”
“They were doing amazing things with their bodies. And I was finally in this environment where how my body was naturally made, it was for a good thing.”
