Julianne Hough is getting candid about her past diet and exercise habits — and confessed she was "killing herself" to be thin during her teen years.
"I love my shape [now] because I feel strong and fit, and that makes me feel confident. When I look at pictures of myself when I was 19, my body was bangin', but I was killing myself,” the former Dancing With the Stars pro, 28, recently told Shape magazine.

“I was working out two and a half hours a day and eating the bare minimum to survive. I was so miserable. I wasn't healthy. To be honest, I looked like a kid. Now I'm embracing the fact that I'm a woman with curves," she continued.
