YouTuber Jazz Jennings Reveals Her ‘Binge-Eating Disorder’ Battle

YouTuber Jazz Jennings opened up about her substantial amount of weight gain and got candid about her eating disorder.

The 20-year-old influencer took to Instagram on Saturday and updated her 1 million followers with her before and after photo.

“As many of you have noticed, over the past few years, I have gained a substantial amount of weight,” she captioned. “I suffer from binge-eating disorder, a disease in which I’m not only addicted to food, but I eat it in large quantities. My binging, along with an increased appetite I experience from some of the meds I’m on, has caused me to gain almost 100 pounds in a little less than 2 years.”

“I’m posting this photo because it’s time for me to address my weight gain and hold myself accountable,” she added. “I’m ready to change my ways; I’ve been saying I’m ready to turn over a new leaf, but I’m running out of trees now.”

Jazz Jennings Ready To Take the Initiative

“I’m ready to take the initiative and create positive changes when it comes to my health and body,” she wrote. I have a fabulous team supporting me, both professionals and family/friends, but at the end of the day, I have to be the one committed toward bettering myself.”

“I know I have the power in me to lose the weight, and I intend on sharing my progress with all of you. Love you all, and thanks for understanding the battle I’m fighting to win,” Jennings concluded.

Jennings has been sharing updates regarding her life including her journey being transgender.

Talks About Mental Health

In a new interview with Variety, the YouTube star spoke about her reality show and why she took a break in 2019.

“I needed that break for my mental health and wellness, honestly. But I have had that time to really use self-care to boost myself up and evolve and grow as a person,” she told the magazine. “I still have so much more to go, but I just feel like I’m moving in the right direction.”

“Definitely in the past, I was the only kid or teenager who was transgender and so public,” she expressed. “But now there’s a lot of different transgender teenagers out there who are sharing their stories. It’s really cool to see that shift, that there are some new people out there.”

“I am ecstatic to announce that there is going to be a season 7 on I Am Jazz. I am so thrilled, I am so excited to share the rest of my adventure, my journey of life with you all. And hopefully, I can continue making an educational experience my sharing by story,” she said.
