Tara Costa calls herself a recovering addict, but the substance she abused was food.
Costa wasn't just overeating, she was out of control.
"I used to probably have a pint of ice cream almost every other night, if not more than that," she said. "Not my proudest moments."
Aside from a pint of ice cream, the former plus-size model said she would also devour wings and waffle fries smothered in cheese and gravy.
"That meal alone was probably around 6,000 calories, if not more," Costa said.
