Australian actress Teresa Palmer has opened up about the “wasted” years she spent obsessing about her body image and being overly controlling about her diet.

Expecting her first child to her fiancé, US actor/director Mark Webber, in February, theWarm Bodies star says her pregnancy has helped her to move past the negative body image issues that formerly ruled her life.

“A few years ago I was exercising so much, and I just wasn’t nourishing my body in the right way,” Palmer, 27, reveals in WHO magazine’s Body Issue, out now. “I used to be incredibly militant about the food that I ate. I looked great on the outside but I wasn’t healthy on the inside. To think that three years ago I was in this place where I was so skinny that I couldn’t have gotten pregnant if I tried.”
