“I wrestled with bulimia all through college and for two years after that,” Couric said during a segment of her show that will air Monday. “And I know this rigidity, this feeling that if you eat one thing that’s wrong, you’re full of self-loathing and then you punish yourself, whether it’s one cookie or a stick of gum that isn’t sugarless, that I would sometimes beat myself up for that.”

The episode focuses on musician and fellow eating disorder survivor Demi Lovato, who checked into rehab two years ago for “emotional and physical issues.”

“I remember being 3 years old in a diaper and rubbing my hand over my stomach,” Lovato says during the program. “I remember thinking in my head ‘I wonder if one day this will ever be flat?’”
