    Except that he can't seem to do the job outside of his home, either.

    I know very little about Dr. Drew, and even less about anorexia, but I remember hearing him say on his CNN show that he is addicted to exercising. He and his wife sound pretty superficial.

    I find his ch-chi's distracting. Men in their 50s/60s don't usually have that kind of muscle mass without some kind of help.

    I find it strange that someone who is clearly doing so much upper-body work isn't tightening up his midsection.

    My dad had pecs and arms like this in his 50's and 60's and he doesn't take anything. He's 70 now and the chest is a tad smaller, but he's still got the guns. But he lifts weights 3-4x a week and runs daily. He's got a slimmer midsection than Drew here. In fact, if I'm in half as good shape as either of my parents when I reach their age I will be satisfied.

    He looks to have some fairly natural/genetic definition going on (look at the sons), however just be cause he works out/lifts weights doesn't mean that he also watches his diet, especially in a home with food issues...

    I agree about the diet. He has muscle mass but a layer of fat over it. Not that he is fat, just a layer hiding some of his work.

    I'm glad the girl has found her voice. And I'm that she called out her mother.

    Now that I think about it, this is a fairly common phenomenon in my gym -- guys that are very muscular and strong - way more than me. But seem to have a gut despite all their work. However, I don't know why someone would work so hard on one aspect of their body and then sort of sabotage it by not doing something about the other parts.

    i just assume it means that mr drew is not so watchful about his diet. but his physique still looks fine.

    anyhoo, feel bad for the daughter, having anorexia cannot be so easy. sorry it is so prevalent among HS girls.

    I thought that I was pretty well informed on nutrition & stuff until I (needed to) set myself a goal to lose some serious weight - that I hadn't really realised was an issue.
    I am better now but it's very hard and one has to be vigilant all the time to avoid hidden sugars, etc....

    Paulina Pinsky, the daughter of TV’s Dr. Drew Pinsky, has opened up about her seven-year battle with anorexia and bulimia in a series of brutally honest blog posts reports The New York Post.


    The Barnard College junior wrote on the Columbia Daily Spectator’s Web site that she struggled while training as an ice skater and felt pressure from others — including her mom, Susan — to be perfect. She said in a November 2013 post: “My ability to listen to my mother . . . had disappeared when I had hit rock bottom four months prior and had put myself into therapy. Purging eight times in one day to cope with the emotional stress of being home during spring break had finally scared me enough to take action.”


    Paulina, 21, describes how she admitted to her mom during a car ride, “I’ve been throwing up since the seventh grade.” She continued, “After a silence that lasted far too long, she responded, ‘Well, get your teeth checked.’


    She said the move helped them forge a closer bond, and she realized her mother “needed me to be perfect . . . I was the pretty blond girl who was a cheerleader and an ice skater. I got good grades, had a boyfriend, and was thin . . . But I was suffering under the weight of ‘perfection’ in a way that even I didn’t completely understand.”


    In an online essay last year for the website Endangered Bodies, Paulina recalled a discussion about Kim Kardashian’s pregnancy around the family dinner table.


    “I hadn’t even completed my thought about how disgusting I found the media’s emphasis on her weight gain . . . before my mother interrupted me: ‘Yeah. She got -really fat.’ I . . . looked at my father . . . he just mumbled his medical opinion under his breath, saying, ‘You know, it’s very unhealthy for the baby to gain that much weight. Could be eclampsia.’ ”


    Paulina who is hosting a Body Positivity Week at college proudly added, “I am a year and a half into recovery after a seven-year battle with bulimia and anorexia, and this spectacle makes me furious . . . This public shaming is making the world a harder place to live in.”
