Chelsea Handler has had a “terrible relationship” with food for as long as she can remember.
The comedy star has candidly discussed her health and wellbeing in a new interview with Health magazine, and during the chat, and revealed that when she moved to Los Angeles to start her career in her early 20s, she developed an obsession with staying in shape.
“I’ve had a terrible relationship with food. I eat chocolate in the middle of the night. I’m awful. I stand in my kitchen at my refrigerator and eat out of the fridge. I had terrible examples of eating growing up,” Chelsea explained, adding that her mother used to make huge batches of macaroni and cheese for a snack.
“I was all out of sorts when I moved to Los Angeles. I’ve basically experimented with every eating disorder there is. I never stuck to anything, which is the good thing about me not sticking to anything – I never see anything through. It’s tough being a woman.”
The Chelsea Lately star also opened up on her tumultuous relationship with alcohol, and while she’s not teetotal, she told the publication that she has cut down and gained control.
“I used to drink all the time. I thought I could handle my alcohol, but I didn’t realise how much your body and your life changes when it’s not in your life every day,” the 44-year-old shared.
And Chelsea was impressed with her new-found figure once she took a break from the booze.
“It’s nice to wake up with clarity and to take a break from the bloat. I didn’t think I was bloated until I didn’t drink for a few weeks. Then I was like, ‘Whoa, look at my cheekbones and my abs,'” she laughed.

Kumail Nanjiani has wowed fans by showing off his physical transformation for his role in Marvel movie The Eternals.
The Silicon Valley actor and stand-up comedian was revealed to be playing Kingo, a cosmic-powered being and legendary swordsman, in the Marvel movie earlier this year, and he has been training heavily to prepare for filming.
On Monday evening, the 41-year-old showed off the result of his hard work, posting a shirtless picture on Instagram to flaunt his new ripped abs and bulging biceps.
“I never thought I’d be one of those people who would post a thirsty shirtless, but I’ve worked way too hard for way too long so here we are,” he wrote in the caption. “I found out a year ago I was going to be in Marvel’s Eternals and decided I wanted to transform how I looked. I would not have been able to do this if I didn’t have a full year with the best trainers and nutritionists paid for by the biggest studio in the world. I’m glad I look like this, but I also understand why I never did before. It would have been impossible without these resources and time.”
He went on to thank trainer Grant Roberts for making him “understand true physical pain for months and months”, the fitness team on location, the chefs at Matthews Street Catering for making him healthy meals, and his wife Emily V. Gordon for “putting up with me complaining and talking about only working out and dieting for the last year”.
Kumail’s picture subsequently went viral on social media and received many celebrity comments. Dwayne Johnson praised his transformation by writing, “Extremely hard work. Dense muscle is hard to achieve. Looking great my brother!!” with fist bump and flexing muscle emojis, while fellow former wrestler Dave Bautista wrote, “Holy good god! I’d say mission accomplished. Way to get after it brother!”
Brittany Snow added, “Holy. S**t,” Jason Biggs commented, “Holy balls,” and Chelsea Handler stated, “This is ridiculous.”
The Eternals, which also stars Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, and Richard Madden, is slated to hit cinemas in November 2020.
