26 year Christchurch journalist Luke Chivers talks with Kathryn about his four year struggle with bulimia and body dysmorphia.

His complex relationship with food began when he was training for a marathon, and ultimately spiraled into an endless cycle of bingeing and purging - up to twenty times a day. It's been a long hard road to recovery - and Luke says, when it comes to body issues, New Zealand men aren't encouraged to talk openly.
