Hilary Duff is opening up about the challenges she had as a teenager. The former Disney star said in a recent interview that she struggled with an eating condition when she was 17 years old. “I can’t help but be like, ‘I am on camera and actresses are tiny,'” the 35-year-old woman told Women’s Health Australia. “Because of my job path, I can’t help but be like, ‘I am on camera and actors are slender.'” “It was a terrible experience.”
The actress eventually came to accept and appreciate both the physicality of her body as well as the power it possessed.
“[I’m] appreciating my health and performing activities that make me feel strong instead of just bettering the outside of my body,” the mother of three, who is married to Matthew Koma, explained further. “Spending time with individuals who make me feel good and share similar ideas on health and body acceptance, as well as getting sufficient amounts of sleep and maintaining a balanced diet.”
The assistance of trainer Dominic Leeder has unquestionably contributed to the shift in her outlook.
He stated to the magazine, “I don’t feel like she’ll mind me saying this: absolutely, her fitness and health are enormously important to Hilary,” and he was confident that she wouldn’t mind him stating it. “Her job and her family are the aspects of her life that she values the most. When she gets home from work, her first priority is to spend time with her family because she is away from them for such a short amount of time when she is working hard, and she wants to make the most of the time she does have with them.”

Leeder has emphasized that the focus of his method for teaching former members of “Younger” is on long-term viability.
“When I met Hilary, we decided that we wanted to grow lean muscle mass and up her metabolism, so we chose to focus on resistance training,” he confessed. “When I met Hilary, we decided to focus on strength training.” “Her nutrition was also a significant aspect, and I wanted to make sure that she was eating the appropriate quantity of macros for the objective that she required,”
Leeder pointed out that Duff’s fitness goals are not always at the forefront of her mind as she juggles the demands of her job schedule and her family. However, taking a holistic approach to her training has enabled her to find the combination of activities that is most effective for her.
“After she accomplished her initial goal, we needed to come up with a new objective that revolved around [her priorities],” he went on to say. “The process of establishing the new objective [with Hilary] was difficult. We ultimately decided that the best course of action would be to keep what we have while also achieving the kind of excellent life/work balance that is significant to her.”
