Katie Couric is getting personal indeed on her new syndicated talk show, Katie.  

During an episode set to air Monday afternoon featuring Demi Lovato, who battled an eating disorder and cutting, Couric, 55, revealed about her own past issues with body image - and stated an eating disorder she had long kept quiet.

"I wrestled with bulimia all through college and for two years after that," Couric quoted as saying while interviewing an expert in eating disorders

Sharing details of her experience, Couric claimed:"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 ... sometimes (I would) beat myself up for that," Couric added. "That is such a huge thing for people who wrestle with this."
