Jenny Greene has opened up about body image struggles during her teen years.
The 2FM presenter saw her weight increase while taking prescribed medication, and found it very difficult to deal with.
“I was sick for years and had all these symptoms like chronic coughs and asthma,” she told the RTE Guide.
“By my mid-teens it got a bit better until my late teens when I got heavier again.”
She added, “I don’t eat any differently now so it was the medication.
“It was awful at the time because it’s an awkward age anyway.”
The RTE star admits she was her own worst emery, but knew that fad diets wouldn’t help the situation.
“I didn’t feel great about myself, but I didn’t get any grief from anyone either.
“I didn’t go on any diets and in any case, it wouldn’t have made any difference because it was a medical matter.”
