The actress fought back tears while interviewing weight management expert Dr Lucy Burns, who spoke of how some people resort to binge-eating to cope with their emotional demons.

‘I think, really, that sense of sort of being able to forgive myself,’ she said tearfully.

‘Because I know people are like, “Why has she done that to herself?” And I felt I had no choice. It was the only sane decision I could make, given the alternatives that I faced.’

‘And then you become this, like, f**king shame magnet,’ she added.

‘And it’s like you’re not supposed to fight back. You are not allowed to defend yourself. You’re supposed to just hang your head again in shame and say, “I’ve brought this on myself.”‘

Dr Burns agreed with Magda, before sharing some insightful knowledge about the human body’s ability to recover from bingeing and emotional eating.

‘The most amazing thing is that our body is so forgiving,’ she said.

‘It can rejuvenate, it can repair, it can reverse this whole process – if done early enough and done with real food.’

Dr Burns also addressed a common misconception when it comes to losing weight.

‘There are some people that still just do believe that you just need to “eat less and move more”. And that’s just simple ignorance,’ the doctor said.

‘If it was that simple, we’d all do it. It’s not that simple. All we can do is go, “You know what? I’m the boss of me. I’m in charge of me and I’m going to do whatever I can to optimise and maximise this wonderful life.”‘

Magda is one of Australia’s most well-known comedians, and is best known for playing lovable loser Sharon Strzelecki on ABC sitcom Kath & Kim.
