Remi Bader announced she will be undergoing outpatient treatment for binge eating.
Bader, 26, is a content creator and curve model with over 2 million followers on TikTok. She made a niche for herself on TikTok with her “realistic hauls” in which she models clothes from popular brands.
On Tuesday, she posted a TikTok to share that she will be starting outpatient treatment for binge eating.
“The past year and a half, I can’t even explain how happy I am that I’ve gotten to the point where I am, that this is my life, and this is my job,” she said in the video. “But the past few months, I almost started feeling, not inauthentic, that’s the wrong word.”
“I started feeling that things are getting worse for me of how I feel about myself, my body, my confidence,” she went on to say. “And obviously a lot of that has to do with my binge eating.”
“I’ve said back and forth it’s gotten better, it’s gotten worse. But to be honest, it’s gotten to a point where it’s not getting any better,” she said of her binge eating.
Binge eating is characterized by someone overeating, isolating themselves, or hoarding food, accompanied by feelings of loss of control and guilt around eating, as Insider previously reported.
Bader said she considered getting inpatient treatment for her binge eating, but she ultimately decided that outpatient treatment is the right thing for her. Her treatment will begin Wednesday, as she said in the TikTok.
She went on to say that the emotions she’s experiencing when she’s off-camera are what led her to seek treatment.
“I know you always say I don’t need to make videos every day, but the video part is what makes me the happiest,” she went on to say. “I don’t know why that is, that through a camera I feel better, but it’s more those feelings that I have about myself when I’m alone.”
“I should feel the best when I’m alone,” she added. “I shouldn’t feel the best just based on what other people are thinking about me and through this app.”
Bader said she will be at a treatment center multiple times per week for multiple hours, eating meals and meeting with multiple experts, including a therapist.
She went on to say she would not be posting about her treatment when she’s there because of “confidentiality reasons.”
Bader has been open about her issues with her body image in the past, both on TikTok and in conversations with the media.
In September 2021, she told Yahoo Life that she doesn’t consider herself a body-positive influencer.
“I wish I could be like those people who feel that way and are genuinely so happy with the way they look and satisfied and content,” she said. “But I’m not. I feel pretty uncomfortable.”
Bader did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
