Katharine McPheeMore than three years after Katharine McPhee went public with her struggle with bulimia, the former 'American Idol' runner-up tells PopEater she has no regrets about being so open, especially if word of how she overcame her battle could help others who suffer from eating disorders.

"They always say awareness is the number one thing to help other people, and it was sort of my story about how 'Idol' really gave me that step up to sort of overcome eating issues," Mcphee says. "It doesn't bother me because it's like a different person, like that person didn't even exist anymore. So, no, I don't have any regrets."

Now, McPhee rocks a bikini on the cover of the February issue of Shape. She told the magazine, "The more I focused on my weight, the worse my bulimia got ... Now I'm more easygoing. I stopped fighting myself and became more forgiving of my body."
