Amara La Negra is young, vibrant, and full of confidence -- but that hasn't always been the case. The singer and "Love and Hip Hop" standout joined Tony Redz Wednesday night and talked everything from her dating life to her previous struggles with bulimia. 

Amara revealed how she struggled dealing with domestic issues between her parents and turned to food to cope.

"I felt a lot of pressure to look a certain way. I used to weigh 230 pounds," Amara explained. "I went through this really big depression because of things that were happening in my household. And it caused me to eat."

The Afro-Latine star explained how she felt pressure from society to look a certain type of way, and eventually began binge eating and then forcing herself to vomit. After some time though, she says she learned to love herself and live by the motto, "Take it or leave it."

Is she ready for a special someone to "take it or leave it," though? Sorry fellas, she's not. Amara says she's too busy to even think about her personal life, let alone a boyfriend. 

Don't lose all hope just yet though, Amara is currently running a contest on Instagram that will allow one lucky person to win a date with her.
