JAZZ Jennings reveals she has gained 100 pounds in two years after suffering from a binge-eating disorder.

The YouTuber, who boasts 668,000 subscribers on the platform, took to Instagram to show fans her before and after photos.

Along with the photos Jazz left a long caption explaining how she put the weight on and is now fighting to lose it.

The 20-year-old penned: "As many of you have noticed, over the past few years, I have gained a substantial amount of weight.

"I suffer from binge-eating disorder, a disease in which I’m not only addicted to food, but I eat it in large quantities.

"My binging, along with an increased appetite I experience from some of the meds I’m on, has caused me to gain almost 100 pounds in a little less than 2 years."

The young web star acknowledged her great support system and is keen to make "positive changes" to her body.

"I’m ready to take the initiative and create positive changes when it comes to my health and body," she penned.

"I have a fabulous team supporting me, both professionals and family/friends, but at the end of the day, I have to be the one committed toward bettering myself.

"I know I have the power in me to lose the weight, and I intend on sharing my progress with all of you. Love you all, and thanks for understanding the battle I’m fighting to win❤️❤️❤️"

In February 2020 Jazz underwent her third gender confirmation surgery which was filmed for her TLC reality show I Am Jazz.

The surgery came after she suffered complication from a previous procedure. 

Jennings is notable for being one of the youngest publicly documented people to be identified as transgender.
