"My diet? Because I'm on tour, it's not very healthy," the most recent "American Idol" runner-up tells Us Weekly magazine in its latest issue, on newsstands Friday. "But I'm not controlling (about) my weight anymore, I don't do any weird, disordered eating things anymore, thank God."
In June, the 22-year-old McPhee revealed that she sought treatment for her bulimia last fall after successfully auditioning for the FOX talent contest. She enrolled in an eating-disorder center in Los Angeles and spent three months in therapy.
"I'm not working with a food coach anymore, but I do have people with whom I check in," she tells US.
McPhee, who lost the "Idol" sing-off to Taylor Hicks, also addresses talk of her divalike behavior.
"I am a strong woman," she tells the magazine. "But on `Idol,' people were saying things like, `Oh, she's stuck-up.' ... It's hard because no matter what I do, there will always be people who don't like me. I don't think I've become less friendly because I was on one TV show."
"American Idol" airs on FOX, which is owned by the parent company of FOXNews.com.
