Kelly Osbourne Used To Starve Herself

These days, Kelly Osbourne looks like a billion bucks and we've always applauded her commitment to getting herself in shape. That doesn't mean, however, it wasn't a long, hard road to get to where she is today.

In a new interview, Kelly opens up about the downside to getting this thin. She reveals all the drastic measures she tried in the past to get herself down on the scale, including starving herself. She told sources:

“I’ve done everything — meal deliveries, milkshakes, diet pills, the juice diet, the maple syrup diet, even not eating at all. I’d do it for three days and if I didn’t feel a drastic change, I’d be like, ‘F**k this, I’m not doing that anymore.’ ”

In the end, she found her skinny figure by just treating herself right, eating good foods and finding good ways to exercise, like dancing! But even though she is happy with her new look, she still deals with a lot of self-image issues, which is why she goes to a therapist. She explains:

“I’m in therapy — it’s helped me in all areas of my life. There’s a huge mental factor in losing weight. It’s not just about getting on the treadmill. It’s about doing things to make you feel good about yourself.”

Mental health is just as important to get under control as physical health. We're proud of Kelly O for finding balance in both aspects of her life.

And remember ladies, letting yourself go hungry is not the way. Think moderation, not starvation.

Portia De Rossi Says Ellen Saved Her Life

portia de rossie says elle degeneres saved her life

This is a truly inspirational story!

In Portia De Rossi's new memoir, Unbearable Lightness, she speaks about her downward spiral into anorexia, bulimia, and other health issues which were stopped by Ellen Degeneres.

De Rossi had reached a point where she weighed only 82 pounds, took up to 20 laxatives per day, worked out for hours on end, and was surviving on 150 calories per day, and had basically almost killed herself.

De Rossi had developed a variety of health issues, including osteoporosis, cirrhosis of the liver, organ failure, and Lupus.

After the diagnosis of her health issues, De Rossi began to eat again, but became a compulsive eater, who gained 85 pounds in a single year.

Then Portia met Ellen, fell in love with her, and was inspired by her.

Here's what Portia had to say about how Ellen saved her:

"Ellen has taught me not to care about other people's opinions."

More from Portia:

"Ellen saw a glimpse of my inner being from underneath the flesh and bone, reached in and pulled me out."

Ellen's lesson for Portia is a valid one that we can all benefit from. It's important to feel good about yourself as a person.

You shouldn't focus on how others will perceive you, but rather how you feel about yourself physically, mentally, AND emotionally.

Remember - emotional and mental health are just as important as physical health!
