Amanda Bynes Says Eating Disorder Makes It Hard for Her to 'Stay Thin'

Say What!? 6

amanda bynesAmanda Bynes hasn't seemed right in the head for a while now, so it should really come as no surprise that she's been off and running with even more insane tweets. The latest: She's claiming she has an eating disorder and once again threatening to sue "certain blogs and magazines" for saying she has "a mental illness." She wrote: "They take pictures anytime I've gained weight then write a fake story! ... I have an eating disorder so I have a hard time staying thin." Whaaaa?

The only eating disorder that could cause you to have a hard time staying thin I would guess would be compulsive overeating ... or bulimia, which can involve binging and a slowed metabolism. Either way, it's definitely sad that she's dealing with that. And there's evidence that she may be suffering from body dysmorphic disoder, as well ...

She's tweeted about her weight several times recently, writing, "Looking pudgy and I broke my nail" and "Skinny's The F--k." She also confessed her goal weight is 100 pounds, which most health experts would probably say is way underweight given that she's 5'8". So, it's possible she may be struggling with all manner of body image and eating issues. Agh.

What's more, though she claims she isn't suffering from mental illness, her behavior has been beyond erratic.  I mean... wasn't it was just last week she sent the following cringe-worthy tweet: "I want @drake to murder my vagina"? What. In. The. World.

That said, let's hope the girl gets the professional help she needs -- for the eating disorder and the verbal/Twitter diarrhea and whatever else is going on with her -- ASAP.

What do you guess is going on with Amanda Bynes?

All too common misconception about eating disorders!! You can have anorexia OR bulimia and still be classified as over weight. An obese person can become malnourished while remaining obese. It's a mental state... Battle with food and control... What you see on the outside is such a small tip of the iceberg.

If she has an eating disorder then she has a mental illness. That sucks for her, I hope she gets help with that.

100lbs at 5'8??? That's way to thin!

I think she is a young person with too much time on her hands and an enormous desire for attention. She needs a real job and a cork for her gaping twitter maw.

Honestly. I think she knows exactly what she's doing. She's trying to stay relevant by any means necessary. It sure would be sad if she really is having issues, but I just don't think so. She's successfully become one of the most talked about people of the moment, everybody's waiting for her next move.

Maybe do your research? ANY eating disorder can make it hard to stay thin, because you are screwing with your metabolism.
