Amelia Gray Hamlin has gained 50 pounds recovering from eating disorder! Her struggle with anorexia, family, boyfriend and social media
The daughter of Harry Hamlin, Amelia Gray Hamlin has finally recovered from an eating disorder. She has had serious anorexia since her early teens. Amelia gained 50 pounds in the sixth month while trying to recover from her eating disorder.
Her parents Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin opened up about her struggles with anorexia and how she ended up getting treatment on the latest episode of Dear Media podcast The Skinny Confidential Him and Her.
Similarly, she developed an eating disorder at the age of 14. It happened after she was upset by her appearance in paparazzi photos that were taken when she was leaving a store with her mom.
“I woke up one morning at my childhood best friend’s house. It was, like, seven in the morning. My parents, my sister, they’re all outside, waiting to pick me up,”
They took her to UCLA to see a doctor, so she could begin treatment for an eating disorder. She said,
“He looked at me… and he was, like, so, yeah, basically at this rate in about four months, you’re gonna be 45 pounds, and you’re gonna be dead,”
That changed her and she thought she would change herself. She has changed herself but she has side effects. She suffered from hormonal imbalance, thyroid, depression, and anxiety.
More on Amelia Hamlin’s health
At the beginning of her weight gain journey, she was still eating an apple a day. She would just eat a bowl of vegetables at night with some sriracha. Previously, she used to work out and eat normally when she was anorexic. She did not allow her body to heal and was gaining a lot of weight.
Her mother said that she was fine and it might have happened as she was eating more than she thought she needed. She revealed,
“I tried doing all those things for a little bit, still nothing. I’m just gaining and gaining and gaining. And that I think was so hard, being in the public eye, gaining weight at such a young age. Like, that’s just so f****d up.”
Amelia later found out that she had Hashimoto’s disease which is an autoimmune disorder in which the thyroid gland is attacked.
