    Default Whitney Port Confesses to Extreme Dieting While on 'The Hills'‎

    Whitney Port, who gained fame as one of the spoiled rich girls on MTV’s reality series “The Hills,” now reveals she paid a punishing price to maintain her figure. To keep up with Hills characters such as Lauren Conrad, Audrina Patridge, Heidi Montag and Kristin Cavallari, she went on extreme diets.
    Port, 25, now the narrator and one of the main cast members of her spin-off, “The City,” says she limited her diet to 1,000 calories a day — half the recommended amount for women her age.
    And, the diet included a limited intake of carbohydrates, including no pasta.
    Most nutritionists recommend a well-rounded diet of whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables, healthy fats and lean sources of protein.

    Whitney Port engaged in extreme dieting to maintain her figure.
    As for carbohydrates, foods such as baked potatoes, whole-wheat pasta, brown rice, oatmeal, whole grain breads, and bananas boost your “feel-good” serotonin levels without a crash.
    They also provide plenty of fiber, so you feel full much longer.
    All the while, Port, who is 5’10″ tall, said she knew her diet was unhealthy, but she said she felt she had no choice to keep up with her castmates and the pressure of public life.
    “Working in Hollywood, there’s just a constant pressure to look your best,” she told the Australian edition of OK magazine. “For all of us who are on TV, it’s natural to be like, “I have to stare at myself all the time, I want to look the best I can.”‘


    She admitted that her health had suffered. “It’s hard to have that balance of wanting to look good but stay healthy,” she said. “It’s push/pull.”
    “Eating 1,000 calories a day is as bad as its ever gotten, which isn’t healthy,” said Port, who now weights about 120 pounds.
    Following the last season of “The Hills,” this year, Port is trying to shift to fashion design, with her own line, Whitney Eve, while pursuing acting jobs.
    She recently moved to New York City and hop-scotches to LA frequently.
    Her new series, “The City” centers around Port in New York, working for fashion designer Diane von Fürstenberg along with New York socialite, Olivia Palermo,.
    The show’s second season is focusing on the launch of her fashion line, Whitney Eve.
    Her boyfriend of seven months, Ben Nemtin, also lives in New York.

    1000 calories a day isn't that extreme. I mean, it's not ideal but it's not like she was eating cotton balls and lettuce.

    I agree that she'd be a lot thinner at 120 considering her height. I'd put her at 130-135.

    Starving herself yet a bit of a spare tire... and Lauren Conrad, Heidi, etc aren't that thin that she'd have to "keep up." In fact I'd say all of them were average and normal.
