Portia de Rossi once ate 300 calories a day




Portia de Rossi has always been thin, but that figure came at a cost. She revealed during a taping for Monday's Oprah Winfrey Show that she's struggled with a serious eating disorder, at one time consuming only about "300 calories ... a day." It's safe to say she wasn't eating at McDonald's then.

"It wasn't that I was proud of it," the 37-year-old says, according to Us. "But it was certainly a recognition for my self-control. I definitely had some pretty amazing willpower to get down to 82 pounds. And that's what I was holding onto to. I didn't think about anything else."

De Rossi says these days she's simply happy to have married Ellen De Generes, and to have legally changed her surname to De Generes. we hope that's partially because Ellen makes her eat a pizza every now and then.
