BUZZ: Whitney Port once admitted she never tried pasta, only ate 1,000 calories a day

Whitney Port has been restricting her diet for years before finally admitting this week that she may be “too thin.”

At the height of her fame as the star of MTV’s “The City,” the reality star revealed she only ate 1,000 calories a day to keep up with the “constant pressure to look your best” in Hollywood.

“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 told Australia’s OK! Magazine back in 2010, according to the Daily Mail.

“I’ve monitored what I’ve put in my mouth. Eating 1,000 calories a day is as bad as its ever gotten, which isn’t healthy.”

Whitney Port — who admitted this week she is “too thin” — has been restricting her diet for years.

According to the outlet, Port, who stands at 5-foot-10, weighed only 112 pounds at the time.

“It’s hard to have that balance of wanting to look good but stay healthy,” she added. “It’s push/pull.”

Nearly a decade later, Port did not just curb her calorie count but also limited what she ate.

The “Hills” alum revealed to She Knows in 2018 that she had “never eaten pasta in [her] entire life.”

However, Port also told the lifestyle outlet at the time that she intended to try the dish for the first time in Italy the following week.

“I think I’m going to actually try pasta there!” she said. “I feel like I have to, right?!”

Port claimed for years that she had never tried pasta.

In 2016, Port gave some more insight into why she was never tempted to try the Italian staple.

“One weird fact about me: I have never eaten pasta my entire life,” she wrote on Instagram before disclosing, “The texture weirds me out!”

The “With Whit” podcast host shared at the time, though, that she had found couscous — which is a type of pasta made from semolina flour mixed with water — to be an alternative she prefers.

The MTV alum previously said she was “weirded out” by the “texture” of pasta.

Port addressed her poor eating habits in a post on her Instagram Stories Monday.

She said while she initially brushed off fans’ comments about her weight, she paid more attention when her husband, Tim Rosenman, shared he was “worried” about her.

“I had to think about it and try to figure out what has been happening because it’s not something I’m consciously thinking about,” the mother of one wrote.

However, Port admitted recently that her husband, Tim Rosenman, has made her more cognizant of her weight.

“I eat to live, not the other way around,” she said on Instagram.

“I eat to live, not the other way around. … I always feel hungry but I just don’t know what to eat. It’s not how I want to look or feel though.”

Port said she considered herself “too lazy to make feeding [herself] a priority,” adding, “I’m too picky when it comes to taste and quality.”

However, the 38-year-old concluded, “Both are unacceptable.”
