After battling bulimia, Lindsay Lohan obsesses about her weight

Lindsay Lohan has battled drugs, alcohol and what she terms "chaos" for years, telling Oprah Winfrey in an interview: "I'm my own worst enemy." But in addition, Lindsay struggled with bulimia at one point, according to the Huffington Post.

Her eating disorder occurred in 2006, after she lost a significant amount of weight. Lindsay made the confession in an interview with Vanity Fair.

"I was making myself sick," she said, which was inferred by many, including People magazine, to be a reference to bulimia.

Lindsay credited Saturday Night Live producer Lorne Michaels and then-head writer Tina Fey with staging an intervention to help her recover from her eating disorder, according to People magazine.

"(They) sat me down, literally before I was going to do (SNL), and they said, 'You need to take care of yourself. We care about you too much, and we've seen too many people do this, and you're talented,' and I just started bawling. I knew I had a problem and I couldn't admit it," Lindsay said.

And in a reference to her weight loss, Lindsay added, "I saw that SNL after I did it. My arms were disgusting. I had no arms."

Now, however, Lindsay is again focused on her weight, according to Contact Music.

"She's paranoid about having a double chin and is convinced that getting skinny again will mean more film roles," said a source.

But her friends are concerned that her weight obsession will impact her recovery.

'They're worried this diet is just another way for her to abuse herself. And when she's low on energy, that's when her defences are down, which is a problem for someone who's only just come out of rehab," said the source.
