My Big Fat Fabulous Life star Whitney Thore has been facing health issues, but PCOS may not be the sole reason. For years, she has struggled with rapid weight gain and other subsequent problems, which she has related to Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. However, more insight into Whitney’s lifestyle may reveal there’s another explanation at the root of it all.
Whitney started to notice changes in her body and health while she was in college, and her life changed dramatically. The My Big Fat Fabulous Life star is now known for her advocacy of inclusion for larger body types and spreading self-love and acceptance, but it hasn’t always been easy for her. Coming to terms with all the changes she was going through is what led her to look for answers in the first place.
My Big Fat Fabulous Life’s Whitney Thore Doesn’t Focus On Her Diet
Throughout the seasons of My Big Fat Fabulous Life, Whitney has pinned the reasoning for her continued weight gain on PCOS. Although it most likely does play a major role in her overall health, there’s no denying that Whitney doesn’t always make the best choices when it comes to her diet. She has been open about the fact that she struggled with an eating disorder while in high school.
She admitted she put too much emphasis on the size of her body when she was on the dance floor as a teen. Now in an effort to be less mindful about her eating habits, she doesn’t put much thought into her diet at all. Ultimately, this could be a big part of the health issues she now faces.
My Big Fat Fabulous Life’s Whitney Thore Doesn’t Move Like She Used To
A big part of Whitney’s life used to be her passion for dance, but over the years, it hasn’t been a priority for the reality star. She once had aspirations to become a professional dancer and even chased her dream in earlier seasons of My Big Fat Fabulous Life. However, Whitney has lost her momentum, and it’s no longer her focus. Instead, her dating life and romantic endeavors have taken a front seat. Due to her change in priorities, she isn’t as active as she once was, which has undoubtedly affected her health.
While Whitney does have her own fitness company, No BS Active, she hasn’t taken the reins as she could. She has uploaded workout videos and tutorials to her recently launched app, but her lifestyle doesn’t match up with her business model. For this reason, My Big Fat Fabulous Life fans can’t take Whitney’s app seriously.
Whitney has proven in the past that she’s capable of more than anyone gives her credit for, and she never let herself be defined by labels or other people’s preconceived notions. In this instance, she is capable of taking control of her health whether she realizes it or not. Hopefully, the My Big Fat Fabulous Life star will start to push herself and recognize that she has the power to change her life and that she’s the only person standing in her way.
