Lindsay Lohan’s little sis Ali Lohan alarmed paparazzi and readers when snaps taken of the teen out and about in Beverly Hills revealed what one doctor said may be signs of a dangerous eating disorder.
The younger Lohan “recently signed a modeling contract,” and the trade often relies on women maintaining dangerously thin weights to secure work or continue working. RadarOnline consulted a doctor and medical journal editor about the alarming pictures, and while the snaps were far away, the doc says he spotted the telltale signs of an eating disorder.
Dr. Majid Ali has not treated the aspiring model, but he was able to pinpoint a few factors that could indicate an unhealthy relationship to food. Ali suggests that Ali Lohan is already exhibiting signs of starvation:
“She is very underweight. By looking at her cheekbones you can tell she has muscle wasting going on… I’m unsure how she is losing weight but she has the look of someone who may binge and purge plus calorie restrict.”
Ali, however, didn’t hesitate to say the teen was definitely too thin for her height, and he pointed out the dangers inherent when symptoms such as the ones Lohan appears to be afflicted with manifest:
“When that happens, the body looks for calories by feeding on itself. Muscle is the first to go then fats, hence the loss of bust size and the curves. At her height, I’d put her under 100lbs, maybe 95ish, and that’s way, way too thin.”
The gossip site also speculated that Lohan had undergone injections in her face, a claim Next Model Agency in Los Angeles denies. Estranged dad Michael Lohan spoke to RadarOnline about the pictures of his daughter and said that while Ali has always “been thin,” the changes appear to be “drastic” and “concerning.”
