Amanda Bynes is continuing to use Twitter to explain her newfound attitudes and behavior. Her most recent tweets involve the revelation that she has an eating disorder and is quite upset with all that magazines print about her.
"I'm suing certain blogs and magazines saying I have a mental illness! They take pictures anytime I've gained weight then write a fake story! They write a news article about every tweet I write and I hate the pictures they choose. They repeat what I tweet then add a bad photo. Only use photos from my twitter when writing an article about me," Bynes advised.
Yet for all of her knowledge about what is being said about her by the magazines, she claims not to read any of the articles written about her "unless (she) gives an interview for a magazine."
Bynes' Twitter feed has made for much discussion, with its nonsensical posts and surprising comments.
"I have an eating disorder, so I have a hard time staying thin," she tweeted yesterday. Yet she has not spoken about having an eating disorder before now, and it's worrisome given her height and weight goals.
"I moved to New York City and I love it! I lost 4 lbs. since I moved. I'm 121 lbs. – my goal is 100 lbs.," she told Us Weekly. "I gain weight quickly so I need to work out constantly," Bynes added.
For someone of her height, 5-foot-8-inches, Bynes should weigh approximately 124 lbs. to 163 lbs., especially if she works out "constantly." If Bynes would hit her target weight of 100 lbs., she would technically be underweight and unhealthy, with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of only 15.2; a health BMI falls between 18.5 and 24.9, according to CaloriesCount.com.
Bynes recently missed a court date for a pre-trial hearing and could face time in jail if she does not show at her next appointment in May. She was involved in a series of hit-and-runs as well as drunk driving arrests, leading many to wonder if something is seriously wrong with her mental or emotional state.
