Nicole Richie blames her waif-like thinness on being over-stressed, which has effectively killed her appetite.
The Simple Life star has whittled down to a near nothing in the last year, and she insists she does indeed have a problem and is actively trying to put on weight.
She says, "I've never been diagnosed with an eating disorder. My weight is a result of stress. I didn't lose weight on purpose, I simply wasn't eating enough. But I did realize I had gotten too thin. Now I'm doing all I can to get my weight up, and have gained some. I'm seeing a trainer and a nutritionalist and eating healthy."
