October 30th, 2010 // Leave a Comment

On this Monday’s episode of Oprah, Portia de Rossi will talk about her past struggle with eating disorders.  Seen here, in leaner times at The LA Gay & Lesbian Center’s Breakfast At Barney’s Greengrass in Beverly Hills, last May 5th, the actress and Ellen DeGeneres‘ wife, talks about how little she ate with Oprah on Monday’s episode.

Portia said she used to only eat 300 calories a day! US Weekly quotes her saying, “It wasn’t that I was proud of it,” Portia says. “But it was certainly a recognition for my self-control.  I definitely had some pretty amazing willpower to get down to 82 pounds.  And that’s what I was holding onto to.  I didn’t think about anything else.”

The actress said she is now in a good place.  Portia recently legally took Ellen’s last name, “By taking her name, [it] makes me feel like I have a family”.  Portia is releasing a tell all book titled, Unbearable Lightness, that reveals her struggle with an eating disorder.
