Lindsay Lohan: 5 Pounds Gained in Rehab

By: Sean Patterson - May 17, 2013

Though Lindsay Lohan has had a few difficult years, it now seems that the former child actress is serious about getting her life under control. The star is currently in rehab at the Betty Ford Clinic, getting treatment her various addictions.

Now, Radar Online is reporting that Lohan has begun eating very well. The publication cited an unnamed “source close to the situation” as saying Lohan has gained five pounds while in rehab. The weight gain evidently came after doctors at the facility banned her from taking Adderall. Lohan has stated in the past that she has “severe” ADD and that her Adderall use is meant to keep it under control.

Adderall is an amphetamine-based stimulant that is often given to children to control ADD. It is also widely abused for recreational use, or by college students who need help concentrating on their studies.

Though many Hollywood actresses would freak out over gaining 5 pounds, Lindsay Lohan is arguably one of the stars that could use a bit of meat on her bones. Radar’s source stated that the food at the Betty Ford Clinic is “really, really good,” includes plenty of dessert, and that Lohan has bad eating habits.

    I would rather see her gain the weight than to be taking pills, she needs to get healthy, do her stint in rehab, which she has no choice but to stay and get her life back on track. She is a lost soul, who was drowning her issues, in alcohol and drugs. I hope she does well and comes out of this a different person. However in some of these rehabs, when patients are forced to do a lockdown of 30,60 or even 90 days. They go right back to the same crappy life they had before they went in. I hope she does not. She is running out of options here, and the next step could be a long stint in jail. Good Luck to you Lindsay.
