Whitney Port is seeking help for her eating habits — but has “yet to admit” she has a disorder.

The “Hills” star told “With Whit” podcast listeners Wednesday that her weight loss has been “more out of laziness and pickiness,” saying she allows herself to “just go hungry” because she does not “care.”

However, she noted, “I think, though, that it is a type of disordered eating.

“That’s not OK, that’s not healthy. I’m obviously not giving my body the nutrients it needs.”

Port, 38, added that her close friend has given her “contact [information for] an awesome nutritionist/eating disorder specialist.”

She said, “I’m going to talk to someone and figure it out and figure out what I like and make sure that I’m making that a priority.”

Port first addressed claims that she was underweight in a July Instagram post, sharing her husband Tim Rosenman’s “concern” over her “unhealthy” appearance.

“I had to think about it and try to figure out what has been happening because it’s not something I’m consciously thinking about,” she wrote last month, saying “it hit” her when she stepped on the scale.

The former reality star added on her podcast the following week that she wants to “eat thoughtfully,” “put the right things in [her] body” and work out in a way that will build muscle.”

She said, “I’m on it, guys. … I don’t think it’s as big of an issue as it may seen.”
