Celebrities, especially females, are always under pressure to appear skinny due to social stigmas. Because of this, many of them are unable to eat proper meals and put themselves at risk of severe health problems, such as Oh My Girl‘s JinE who was diagnosed with anorexia after following her own extreme diet.
