Megan Barton Hanson has admitted she has been “obsessing” over her body after losing, and since gaining, weight.
The former Love Islander, 28, opened up about her relationship with her body in an Instagram Q&A with her fans after one asked the star to talk about her “diet and workout plans”.
“I’ve been really struggling with my body,” Megan began to write before sharing a snap in lingerie. “I got this lean back in Feb/March and not in a healthy way.”
She added: “Now I’ve gained weight by eating a normal amount of cals (1200/1300) and I’m obsessing about it!”
Megan revealed that while it was nice to be complimented on her body, the pressure of it all was too much.

“The praise was super nice but also the pressure to maintain that is a lot. I was living on 800/1000 cals a day and working out and it wasn’t sustainable,” she shared, before explaining how she used to be called “fat” years ago.
“It’s tough tho being called fat for years, then the praise for starving myself, it’s hard having so many options.”
It comes after the single star shared an insight into her dating life after a potential love interest ruined their chances with the islander by asking her for a hot tub picture.
The model shared a screenshot of a WhatsApp conversation with an anonymous person, asking her fans if she was being oversensitive after they said: “Let me know how you get on in the hot tub, always happy to see a pic x. Have a nice afternoon though and will shout you in a bit x.”
Megan was seen to reply with the words: “LOL sign up to onlyfans if that’s your vibe.”
The star then added: “Honestly men these days! Was about to go on a date with this guy and he ruined it in the first convo… I get put off so easily?!”

Megan added a poll which asked fans: “Over sensitive?! Or pure liberties?”
The ex-ITV favourite is currently single after splitting from TOWIE star James Lock.
It was reported Megan was left “terrified” after her ex James “kicked” her hotel room door in following a row between her and 35 year old James.
The star allegedly alerted staff at the Courthouse Hotel in London and according to The Sun, guests saw police arriving outside shortly after, but Megan had reportedly left the hotel before their arrival.
“Megan was shocked. It was all very aggressive,” a source told the publication. “At one point, the hotel door was kicked. There was a lot of shouting.
“This all happened in broad daylight in a busy hotel. It was very dramatic and Megan’s hotel door was damaged in the chaos.”
