London, Feb 9 Actress Demi Moore has been banned from weighing herself while in rehab.
The 49-year-old actress is undergoing treatment for “substance abuse and anorexia” at Cirque Lodge in Utah, which has previously treated stars including Lindsay Lohan, Mary-Kate Olsen and Eva Mendes, and medics at the centre don’t want Moore to focus on her size while she recovers.
“It’s common treatment practice at Cirque to not allow patients that are being treated for an eating disorder to see how much they weigh when they step on the scale,” contactmusic.com quoted a source as saying.
“Their weights are taken everyday, sometimes several times a day to make sure that they aren’t losing weight while in treatment. Doctors at Cirque don’t want patients to fixate on their weight,” the source added.
The actress is expected to spend at least 60 days in the treatment centre and will be prevented from contacting the outside world including her daughters and estranged spouse Ashton Kutcher, for some time.
