As a model and a girl who loves sports, working out and staying active and energized is a huge part of Gigi Hadid's life. She has cultivated a great fitness routine that includes hitting the ring for tons of boxing sessions – but in a new interview, she admitted that she faces another challenge with her health. She has a thyroid condition called Hashimoto's disease, and she shared that in preparation for the recent Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, she really didn't want to lose too much weight like you may think.
"My metabolism actually changed like crazy this year. I have Hashimoto's disease. It's a thyroid disease, and it's now been two years since taking the medication for it, so for the VS show I didn't want to lose any more weight, I just want to have muscles in the right place, and if my butt can get a little perkier, then that's good," Gigi said.
Gigi's condition is a form of hypothyroidism, which can cause a ton of side effects like weight gain, sluggishness, and more – and since the medication used to treat it can cause weight loss, it's a good thing she's taking care to work out with different goals in mind.
