The Only Way Is Essex's Lauren Goodger is reportedly considering getting a gastric band fitted to control her eating.
The reality star opened up about her weight problems last week, declaring that she "hated" the way she looked and had a problem with food.
Now according to Closer, Lauren is considering rather dramatic methods of shedding her excess weight.
"Lauren’s said that, some days, she feels so fat she thinks she needs a gastric band. She’s spent hours trawling through websites for 'quick fix' solutions, like weight-loss pills," a source tells the magazine.
They continue: "Lauren doesn't seem to have self-control when it comes tofood, so she's looking for other solutions. She’s read about a new liquid diet where you don't eat 10 days and get fed through a tube in your nose instead - and she's so desperate she might consider it.
"She’s so unhappy with her figure and she's always going on about her back fat and belly."
Lauren's pals blame her diet breakdown on her break up with former TOWIE star Mark Wright last year, with the pair finally putting an end to their relationship after 10 years together.
TOWIE returns to ITV2 later this year.
