    Oh my there's a lot of speculation AKA gossip. I personally wouldn't believe too much that comes from the media.

    What do you mean, anything on the TV or internet has to be true, it's like a law or something :stone

    You are not aware that some people have worse metabolism than others and must carefully watch what they eat?.Actually she was taking many different meds;antidepressants,pain killers,thyroid meds to speed up her metabolism..
    While it is generally accepted as fact that some people do have a genetic predisposition to weight gain, I highly doubt this is the case with Brittany. If you observe her body type, she is a small woman with a small frame. As far as her medication regimen, this is the list of medications found on her nightstand:

    - Topamax (anti-seizure medications also to prevent migraines) - Methylprednisolone (anti-inflammatory)
    - Fluoxetine (depression medication)
    - Klonopin (anxiety medication)
    - Carbamazepine (treats Diabetic symptoms and is also a bipolar medication)
    - Ativan (anxiety medication)
    - Vicoprofen (pain reliever)
    - Propranolol (hypertension, used to prevent heart attacks)
    - Biaxin (antibiotic)
    - Hydrocodone (pain medication)
    - Vitamins.

    Not a single one of these is for the purpose of "speeding up the metabolism".
