Brittany Snow: I always had it in my mind that being skinny was better, even as a little girl. But I was never chubby or overweight. At age 12, I was on The Guiding Light, and that forced me to grow up fast. I wanted to be accepted by all these adults I was working with. I started with the Eat Right for Your Type diet. A friend of mine was doing it. I have a perfectionist personality, so I wanted to do the best job that I could. It was almost fun for me, like a little experiment. Then I started with other diets. Once I started losing weight, I got compliments from people I looked up to on the show. Suddenly, I was addicted to getting results. That's how it started, but it progressed rather quickly.
