“I skipped breakfast and I would eat at around like 2, 3 o’clock and then I would have a candy bar for dinner and just drink orange juice throughout the day,” she said.
“Energy drinks, you know, anything to keep my body going without the calories.” Lacey then discovered diet pills at age 18, which helped the already thin dancer shed an additional shocking 15 pounds off her 5’ 3” frame.
Those dancers were Chaz Bono, Kyle Massey, Michael Catherwood, Lance Bass, and Mark Dacascos.
These days, though the harsh critiques are still painful, Lacey says she’s learned to ignore the body bullying.Talking about the educational background of Lacey Schwimmer, there is no any information about the educational institutions and subjects in which she majored.Though she had a family with full of experienced dancers, she had to struggle and prove her worth.“I was really, really scary thin,” Lacey, who chose to come forward with her story in hopes of inspiring others who may also be battling the dangerous disease, told Access Hollywood in an interview at the time.“My waist [was] insanely thin; my hair was starting to fall out; it was getting thin. I was like, ‘Alright, this isn’t cool.’ I saw other girls that were healthy and happy at my age and I was not like that whatsoever.” Lacey’s eating disorder began at 13 while training for 10 hours a day as a dancer.She was among the top four finalists in that season.After her success in ‘So You Think You Can Dance’, she appeared as a professional dancer on ‘Dancing with Stars’ consecutively for six seasons except in the 10th season.She was raised with her Brother Benji Schwimmer by her parents in the same place where she was born.From the very early age of life, Lacey was interested in pursuing a career as a dancer and a costume designer because she was raised with her father, a well-known experienced dancer Buddy Schwimmer, brother Benji Schwimmer, and a cousin Heidi Groskreutz.She is also famous for being a daughter of the well-known dancer Buddy Schwimmer and a younger sister of Benji Schwimmer who won the second season of ‘So You Think You Can Dance’.Lacey Schwimmer was born on June 28, 1988, in Redlands, California, United States of America.
