Gigi also disclosed that the reason for her weight loss is due to an autoimmune illness called Hashimoto’s disease. "After discovering that I have Hashimoto’s, I needed to eat healthy and work out. It was weird as a teenager, dealing with this when all of my friends could eat McDonald’s and it wouldn’t affect them."
