In a new interview for the September 2022 issue of British Vogue, the model revealed that she ate next to nothing at the height of her desperation after she allegedly had been deformed after undergoing a fat-reducing procedure called coolsculpting five years ago.
"I was so embarrassed. I'd just spent all of this money, and the only way I could think of to fix it was zero calories," she told British Vogue.
"I just drank water. Or sometimes I would have a stick of celery or one apple. I was losing my mind."
Linda sued company Zeltiq and recently settled that lawsuit.
The model claimed the coolsculpting did the opposite of what it promised and increased fat cells instead of reducing them.
Eventually, her doctor diagnosed her with paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (PAH), and she underwent liposuction twice to try and correct the issue.
"I have incisions all over my body. I have had stitches. I have worn compression garments under my chin. I had my entire body tightly girdled for eight weeks - nothing helped.," she shared.
Linda recently made her fashion comeback with a Fendi campaign, celebrating the 25th anniversary of the brand's iconic Baguette handbag.
In the image, snapped by Steven Meisel, the model is seen clutching two silver sequin Baguette purses. She also sports pink glasses and three satin hats piled on each other.
While she is happy to be back in the modelling world, the star admitted she won't feel comfortable posing in a swimsuit anytime soon.
"I miss my work so much, but honestly, what can I do? It isn't going to be easy. You're not going to see me in a swimsuit, that's for sure."
