Why Does Sarah Chalke Look So Skinny?

Sarah Chalke appears to have lost significant weight as she appeared skinny in Firefly Lane. Sarah was rumored to have an eating disorder.

To fit in character in their 20-somethings in the 1980s for Firefly Lane, Sarah likely must've undergone some changes to reflect the true essence of the character. 

The actress, despite having a trim physique, Sarah, is healthy. She works out, takes a balanced diet, and ignores food devoid of nutritional values, keeping her healthy at all times.
