Victoria's Just Healthy

Victoria's Just Healthy

Victoria Beckham is stick thin so naturally she is constantly accused of having an eating disorder. However Posh insists her secret to staying so thin is as simple as eating very healthy. Here's more:

"I eat really healthy, I love Japanese food, lots of fish, any sort of fish, any sort of vegetable, lots of fruit, that kind of thing," said Beckham, the former Posh Spice, during an appearance recently on the BBC Radio program "Gordon Ramsay's Perfect Christmas Lunch."

Of the speculation in the British press about her having an eating disorder, she said, "I don't really care all that much. We live in Spain. I don't really see a lot of the press, and I don't really hear what's going on. I'm just past caring."

Still, she says, "I think there's a big difference between someone having an eating disorder and someone who is controlled about what they eat. There's a big difference, and every now and then of course I go out and eat what I like. But I do try to be quite disciplined in the way that I eat."

She makes it sound really simple. So not fair - naturally skinny and married to one of the sexiest men ever.

I suppose some people can be given the benefit of the doubt that they are actually eating food. I just know when I was Victoria's size I was NOT eating anything! I knew a girl in school who had scoliosis and she was rail thin she didn't eat much either but it wasn't because she wanted to stay rail thin she was just unhealthy!! There's a difference between being naturally thin or skinny and having an eating disorder I'll admit that. But I really don't think that most of the hollywood types we see who are rail thin are just "naturally skinny." Women need to stand up and say "This is who I am!! If you don't like it that's your problem not mine. We don't all need to be a size zero!!!

It's really aggrivating how people constantly accuse skinny people of having an eating disorder. It really pisses me off.

I wonder how she'll handle the rumours once she's in hollyweird and protected by the isolation and language barrier in spain?

It's all a game. If she gained 2 lbs then people would be all over her for how fat she is. I applaud her for mastering her eating disorder. When I was a size 3 & then went down to a size 0 I didn't delude myself into thinking I was "eating healthy" I wasn't eating at all. I remember the stomach cramps & headaches. Give me a pizza & a Coke anyday!!! I'm huge but to me being rail thin isn't fun. It takes a lot of determination to starve like that. I just don't have it in me. About Beckham. He is scrumptous when he's not speaking but his voice & accent are like nails on a blackboard!!!!!

anne-marie, yeah really. this is not meant to be sarcastic or funny as most of my responses are, but extremely controlled eating which leads to a weight far lower than one's norm (see Spice Girls era) and being 15% or more below dictated weight would be called anorexia. The fact that she eats only fish and pineapples (got this from another site) sets off bells. The smallest she could be is maybe a US 4. She's probably a 00 judging from pictures of her next to other thin celebs.

u said it perfectly, love dirt! just because a lot of celebrities are choosing a tinier figure these days does NOT mean the have eating disorders...healthier foods and more exercise will make you lose weight... i weight less than i did in the 90s also. posh is gorgeous- dont change a thing! lets pick on rosie or some celebrity overweights for a change!

Nah, she's not a size 2. I'm 5'4", 115 pounds and am either a size 0 or 2 depending on the store. She looks like she's 5'6" or 5'7" and maybe 100 pounds? Or 95? She is definitely smaller than a regular size 0. I bet she needs to get all her clothing taken in by seamstresses.

ok, watching what you eat and being controlled about it is NOT an eating disorder. It's caring about what you put into your body. I think not caring whether what you shove in your mouth is an eating disorder. I've had 2 kids, and I'm a size 2, fit into my pre-pregnancy clothes a week after I gave birth, (they each weighed 8 lbs at birth). I'm just a naturally slender person, it's not something I have to work at, I have a fast metabolism. Oh, and it helps that I don't shove whatever I see into my face, nor do I sit on my butt all day either. I don't think Posh is unnaturally skinny, nor do I think she has an eating disorder. Why don't we start telling all the hideously huge celebritites to go on a diet? Or tell them to start exercising. If you don't like Posh's body, it's your choice not to look like her. It's her body, I'm sure she wouldn't trade places with somebody who weighs 130lbs. Lay off and quit hating, and start caring about your own body.

I think Posh looks great in that picture.She looks like a size 2 to me which I personally don't find sickly thin. I rather look at pictures of her than jelly belly Britney Spears.

I'm almost 31, with two kids, and I'm a size 2. I am naturally slender, eat right, exercise daily, and I STILL don't look as thin as Posh. I love her to death...she's one of my favorite celebs...but she is lying to herself if she believes she doesn't have an eating disorder. She may not be anorexic, but she certainly has issues with her body and food. In her Spice Girl days, she was a lot healthier looking. I'd love for Posh to gain a few pounds so that she can look even more fabulous in those beautiful clothes she wears.

I think the rule should be if it's a story about Victoria it has to come with a picture of Becks, otherwise I'm not gonna care. I can even overlook his gloves.

Personally, I don't find a vain woman who only shops all the time that interesting. If it wasn't for her marriage, we wouldn't be reading a thing about her. ~Procrastinate Now! Don't Put It Off~ (Ellen)

I don't know about an eating disorder, but I think she's definitely too skinny.

Teddy Bear, does she have to work??????? Please. I wouldn't do a damn thing but shop, either. I mean, who needs to work?!??!? Whenever the Spice Girls had their biggest year, each one of them took home a good $25 mil in ONE YEAR. So she's set for life off her own money. And never mind what David brings to the table. Please, I'd never, ever, ever sing another lick.

I agree Annie Marie, she was bigger before but by no means over weight and she probably dieted and worked out more in her spice girls days than any other. When I look at her pictures I see nothing BUT an eating disorder!

That's bullshit. She definitely has an eating disorder. And she certainly had some meat on her bones during her Spice Girl days. You never saw her sternum once. Now she's a walking skeleton. I think it started after she had Brooklyn. She's been emaciated ever since. The crazy thing is that when she's pregnant she looks about 4-5 months when she's full-term. That ain't natural.

she looks pretty darn thin but somehow she carries it better than nicole richie or kate whatshername.

I just don't think it is natural for a woman who has has a couple of kids to be this extremely thin. Mommies should be cuddly, at least a little bit.

I don't think controlling what you eat is the same as having an eating disorder. For the most part I eat very healthy, but like she said, I also indulge a little every now and then. And I definitely don't have an eating disorder. By "control" I think she simply meant that she watches what and how much she eats.
