    Unhappy Anorexics find Victoria Beckham an inspiration

    She may no longer be the youngest or even the most beautiful of the Wags but thanks to a stringent diet she has made sure she is still the thinnest.

    The star, who is a mother of three, has been eagerly showing off her tiny frame in a selection of tiny shorts and skin-tight T-shirts while out with the rest of the wives and girlfriends of the England team in Germany.

    Now, however, new fears have been raised over Victoria Beckham's skeletal frame after it emerged she is cited as a 'thinspiration' on pro-anorexia websites.

    The 31-year-old star, who admitted she had an eating disorder while she is in the Spice Girls but claims to not have any problems now, is also cited by many anorexics as the celebrity they would most like to look like.

    'Beautiful children, beautiful husband and she, herself, is about perfect. I wonder if there is a published Victoria Beckham "diet" out there,' said one recent posting on a pro-anorexia website.

    Another said: 'I envy her thin legs and chest. She has beautiful bones sticking out of her chest.'

    While on a third website, as anorexics discussed whether she was the 'best thinspiration', her fans wrote: 'Posh is a major hottie! I love her arms!', 'If I could look like her I would never had a problem with anything!' and 'I think she's beautiful! I wish I looked like her!'

    Marjorie Wallace, chief executive of the mental health charity SANE, which did a recent report into the pro-anorexia websites said: 'There is an element of the worship of the thin and that is where bringing celebrities into it can be so dangerous.

    'These websites integrate pictures of beautiful celebrities with other pictures showing ravaged sufferers of eating disorders and it reinforces the belief that it is an achievement to be thin.'

    But it is not only on websites that Victoria Beckham is cited as an inspiration.

    Dr Dee Dawson of the Rhodes Farm clinic in London, which specialises in eating disorders, said: 'Victoria Beckham is usually the celebrity most people that I see want to look like.

    'She is horribly thin - you can see all her ribs - and she is not normal. People with eating disorders look at her and models like Kate Moss and think they are the proper weight to be and I have to tell them that she is not.

    'Just by looking at her you can see all her muscles have been eaten away.

    'I tell people that they should take inspiration from celebrities like Catherine Zeta Jones or Coleen McLoughlin [girlfriend of UK football player Wayne Rooney]. They both look beautiful without having stick-insect catwalk bodies.'

    Mrs Beckham admitted she had suffered from an eating disorder while she was in the Spice Girls - as have her bandmates Geri Halliwell and Melanie Chisholm.

    And following a public outcry about her weight after her first son Brooklyn was born she admitted that she was too thin but insisted that she eats like a pig.

    Last night a spokesman for Victoria Beckham refused to comment.

    I'm hardly surprised Victoria is a hit in pro-ana websites. And so would the likes of Nicole Richie and other famous lollipopheads.

    A correlation between skeletal celeb images flooding the media and increase of eating disorders? Shocker.

    'stick-insect catwalk bodies'? Why mention the 'cat-walk'? That makes it sound almost aspirational. Just say 'stick-insect, furry, bony, scary, horror-show bodies'. Why equate that body with a high-paying, glamourous job?

    I remember reading that if David Beckham talks about them splitting up, she threatens not to eat. She's seriously screwed up.

    This is just sick!!! And sad!!! WHY would ANYONE want to look like that alien-head on a lollipop-stick, with her balding hair, pig snout, brittle-looking bones sticking out everywhere, permanent frown of apparent happiness, and awful discolored leathery skin? "Posh" is one of the UGLIEST women i've ever seen.

    I dont think is Victoria's fault to be in these webpages and be an inspiration.
    Victoria is also a victim.

    It is the fault of society, fashion designers, tv & movie producers, magazines, etc...
    They are showing us day after day that being slender & fit is the perfet figure. And if to this you add some kind of insecurity, you will really never know till what point you are as slender as you should be.

    Anorexic dont see themselves as all bones, but fat. It is a disease. A very sad & mortal disease.

    Default Victoria Beckham is an inspiration to anorexics

    Victoria Beckham is an inspiration to anorexics.

    The former pop star and full time footballer’s wife has denied rumours that she is currently suffering from an eating disorder, but admitted in her biography ‘Learning To Fly’ that she did have an extremely controlling attitude towards food while she was in the Spice Girls.

    Posh is now featured on dozens of pro-anorexia sites thanks to her concave thighs, lollipop head and frankly emaciated body.

    According to FemaleFirst, one recent posting on a pro-anorexia website said of Posh: "I envy her thin legs and chest. She has beautiful bones sticking out of her chest."



    This is really sad. This is a grown woman, who had three pregnancies and she looks like that? Clearly unhealthy.
