Former Spice Girl Flavors Up A Vegan Diet Book

Filed under: In The News — @ May 28, 2007

Victoria Beckham (aka “Posh Spice”) made dieting news last week

We live in an entertainment-driven society now and that point was made abundantly clear just last week when a famous British pop singer and wife of a popular professional soccer superstar. In Episode 55 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we get the dirty details about how the diet book industry went completely nuts after the super-thin “Posh Spice” bought a copy of a raunchy pro-vegan book entitled Skinny Bitch.

Since I had previously reviewed that book here at my blog, I decided to share my book review in spoken form in today’s podcast. Hear it for yourself RIGHT NOW:

Victoria Beckham, former member of the Spice Girls and spouse of soccer sensation David Beckham, probably had no idea she was going to be at the center of attention when she decided to buy that copy of Skinny Bitch last week. But that’s exactly what happened and sales of this disgusting book zoomed up Amazon UK charts to #10 as well as #200 on

Episode 55 gave me the chance to reveal exactly what this book written by two militant anti-meat women who have never had to deal with a weight problem in their life are all about. The fact that they describe people who follow the Atkins low-carb diet as a “moron” is indicative of their vile and despicable nature.

Have you seen this absurd book from former models Kim Barnouin and Rory Freedman? What do you think about celebrities who can make an obscure diet book like “Skinny Bitch” and instant overnight bestseller? Share your feedback about this and why you think our society has become to dependent on what actors, singers, and athletes have to say, especially on the subject of diet and health.

As has been the tradition on Thursdays for the past few weeks, I will be airing yet another interview from the Nashville obesity conference in the next podcast show from a man named Dr. Kurt Kraft. While he is not a low-carb supporter, per se, Dr. Kraft is at least respectful and open to the possibility that this way of eating can help with obesity. Tune in on Thursday for that engaging conversation!
