Kate Moss Causes Slimming Storm

Kate Moss has sparked controversy after being accused of making comments which could promote extreme slimming.

The supermodel caused outrage after revealing she tries to live by the motto "nothing tastes as good as skinny feels".

She said in an interview on fashion news website WWD: "There are loads of mottos. There's, 'Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels'. That's one of them. You try and remember, but it never works."

The 35-year-old British beauty - who has a seven-year-old daughter, Lila Grace - has now been accused of encouraging young people to develop eating disorders.

Dr Anthea Fursland, a psychologist who specialises in treating eating disorders, told the Sydney Morning Herald newspaper: "The term is used in anorexia websites to reinforce to themselves and each other to pursue thinness.

"I think it could have quite a large impact having someone so famous saying that. She is just giving credence to a belief that we are trying to move away from. If they're at the cusp and feeling vulnerable, that might send them back into the pursuit of thinness."

Model Katie Green - who launched the Say No To Size Zero campaign in the UK earlier this year - also blasted Kate's remarks, warning that websites which encourage eating disorders will "go crazy" over her comments, believing she supports their cause.

She said: "There are 1.1 million eating disorders in the UK alone. Kate Moss's comments are likely to cause many more.

"If you read any of the pro-anorexia websites they go crazy for quotes like these."
