Yoko Ono has dismissed reports her late husband John Lennon suffered from an eating disorder.
Author Debra Sharon Davis alleges in her book BackStage Pass Vip that Lennon had issues with food and would make himself sick after eating binges.
She says, "Lennon was confused about his obsession with food. One must also realise that at that time, the public and the media were unaware of bulimia as an addiction and health risk - which made it all the more frightening for John Lennon. He literally had no point-of-reference on what he was experiencing."
However, Ono is adamant the claims are untrue, telling Britain's Daily Mirror, "John did not have an eating disorder. Sometimes he slipped and ate a bar of chocolate. His diets included (a) vegetarian diet, macrobiotic diet and, very rarely, a juice diet. All of the above are internationally approved health diets."

I'm a huge Lennon fan (HUGE) but no way was his diet appropriate, for his height at least. He was 5'11" and only 130lb when he was murdered! That's very underweight for a male (or anyone) of that height. Now, I'm not in the habit of knocking Yoko, there are plenty out there who take delight in that, but I really don't think she was the best influence in his life and changed John into something that seemed more like a meek weakling rather than the strong outspoken John we all remembered. I often wondered what her agenda was. He really seemed to be walking the line she drew and apparently the diet (mainly microbiotic) was at her insistence. Didn't do him any favours and there is a pic of him naked from 1980. He looked like he lived in a concentration camp. He was skeletal and not good. Who knows if it was an eating disorder, illness or the bad diet he was on. Some claim he was taking heroin but I doubt it and hope not. If it was his diet, it was obviously wasn't right for him. He was a mere shadow of his former self. And he was much healthier and happier looking before he met Yoko.
