A photo snapped by paparazzi of everyone’s favorite ex-Spice Girl, Victoria Beckham, buying a copy of Rory Freedman’s Skinny Bitch has sparked a massive spike in sales of the diet book that has been described as “a no-nonsense, tough-love guide for savvy girls who want to stop eating crap and start looking fabulous.” What interests me in particular about this little piece of gossip is that if Victoria and her fans follow the book’s advice, we’ll have even more talent batting for the vegan team pretty soon, since Skinny Bitch is a fantastic piece of advocacy for a vegan diet. Here’s what Ingrid Newkirk says about the book:
“Skinny Bitch combines a ‘take no prisoners’ attitude with cogent analysis and scientific proof to make an engaging, wickedly irreverent, and iron-clad case for eating healthfully. If I had it in my power, I’d provide a free copy to every young woman in the developed world; we could then become, instead of the fattest next generation in history, the healthiest.”
Enjoy the new diet, Victoria. And thank you, Rory—you’re amazing.
