star trainer Tracy Anderson wanted to have an eating disorder

The personal trainer to stars including Victoria Beckham, Cheryl Cole, Madonna, and Gwyneth Paltrow has sparked fury with a recent remark.

Pint-sized Tracy said she wanted to suffer from anorexia or bulimia when she was a teenager so she could shift puppy fat and be a dancer.

The Hollywood health freak, 35, revealed: “After my parents divorced when I was 17 my mom worked three jobs so I could come to New York and train to be a ballet dancer. But I didn’t make it – I got too fat and couldn’t shift the weight. I tried everything short of an eating disorder – which I really wanted to have, actually.

A spokesman for anorexia charity Beat blasted: “It’s a disgrace that people who are role models make comments like that."


it's sad she felt like that--but these touchy people need to stop. She wasn't promoting eating disorders, she was just saying that's how desperate she was to lose weight.
