5 Hands Diet: a source close to Victoria Beckham reveals exclusive insider information

It sounds like a particularly awful  type of Thai massage doesn't it?  You know, one of those excruciating experiences where two people massage you at once and all of a sudden you feel a creepy fifth hand upon a personal part of your anatomy.

No?  Maybe that's just me then.

This was all over the gossip sites yesterday as "a source close to" Posh Spice had revealed that she was keen to lose her baby weight fast, so was resorting to this fairly severe diet.  First things first.  Let's examine this statement.

1. Who is this "close source"?  He or she seems to pop up in EVERY single situation concerning Victoria Beckham or Jennifer Aniston.  Could it be that this is a made up entity and that the gossip magazine has simply made up the story?  Surely not.

2. Victoria Beckham didn't HAVE any baby weight to lose.  And you don't have to be an "insider" to know that.


Anyway now that we've dissected the invalidity of this story lets find out more about the diet.  Essentially it's a No Carbs Before Marbs type job coupled with extreme portion control.  Lean protein, in portions no bigger than a palm sized amount, will starve you thin in no time at all that's for sure.

From Grazia: The regime consists of having just five handfuls of food a day, and a source told the publication she has been snacking on tiny portions of smoked salmon, prawns with chilli, yellow-fin tuna sushi and scrambled eggs.

"Victoria wants to be in the best shape she can in time for New York Fashion Week," the insider claimed.

"Five days after giving birth, she started eating five high-protein meals a day accompanied by green vegetables, drinking gallons of water, and only snacking on goji berries and nuts."

Poor Posh.  Sounds miserable doesn't it?  Think you'd be able to do it?
