We’ve known for some time that Victoria Beckham doesn’t like to smile; now it’s clear, unfortunately, that she also doesn’t like to eat.

The former Spice Girl, 41, admitted years ago that she was “probably very close” to an eating disorder at one time, adding, “I was very obsessed. I mean, I could tell you the fat content and calorie content in absolutely anything.”

She claimed to be over all that, however, after entering motherhood (son Brooklyn, 16, is the oldest of her four children with husband David Beckham).

But it looks like her obsessions are back. Although Victoria’s rep denies any problems, a source who’s served her at a Brentwood, Calif., restaurant reveals that Posh “asks that only a certain calorie count be put on her plate at a time. She’ll make diet modifications to dishes she orders but won’t even swallow the food when it comes; she chews it to get the taste, then spits it into a napkin.”

At least she hides her behavior from the kids: “Only David sees her spit food out,” says an insider close to the designer.

Here’s hoping she can turn things around again—and soon!
