How did Rosanna Davison eat herself beautiful?

I’M CONFUSED. I can’t make my mind up if Rosanna Davison is being a bit thick or being an evil genius.

She has managed to get the whole country talking about her cook book Eat Yourself Beautiful, so I suspect it is the latter.

There were some great quotes being thrown around Irish media this week attributed to  the wannabe-nutritionist.

And all that came after the controversial author got in hot water last week when she naively said that gluten in food is “responsible for a huge range of medical conditions from autism spectrum disorders to schizophrenia to arthritis”. 

Whatever you think about the former Miss World’s cooking credentials, no one could possibly take her medical advice seriously. Right?

Wrong. The country went ballistic. 

Luckily for the 31 year old, that particular controversy was soon forgotten as she managed to sweep it under the carpet just in time for her book launch last Tuesday in House on Leeson Street. I didn’t get the invite by the way.

But, whatever. 

In one interview I read, while defending the previous week’s unusual and completely unfounded claims, she actually used the words: I never want to tell people what to eat.

If it was 99.9 percent of the population I could possibly buy into that line but because she said that quote at the launch of her new cook book, I find it remarkable. 

But the best quote that came from the night was in The Daily Mail when she said: “I ate my way to this body.”

If I had been invited to the event and I had been present to hear her say that I definitely would have had one follow up question, considering her constant denials through the years…

“You ate your way to that body?

So Rosanna, what exactly do breast implants taste like?”
