How did Ulrika respond?

“I spend my life cooking, eating and feeding.
“I’m trying to put on weight just not nice to hear unhelpful comments but I see where you are coming from. Sending you lots of love.”
“Goes against everything I’ve ever believed in”
Ulrika has been honest and open with issues regarding her own weight and female body image.
In 2011, she hit back at suggestions she suffered from an eating disorder.
Dropping to seven-and-a-half-stone, she explained that a painful degenerative disc disease caused the weight loss.
“It was this suggestion that I was inflicting all this on myself willingly that got to me,” she said.
“It was incredibly frustrating because the suggestion that I would risk my health for the perfect body goes against everything I’ve ever believed in.
“I’ve never been obsessed about the way my body looks – all I’ve ever wanted is to be healthy, because without our health, we have nothing.”
