Victoria Beckham is so desperate to lose the weight she gained while pregnant with her new baby CRUZ - she's ignoring doctor's advice and following Elizabeth Hurley's controversial diet.

The ex-SPICE GIRL gave birth to her third son with soccer star husband David Beckham on Sunday (20FEB05) and she's so impressed by her pal Hurley's dramatic weight loss following the birth of her two-year-old son DAMIAN, she's been telephoning the actress for slimming tips, reports British magazine CLOSER.

But doctor's warn Victoria could be at risk of contracting bone and muscle wasting conditions if she follows the BEDAZZLED beauty's one-meal-a-day diet - and may even jeopardise her chances of conceiving another child.

A close friend says, "Liz spoke to Victoria about how she lost her weight after having Damian. She passed on tips, like not eating carbs after 5pm and only having one meal a day."
