Eating experts criticized Kate Moss on Thursday after the supermodel said a certain phrase, used on Web sites that encourage girls to avoid eating, was her motto, Associated Press reports.

Kate said in an interview with the fashion Web site WWD, that one of her mottos was, "Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels."

Mary George of British eating-disorder charity Beat called Kate's words "very unfortunate."

"Comments like this make it even more difficult for young people struggling with an eating disorder," she said.

Model Katie Green told The Sun newspaper the comments were "shocking and irresponsible." Katie has been campaigning to stop the use of ultra-thin "size zero" models.

Kate's modeling agency, Storm, said her words had been misinterpreted.

"This was part of a longer answer Kate gave during a wider-ranging interview, which has unfortunately been taken out of context and completely misrepresented," the agency said in a statement. "For the record, Kate does not support this as a lifestyle choice."
