Instead of focusing on Nicole Richie's newest book The Truth About Diamonds Katie Courtic questioned Richie on her "very, very, very thin" body on the Today Show.
Richie claims she doesn't own a scale, doesn't know her weight loss digits, and that she "eats healthy". She did eat a banana the other day after her jog.
More proof of her eating can be found here, here, and here.

Conversation between Katie and Nicole over her weight loss:
COURIC: Meanwhile, I have to ask you about your weight because, of course, that is a point of controversy. You're absolutely itty-bitty. How much do you weigh? Like 90 pounds or something?
Ms. RICHIE: Oh, I don't know.
COURIC: Well, you're--you're very, very, very thin.
Ms. RICHIE: Yeah.
COURIC: A, do you have an eating disorder?
Ms. RICHIE: No, I don't.
COURIC: B, are you worried the example you're setting for young girls, getting so thin? I mean, you're--how much--how much weight did you lose? You're a small person, by the way.
Ms. RICHIE: Yes.
COURIC: How much weight did you lose?
Ms. RICHIE: I don't know, because I don't own a scale.
COURIC: But are you concerned, Nicole, that you're...
Ms. RICHIE: No, I'm--I'm not concerned. Only because I think that people think that I was just born at 21 and went on "The Simple Life." And people don't understand that I've had a whole life before that. I've always been thin. I'm also really short also.
Ms. RICHIE: But I--I eat healthy.
