Nicole Richie is trying to put eating disorder rumors to rest by chowing down in front of multiple paparazzi.

The celebutante was snapped out in Malibu on Saturday with buddy Brody Jenner stuffing her face with a huge burger and sipping smoothies at a local burger stand.

The petite heiress recently appeared on the "Tyra Banks Show" and revealed that she has hired a nutritionist and is trying to gain back some weight. The "Simple Life" star expressed to Tyra how much stress the media attention on her body causes her, making it hard for her to gain weight.
