Holly Madison: I've quit junk food for baby

Holly Madison has given up being a fast food "junkie" since becoming pregnant.

Holly and her music festival producer boyfriend Pasquale Rotella are expecting a baby girl in early March. The former reality TV star believes she is looking better than ever after ditching her bad eating habits.

"Since I've been pregnant, I've lost my taste for fast food," Holly confessed to the US edition of OK! magazine. "I used to be the biggest McDonald's junkie and now I don't like it anymore. I used to be the biggest fast-food connoisseur, and now I've really lost my taste for it."

The 34-year-old star never used to take good care of herself. Holly lived life for each day, and survived on excessive amounts of caffeine.

"I think my secrets are being health-conscious and having fun with the whole change," she explained. "I've been much more health-conscious since I've been pregnant, because I'm worrying about the health of my baby, and not just my health. Before, I was lackadaisical about my own health. I was just like 'whatever.' My goal was to get through the day, and do all the jobs I had to do, and try and be Miss Overachiever. Do my five Starbucks runs - I was constantly running around with this huge Starbucks coffee, and eating whatever I wanted, as long as I was somewhat in shape, and not really thinking too much about my health."

Holly has changed her attitude since finding out she is pregnant. Having someone else's wellbeing to consider has made her healthier as a result.

"But when you have a baby inside you, you're like 'whoa!' Anything can happen here, I've got to give this baby all the nutrients it needs and really take care of myself, so this is definitely the healthiest I've ever been in my life," she smiled.
