Nicole Scherzinger: Learn to love yourself

Nicole Scherzinger

Nicole Scherzinger has spoken about her battle with bulimia and how she now leads a healthy lifestyle.

The brunette beauty struggled with eating disorders for much of her life, but now eats well and exercises regularly.

Her figure is the envy of many, but the 34-year-old says many people in the industry rarely break a sweat.

"You know what, they probably don't work out! I know a lot of actresses and they're kind of lazy!" she laughed to British magazine OK!

Towards the end of last year, Nicole spoke to VH1's Behind the Music about her battle with bulimia.

Since publicly discussing her illness, she has gone on to help young girls in a similar position.

"You feel a connection, you don't feel alone. I empowered me to want to help other people," she smiled.

"It's like I'm life coaching while I'm life coaching myself as well."

The star is now healthy and happy and in a loving relationship with racing driver Lewis Hamilton, who she credits with helping her overcome her body issues.

Nicole tries to be honest when giving advice to a new generation of self-conscious women.

"I was talking to a young girl the other day and I told her not to be so hard on herself and I said, 'Enjoy what you have now, because it only gets worse,'" she explained.

"I don't think that helped her! But you don't realise what you have until it's gone and it gets harder as every year goes by. You have to learn to love and embrace yourself and your differences."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aries:

You will have to defer to others, which makes you anxious. There's never any problem when you're in control. You know how to act quickly and decisively. When others are at the helm, progress grinds to a halt. People deliberate endlessly over simple matters. Instead of putting pressure on the person in charge, make a strategic retreat. If you act like you don't care about the outcome of a situation, they won't be paralysed with uncertainty. You have a tendency to make people nervous.More
