Nicole Scherzinger no longer tries to avoid carbs.

The former Pussycat Doll famously struggled with bulimia but now eats healthily and works out to stay in shape.

Her favourite breakfast is eggs Benedict and the Hawaiian-born beauty urges anyone to allow themselves treats in moderations.

"I don't avoid carbs, no. I've been on every single kind of diet in the world and none of them work. It's just not healthy," she explained to British magazine OK!

"Eventually your body wants carbs so when you have them it sticks to you because it's not used to carbs. That's how it was for me. Eat the carbs at breakfast and lunch but not at dinner. Be a little more conscious of that."

Since opening up about her eating disorder, the brunette has helped young girls in similar situations.

Nicole shared her top tip when it comes to maintaining a healthy weight.

"A good thing to do is not to eat so late," she advised.

"If you eat then you're running around and you have a good four or five hours before you go to sleep without eating and then you have a good eight hours of sleep without eating, your metabolism neutralises itself all over again."

Along with eating sensibly, the 34-year-old likes to hit the gym and spinning classes.

While she might not always feel like exercising, the adrenaline from an intense session keeps her motivated.

"Sometimes you just don't want to do it - let's keep it real," she smiled.

"But when you do, you feel on top of the world. And if you stay at it then it becomes addictive because it's a natural high. You're not only getting stronger physically, but your mind and spirit are getting stronger. I just find it really uplifting."
