X Factor Judge Nicole Scherzinger talks about diets and learning to accept her body. Nicole says: "I started jogging and counting calories when I was just 14. I've been on every diet you can imagine. By the time I was in the Pussycat Dolls, I was on the scale all the time. It became my enemy because I noticed that when I exercised really hard, I'd gain weight."
The Pussycat Dolls singer says she no longer weighs herself: 'Now that I'm in my 30s, I've stepped off the scale - I just go by how my clothes fit. I'm more accepting of my body and have learned to really embrace it. These days it's all about finding balance."
The star, who recetly split with long term love Lewis Hamilton, says: 'My new motto is: "Stay active, eat everything in moderation, and stop being so tough on myself".'
Nicole says that depite being so petite, she eats huge amounts. 'Actually, I eat - a lot!' she tells the US fitness magazine. 'Even with my crazy schedule, I never skip meals.
'I'll often have soft-boiled eggs, smoked salmon and whole wheat toast for breakfast; cold cuts, veggies and fruit for lunch; and usually chicken or fish with rice and more vegetables for dinner.'
