Kym Marsh is often updating her fans on her lifestyle, including her diet and exercise routines. Last month the star, who recently left Coronation Street, revealed she drinks “skinny lager”, a low calorie option.
Stress and loss can cause weight loss, but focusing on eating well and exercising can boost the mood after such an event.
The star seems happy and healthy now, but sadly recalled how being called “fat” on the talent show that propelled her to fame in 2001, Popstars, took a toll on her mental health.
The judge Nigel Lythgoe advised the young star to lose weight after telling her: “Christmas may be gone but I see the goose is still fat.”
Kym told Fabulous magazine: “It did affect me. Of course it did.
She told The Mirror: “It was about three years ago when I started to lose weight. I was in skimpy outfits all the time on telly, and the camera also adds weight to you, so I thought I’d do something.
“I started to do a bit of exercise, which I hadn’t done for years. You get a bit older and weight is harder to lose.
“Then I cut the Coca-Cola out and started to notice the difference and then just decided to keep it up.”
Michael Mosley’s diet plan has sparked interest as Lose a Stone in 21 Days with Michael Mosley aired last night.
