Nicole Scherzinger loves eating pasta, rice and cheese.
The svelte singer has a weakness for Mexican food, and she can’t resist piling her burritos with cheese.
But after an indulgent summer spent in her native Hawaii, Nicole found her clothes felt tighter and a diet was in order.
“I love pasta and rice, cheese and wine. Me and Mexican at midnight is not good but melted cheese is so yummy,” she told Britain’s Fabulous magazine.
“I got to LA and realised I couldn’t fit into my jeans any more. I made my portions smaller and cut back on eating late at night. I had many months of not caring what I looked like, but at the end of the day, this is my business and I wanted to look my best.”
Nicole has drawn criticism for her slender frame recently after splitting from Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton.
The 35-year-old star has been open in the past about battling an eating disorder in her twenties, when she suffered with bulimia.
But the former Pussycat doll doesn’t dwell on the past and says water is the secret to her flawless complexion.
“I drink only water. I’ve never had a carbonated beverage, well I suppose a beer, but Coke or 7 Up – I’ve never had that. I don’t think fizzy drinks taste good and I love water. It’s all about hydrating the skin,” she said.
