Nicole Scherzinger Talks About Her Struggle With Bulimia

nicolescherzinger We all know that Nicole Scherzinger has an amazing body and we probably all envy it, but what we just learned was that her body has struggled through bulimia. Scherzinger battled with the disease in her 20’s revealing to British Cosmopolitan;

“I didn’t think anyone knew in my group or in my family because I hid it that well, I was so ashamed.  I knew it wasn’t normal or healthy because I was hurting myself through this cycle of disordered eating.  It was my drug, my addiction.  It’s an endless vicious cycle.”

Nicole has never been shy about showing her body to the world, but she’s kept her bulimia a secret until now.  The singer knew she needed help when her manager found her blacked out on the floor.

“I had started losing my voice, I couldn’t sing at shows, and then I remember my manager finding me passed out of the floor in Malta or in the South of France.  I thought, ‘I’m going to lose everything I love if I don’t love myself.'”

If you’re struggling with bulimia, Nicole wants you to know that you can get past it;

“It robs you of living your life.  But you can recover and you can get rid of it forever.  I did and that’s why it’s so important for me to share my story.  I felt so alone… but I made myself so alone.  You hide it from the world, you isolate yourself.  But you can beat it-do not give up because you’re so special and you’re meant for such great things.”

Screen shot 2014-07-04 at 7.42.00 AM

 

One thing about the rich and famous, they know how to work hard and play hard too! Holidays are always a fun time, but when you  suddenly step on the scale and your regretting over-undulging at that BBQ, you may say to yourself “it wasn’t really worth it!” To beat the BBQ Blues, we take some tips from some celebrities who know to have a guilt free holiday.

 

This week we spotted celebs both on the east coast and west coast in their sweats heading for the hills, or the gym putting in some extra time in work before their 4th of July weekend approached.

 

Kim Kardashian was spotted in NYC hair up, chillen with no make up on leaving the gym with a large bottle of water, in what it looks like rehydrating after an intense workout schedule. The reality star knows the importance of putting in work in the gym, she lost a total of 55lbs pounds since having baby North. She admits, that losing the baby weight was the hardest challenge she has faced in life. Kim explains the type of workouts she likes to do saying;

“I like to mix it up. I do Pilates, Barry’s Bootcamp and hikes with my daughter in the stroller. It’s really hard to push it uphill!”

 

In addition to her workouts, she adheres to the Atkin diet which consists of High proteins and low carbs. It was rumored that Carbs were banned from her house before her wedding to avoid all temptation. We having a feeling this holiday Kim will stick to the kabobs, and a burger with no bun!

 

On the other side of the states, Lea michelle was spotted taking a hike by her lonesome thru the Hollywood hills. This actress sure knows how to get her act together, especially when the 4th of July is approaching. She tends to stick to workouts that she enjoys, admitting that being outdoors is where she has the most fuun putting in a sweat;

I love hiking… love being outdoors, I love bike riding. Just stuff that’s fun! 

Contrary to Kim K., Lea Michelle may not be packing on the meats to her plate, She was a vegan for two years. Although she goes back and forth with her vegan lifestlye, she explains her preference of food choice doesn’t depend on an up coming role or holiday, but what her body tells her;

I really feel that you need to kind of listen to your body and what your body is telling you to eat. So I was a vegan for about two years. 

 

This Holiday take some tips form these two beau’s and get in a good sweat, and be picky at the bbq to prevent any post BBQ Blues! Have a Happy and safe 4th of july!

Wendy Williams Is Turning 50 & Loses 30!

pinkww1

 

How you doin’ Wendy?

From the looks of it the New Jersey Talk Show Host is doing pretty well. She is turning 50 in just a few weeks and has lost over 30 lbs!  Usually known for her opinions on all the latest celebrity gossip, Wendy is not one to bite her tongue. But in celebration of her upcoming birthday, she presses the pause button on the celeb talk, and dishes on some more serious matters; getting older and her desire to live a healthier lifestyle.

 

See what she had to say from an excerpt from Parades Mind your body column;

 

Wendy, how do you Mind Your Body with what you eat?
I turn 50 on July 18, and I feel fabulous. When I was 25, 50 seemed so old, but I wouldn’t trade 50 for 25, 35, or 45. Life is good! I lost 30 pounds in preparation for 50 and took two years to do it. I haven’t been this light on my feet since ninth grade. I’m making little changes in life and going to the gym consistently twice a week. I hate the gym, love food, eat a lot of protein, but don’t deny any food. Yesterday I had a big steak salad that was mouth-watering. Today, I started with eggs. For lunch I had steamed vegetables from last night’s Chinese food order. I’m obsessed with ranch dressing powder and I sprinkle it on eggs, hot popcorn, and those steamed vegetables. I’m also a calorie counter and take a lot of time shopping at the grocery store, reading labels.

 

What about your physical activity?
I do a one-hour session twice weekly that incorporates weights and Pilates. My goal at 50 is not to gain muscle, but raise heart rate. And I don’t want to slump as I get older.

 

What could you do better for yourself?
To add a third day of activity, I could walk in my beautiful neighborhood, but I don’t. I could also do better with my candy intake, but I’m like a kid. And it’s odd, because I’m not a dessert person really. But I like Jolly Ranchers, three or four of them at a time, and I like bubble gum when I could chew dainty Dentyne. I do brush my teeth twice a day.

 

What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learned about health so far?
It has to be to drink a lot of water, because it’s good for your body and makes your skin gorgeous. Your skin is the first thing people see. Always wash makeup off and moisturize, and you don’t need to spend $200 on a moisturizer. Good skin doesn’t have to be expensive!

 

Wendy is always keeping it real! Looking great girl!

 

What do you think of Wendy’s weight loss? Can you tell the difference?
