In a refreshingly honest celebrity approach to dieting, Chantelle Houghton has spoken out against fad diets.
However the mother-of-one has admitted that she wants to be healthier and rein in the junk food after going up two dress sizes.
Speaking in her weekly magazine column, the 29-year-old- whose landmark birthday is next week, wrote:
‘People have said it’s refreshing for someone in the public eye to be open about struggling with their weight after having a baby.'
What junk food? Chantelle looked great as she stepped out last week
‘Like loads of other women, I don’t have time to go to the gym and I don’t want to get a babysitter just so I can run on a treadmill!
‘I’ve been on diets all my life and it’s so boring. When I get a moment to myself, I just want to sit down and have a treat!
‘I’ll have to rein it in a bit though – the nice comments have made me eat more. I’ve had a Chinese meal, an Indian takeaway and a Nando’s this week!’
The mother to 1-year-old Dolly was previously a brunette in 2010
The reality star, who had a very public split with ex fiancé and father of her child Alex Reid, gave herself a mini makeover before hitting the big 3-0 next week.
Visiting a salon on Monday, the single mother swapped her trademark blonde locks for a glossy chestnut mane.
Looking good girlfriend!
