Chantelle Houghton on post-baby weight: ‘Diets are so boring!’

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!
