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.”

Nicole Scherzinger Says She’s Naturally Fabulous

Let’s be honest, she didn’t use those exact words, but she pretty much meant it.  While most people in the spotlight diet constantly and workout seven days a week, Nicole does not have to do half of that.  But even though that is the case now, it doesn’t mean she has never dieted.

Perez Hilton reported that the singer looks the way she does thanks to her genetics.  If that’s true, can we all get a little of her genetics?  When asked about dieting Nicole said,

“I used to diet a lot and now I don’t believe in them because you’re going to binge. your metabolism gets messed up and then your weight is going to yo-yo.  I did that for a long time.”

She does keep track of meals and what she eats though.  She either has six small meals a day or three main meals.  But when she eats like that, she doesn’t feel bad about having a cookie.  She actually said that she cannot live with chips or cake.  Who can blame her?
