Nicole Scherzinger Started Counting Calories When She Was 14 Years Old

X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger, who recently split from long time boyfriend Lewis Hamilton, has revealed that she began to count calories at the age of 14, and also started to work out in order to stay slim. She describes her weight as her “enemy”, because she used to pile on the pounds after working out. According to Nicole, she spent a lot of time weighing herself, especially during her time with the Pussycat Dolls:

“I started jogging and counting calories when I was just 14. I’ve been on every diet you can imagine. By the time I was in the Pussycat Dolls, I was on the scale all the time. It became my enemy because I noticed that when I exercised really hard, I’d gain weight.”

Nicole says that now she is in her 30’s, she tries not to worry about her figure as much, and doesn’t deny herself anything. She is generally more comfortable in her own body and just tries to do everything in moderation:

“Now that I’m in my 30s, I’ve stepped off the scale. I just go by how my clothes fit. I’m more accepting of my body and have learned to really embrace it. These days it’s all about finding balance. My new motto is: ‘Stay active, eat everything in moderation, and stop being so tough on myself.’ “
