The brunette beauty, who maintains that she “eats a lot” now, admits that her approach to eating hasn’t always been so wholesome.

“I started jogging and counting calories when I was just 14,” she explains. “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.”

But the singer and dancer has since found a better way to gauge her progress.

“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.’”
