Vicky Pattison Reveals Her ‘Obsession’ With Her Weight Loss Caused Her To ‘Look Ill’
The Geordie star thinks she took things a bit too far.
Vicky Pattison’s incredible transformation gave us all serious gym inspiration back when her fitness DVD first topped charts, but now the Ex On The Beach star has opened up about the dark side of her huge weight loss.
While Vicky is currently looking incredible at 9 stone, she’s revealed to the Mirror Online that there was a point when she took her dieting and exercise to an extreme, and ended up looking ‘ill’ instead of healthy.
Chatting to the site about her plummeting size (she was a tiny 8 stone 4 at one point), Vicky explained that she was a ‘complete obsessive’ about her regime.
“I got to the point where I was counting how many blueberries I ate for breakfast. I got to the point where I looked quite ill when I was at my lowest.
"Then one day I just woke. I realised how much I missed going out. I missed my friends, going out to eat, going to Nandos. And I realised I could do without training three times a day.
"I'm just a normal person and I didn't want to be like that forever."
Luckily, our Geordie lass has since seen the light, and now has an ‘everything in moderation’ attitude to her lifestyle.
She added: “Life is for living… [If] I had avocados for dinner every day, I'd be so miserable.
"I like to order pizza on a Sunday or have a takeaway on a Saturday. Then I simply get back on it on the Monday. Be good 70-80% of the time and for the rest, let your hair down!"
Well, there’s some advice we can definitely get on board with.
