Halliwell: I Want Kids So I've Ditched Dieting

Ex-SPICE GIRL GERI HALLIWELL ditched her obsessive dieting regime when she feared she would never be able to have children.

The LOOK AT ME star lost a massive amount of weight after she left the all-conquering girl group and relaunched herself as a solo artist - but Geri found the radical change of physique had seriously affected her body.

She explains, "At one point, regardless of how fit I was looking, my body just wasn't working properly. My menstrual cycle had disappeared, unsurprisingly with the weight loss and stress.

"But the thought of not being able to have children really was a wake up call for me.

"So nowadays when it's that time of the month and I feel grouchy and my boobs swell up two cup sizes and my clothes feel tight, I try and see it as a blessing from Mother Nature.

"I don't want to be back abusing myself with food or exercise. So I eat three meals a day with two snacks, my food portions have increased and my exercise has decreased. My body has gained a little weight but actually it feels really healthy."
