Nichole Scherzinger currently stars alongside Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh on X-Factor: Celebrity as the star judges each week. She is known in the industry for her incredible singing, dancing, and acting abilities but another thing she is well known for is her incredible healthy physique.
The former Pussycat Dolls lead singer regularly treats her four million followers on Instagram to images of her working out and showing off her incredible fitness and flexibility. But, how does the superstar stay in shape?
Previously, Nicole revealed that she hasn’t always been content with her body and once opened up about her battle with bulimia, sadly revealing it made her feel “imprisoned”.
“Growing up I really struggled with feeling like I fit in. I even had a hard time feeling like I fit into my own skin,” she told Cosmopolitan.
“I was just really hard on myself, I had a lot of struggles with self-esteem and a lot of insecurities and later on that resulted in my having eating disorders because of my body dysmorphia.
“I was just really hard on myself growing up and I didn’t like myself very much.”

However, now Nicole regularly posts affirmative quotes and body-positive messages to her social media.
Back in August, the Hawaiian-beauty opened up to Daily Mail Australia and revealed that now she isn’t “as strict as you would think” with her diet and is a “firm believer of everything in moderation.”
However, she has previously revealed to Cosmopolitan Magazine that she would wake up in the night to work out, all in an attempt to get smaller thighs.
Nicole revealed that she starts her day off with a hearty meal of protein and carbohydrates for breakfast, followed by a smaller lunch – but she isn’t afraid to indulge.
“For breakfast I love eggs and toast and smoked salmon or bacon, or porridge,” she said.
“For lunch I like maybe some soup or some sushi. For dinner, anything from pasta to rice, and meats and veggies, to sushi.
“When I’m going to indulge, I love pasta, pizza, I love Mexican with lots of cheese.
“I love French fries, or crisps – salt and vinegar crisps. In terms of snacks: almonds, coconut water, bits of coconut, baby carrots.”
As well as keeping track of what Nicole eats, she incorporates exercise into her daily routine to stay healthy and fit.
In an interview with Women’s Health she said: “In a typical workout I would run on the treadmill maybe 20 mins, then try to do some squats, some sit-ups on the exercise ball, some yoga stretches.
“Drink lots of water. Don’t deprive yourself of anything because eventually, you’ll crave it and then you might binge on it. Everything in moderation.”
