42-year-old Melanie Chisholm, more popularly known as MEL C (Sporty Spice) from ‘The Spice Girls’, just revealed something very shocking!
Mel just opened up with BBC Good Food about her own personal struggles with eating. She says: “I joined the Spice Girls when I was 20 and it was an insane time. I developed an eating disorder. I was in the spotlight, being photographed constantly, and I started to become self conscious of my body image.”
Mel continued: “I was in denial for a long time but I always wanted to get better — I had talking therapies and holistic therapies, like acupuncture. Sport became really important to me too. When I was a teenager, I didn’t know the difference between a protein and a carb. I love to be physically fit and, obviously, to really push yourself, you have to make sure you eat the right things. I like to think I have a healthy relationship with food now, and I love to cook. We’re so much more aware of nutrition nowadays.” For more click here.
