Mel C: How motherhood cured my eating disorders

Melanie Chisholm has confessed that becoming has ended her lifelong battle with depression and eating disorders.

The singer formerly known as Sporty Spice gave birth to her daughter Scarlet eight months ago and has since realised that calorie-counting doesn’t have to rule her life.

Mel (35) says, “I feel completely different about my body now. I’d had a healthier attitude towards food for a long time, but pregnancy eradicated any feeling that I could go down that rocky road again.”

She adds, “At the end of the day, the most important thing is your baby’s health. Now instead of saying I better not have pudding, I say, ‘Bring it on!'”
