The 25-year-old Channel 4 star — who’s also the author of a memoir, ‘Scarlett Says’ — has been documenting her weight loss success on Instagram with numerous selfies and, in a recent interview, she spoke about her success as well as her ongoing struggle. She spoke of her impetus to lose weight which had nothing to do with appearance or with being subject to social media bullying.
She recounted her moment of truth, saying, “When I went to the doctor’s I was classed as – it’s really embarrassing, this – obese.”
Continuing, she said, “They had to test me for diabetes, so that was pretty scary. They told us that if I didn’t start to eat healthy and look after myself that basically I was on the route to getting type 2 diabetes.”
She went on to say, “As soon as it was [about] health, I was like, no, I’ll get healthier.”
She also confessed that the diet has been a struggle and that she has an indulgence. She said, “Doner kebab meat. Truthfully, I have it maybe once or twice a week.” She went on to say, “But with garlic mayo and stuff it’s probably a week’s worth of calories.”
Sadly, that’s not much of an exaggeration. The Guardian reported on an analysis of the traditional Turkish fare, revealing a serving can contain as many as 1,900 calories and a shocking 70 grams of fat.
The UK Sun reports that previously she was a six six and that when she embarked upon her weight loss quest she was a size 16. As she continues to chronicle her progress she’s also landed a deal to release a fitness DVD due out at Christmas time.
She said of her workout routine, “‘I’ve just started exercising quite a bit actually. I’d say I do HIT [High Intensity Training] about three times a week.”
She revealed that her boyfriend, Luke Crodden, is “super-fit so it’s good having him on side because he’s quite motivated. I’ve got no excuse now!’ Fans who follow her know he frequently makes an appearance in her photos and of late there have been engagement rumors, but she’s neither confirmed nor denied.
And in the meantime, her fitness and weight loss journey continues. Not surprisingly, sadly, she’s had to face social media trolls. In particular, when she posted a recent photo revealing her cleavage in a low cut dress, she got some vicious comments. She pushed back strongly, saying in part, “There’s enough s*** going on in the world, let’s build each other up instead of being negative!!”
