Former X-factor winner Leona Lewis claims she has had such a battle to lose weight that she must have tried almost every diet available. However at the age of 27 she now says that she has accepted her natural body shape and is happy as she is.
She admits that is her efforts to slim down she has caused concern for her family members, in particular her mother. Looking back at old pictures she can now see that she went too far in her pursuits of the perfect figure.
In an image obsessed career it was very difficult for the pop star to adapt. She found it particularly difficult in the US however she says that attitudes are beginning to change in places such as LA where super skinny is being replaced with super healthy.
