Leann Rimes is ''glad to have a little more meat on'' her now.

The star was pictured looking incredibly thin in 2011, but has since overcome issues with anxiety and stress - which she went to rehab for earlier this year - and is feeling much healthier.

She told Closer magazine: ''I look back at those photos and think, 'Wow, maybe I was a little thin,' but at the time I didn't think anything about it. I'm glad to have a little more meat on me now.''

Speaking about her stint in rehab, she added: ''That was just the way my body was handling the stress. Some people stress-eat and I do the complete opposite. So I chose to take time out in rehab and focus on me.''

LeAnn - who is married to actor Eddie Cibrian - eats healthily, but also never deprives herself of her favourite foods.

She added: ''I love tucking into fish and chips, shepherd's pie and Wagamamas. I try to eat healthily, but I love food too much to give up on anything. Working out helps me to focus and I love to box.''
