Singer Paloma Faith embarked on a drastic diet last year (12) after growing tired of seeing "bad" paparazzi photographs of herself.
The pop star cut out all red meat, dairy and wheat and took up running as part of the health kick.
Faith reveals she ate mainly "porridge, bananas and juice" and she is proud of her new slim figure.
She tells Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper, "I looked at paparazzi shots that were caught at bad angles, and got fed up with it. I wanted to reduce the amount of bad angles that were possible because people were having a field day with me.
"I feel strangely disappointed but my life has got better since I lost the weight. People have been nicer to me - press, people that I meet, Twitter. People actually fancy me now! Still no one hits on me but a lot more say I'm hot on Twitter now... I like it."
