London: Singer Kelly Osbourne has admitted she tried many different diet regimes and almost starved in a bid to lose weight.

The 26-year-old, who lost over 50 pounds (about 22.60 kg)in 18 months, tried every possible way to lose weigh before settling on her current healthy eating and exercise plan, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"I have done everything - meal deliveries, milkshakes, diet pills, the juice diet, the maple syrup diet, even not eating at all. I would do it for three days and if I didn`t feel a drastic change, I`d be like, `I`m not doing that anymore`," she said.

"I am in therapy - it`s helped me in all areas of my life. There`s a huge mental factor in losing weight. It`s not just about getting on the treadmill. It`s about doing things to make you feel good about yourself," she added.

Though she is much happier with her figure, Osbourne admits she still sees a therapist for her mental strength and self-image.
