London: Singer Nicole Scherzinger says her weight often fluctuates and that she has now come to terms with her natural body shape.
"I`ve grown as a woman to just accept myself. You`re not going to feel great all the time - so you`ve just not got to be hard on yourself," she told Glamour magazine.
"Right now I`ve probably gained a few pounds, but it`s OK because at the right time I`ll lose a couple of pounds. When I put my mind to it, I hit the gym," she added.
The former Pussycat Dolls star, who is dating F1 star Lewis Hamilton, calls herself a "lean, mean, killing machine", reports contactmusic.com.
"My physique definitely takes work. But I fluctuate. Sometimes I`m in superhero mode and I`m all buff and lean, mean killing machine - but sometimes I let myself relax a little. At the moment I`m a little bit more relaxed," she said.
"I love rice and pasta and chicken, fish and veggies. I`ll always eat carbs - I don`t believe in taking those away. Everything in moderation. I don`t eat a lot of fried foods, naturally," she added.
