London: Nicole Scherzinger started counting calories when she was just 14 years old, and admits that her obsession affected her life.

“I started jogging and counting calories when I was just 14. I`ve been on every diet you can imagine. By the time I was in the Pussycat Dolls, I was on the scale all the time. It became my enemy because I noticed that when I exercised really hard, I`d gain weight,” quoted Scherzinger as saying.

“I`m more accepting of my body and have learned to really embrace it. These days it`s all about finding balance. My new motto is: `Stay active, eat everything in moderation, and stop being so tough on myself`,” she added.
