Emily Atack reveals how she lost 1st and transformed her body with intermittent fasting and skipping breakfast

DETOX DIET

EMILY Atack has revealed the tricks behind her body transformation, which saw her lose a stone last year.

The 31-year-old credits intermittent fasting and skipping breakfast to keeping at her ideal weight.

In an interview with Women's Health, Emily looked glowing in a pink blazer with her blonde hair crimped.

She told the magazine: "I do intermittent fasting. I don't have breakfast – I'm not a morning person – and I'll eat my first meal, usually a chicken salad, around midday. 

"Mid-afternoon, I'll have a snack, and then another meal early evening, which is normally a pasta-based dish or a HelloFresh delivery if I'm busy. 

"And if I want dark chocolate, popcorn or my favourite pad thai takeaway, I won't deny myself."

Despite following a healthy diet and losing weight in lockdown, the Celebrity Juice captain said she was the happiest she's ever been at 11st and had learnt to embrace her curves.

She told Closer: "I've realised that I'm probably the biggest I've ever been. I weigh 11st.

"I've never weighed 11st, but I'm doing everything I've always wanted to do.

"My life is the best it's ever been, and I get more compliments now than I ever have before.

"I look back at photographs of when I was slimmer, looking a bit gaunt, and I was definitely unhappier."

The actress, who found fame as Charlotte Hinchcliffe in The Inbetweeners, credited her time in the famous ITV jungle for her new attitude.

She explained: "I'm way more accepting of my body now."
