‘Get the 27-inch jeans!’ Cheryl advises those who have gained weight during lockdown to buy bigger clothes if they’re happy in their bodies

Cheryl has delved into her views on all things health related as she begins her new role as a supplement ambassador.

The former Girls Aloud star, has advised those who have gained weight during lockdown to buy bigger clothes if they’re happy in their larger bodies, rather than yo-yo dieting or adopting bad eating habits.

Speaking to Marie Claire, Cheryl revealed that she had spoken to her sister-in-law on the topic of buying jeans a size up, and told her: ‘Are you happier like this? Does anything else matter? Get the size 27 [inch waist] – no one cares.’

Asked what her advice would be for someone who is yo-yo dieting or who has bad eating habits, Cheryl insisted that people need to change their mindset around food.

The pop star suggested that people need to not think of themselves as ‘eating bad’ or ‘being good’, adding: ‘We can be very, very harsh on ourselves. And for what?’

Charly said: ‘Look at that shame and guilt. No, you didn’t have a good week, you just changed your lifestyle. I think that’s a really good thing – to shift your frame of mind from being so extreme and putting that pressure on yourself.

‘Just live your life. If you want spaghetti Carbonara, have the spaghetti Carbonara. Nobody cares. You might have a little muffin at the end of the week, but nobody cares.

‘I had this conversation with my sister-in-law last week. She keeps saying that her jeans don’t fit anymore. I said, “ok, get the bigger size.” Your wardrobe doesn’t fit – let’s accept that.

‘Get some new ones. Are you happier like this? Does anything else matter? Get the size 27 – no one cares.’  

Cheryl also spoke about her food habits, saying she only eats when she is hungry and allows herself a takeaway meal once every week or second week.

Speaking of her new business venture, Cheryl told City AM: ‘I’m obviously not a scientist but the knowledge and the cleanliness of the product blew my mind because I didn’t have any idea about how many bulking agents and nasties had been in [multivitamins].  

‘I love everything they stand for, I love their knowledge, I love their ambition. I’m 20 years into my career, I’m looking for new things that I feel inspired by.

‘I’m learning all the time and I’m interested. I want to be invested, I want to be in the developmental side, I want to be involved in the next packaging, that’s all stuff that excites me.’
