Next to a selfie showing Nadia getting her teeth stuck into a cheese and onion pasty, she wrote: "I spent years dieting my way to obesity. Cutting out whole food groups. No carbs, no sugar, no alcohol, no eating, no fat!! It got me nowhere." 

"I will never diet again. Mostly (I can still have my down days) I eat without guilt or self-loathing. This doesn’t mean that I would eat a pasty every day! Occasionally works for me, because I actually love to eat healthy home-cooked food most of the time!"
