Loose Women star Nadia Sawalha has opened up about her own fitness DVD in the wake of celebrity work out DVDs coming under fire after reports Scarlett Moffatt ‘mislead’ fans over her workout regime.

Nadia, 53, wanted to give her take on the DVDs as she made her own workout DVD in 2010 called From Fat to Fab and managed to lose three and a half stone and she wanted to put the record straight to fans on social media.

In a video blog uploaded to her profile, Nadia explained, “So in 2010 I did a fitness DVD ‘From Fat to Fab’. I did it with a great company, Universal Pictures, who did not force me to go to a fat camp, who did not force me to take slimming pills, like some others do. I did it the right way. I went on a diet.”

The Truth About My Fitness DVD!

The press have been calling and asking me for the truth about my fitness DVD . I've refused to talk to them. Why? Because I wanted you guys to have the truth exclusively from me.Love to know your thoughts.

Posted by Nadia and Kaye on Monday, March 19, 2018

But as with any diet, the process is not easy and for Nadia, like some of the younger celebrities who have released fitness DVDs, she wasn’t happy doing it.

She said, “So it was a healthy diet, but no alcohol, no sugar, very little carbs, I was miserable, I was actually miserable when I was doing it. A lot of my family and friends said I completely changed my personality. I think that was because I just had to be so focused on not eating and working out really hard. On the day that I filmed the DVD I had to stand on scales in front of everybody. I was crying in the toilets because I thought “I’m going to be so fat, I’m going to be so fat. I’m not going to be the right weight.” I was the right weight, I was nine stone six is what my contract has asked me to be and then I went in the toilets and cried again because even though I’d seen that number I couldn’t believe I was slim enough to jump around in front of the camera.

Nadia continued: “Don’t get me wrong, it was the incredible feeling putting those size 8-10 jeans. It was extraordinary, but guess what? It wasn’t the holy grail I’d imagined it to be. I’d always thought that once I was a size 10 my whole life was going to be perfect. It was not. I was unable to do all the things I love! I was unable to just hang out with my friends sometimes and order a curry. I couldn’t go down the pub and maybe have two gin and tonics and half a bottle of wine.

She admitted that whilst on the diet and fitness regime she couldn’t do those things that sometimes “you just want to do” and continued, “I would have had to have been focussed and obsessed with everything I ate and how many times I went to the gym for the rest of my life to stay a size 10. There’s been a lot apparently in the papers today, I haven’t looked but my friends have told me, saying that I’m fatter than I was and you know a bit of body shaming going on but I am, I am bigger than I was, but I’m really happy with it.’

Nadia revealed she’s a size 12 to 14 and added, “Yeah I could lose a few pounds, but I’m not going to get heart disease or diabetes from being fat which I could have done so I’m now a healthy weight and for me it’s all about being healthy and not about my dress size. I’m really happy with the way that I look and I’m really happy I did my DVD because it taught me being a size 10 isn’t everything.”

Emily in Paris Fans Think Kim Cattrall Will Make an Appearance in Season 3

Published

on

instyle– Fans are speculating a major pop-culture crossover in season 3 of Emily in Paris. After Kim Cattrall infamously turned down the chance to revive her Sex and the City character, Samantha Jones, for the rebootfans couldn’t help but wonder if Jones could make an appearance in the next season of the cult-favorite Netflix show.

If you’re watching And Just Like That … (and even if you’re not), you know that Cattrall’s character is supposedly off working her public relationships magic in London, England, just a quick trip from Emily (Lily Collins) and her booming marketing firm, Savoir.

Fans noticed major parallels between the characters, from their location to their sex positivity to their career in communications. Plus, both series were created by big-time Hollywood producer Darren Star — with SATC costume designer Patricia Field now responsible for Emily’s kitschy, Parisian looks — making a collab that much more believable.

One Twitter user wrote, “Current theory: Samantha has supposedly moved overseas, hence her lack of presence in the new SATC TV series. Then she shows up by total surprise in a crossover episode of EMILY IN PARIS. I would watch Samantha try to tolerate Emily, 100 percent.”

Collins fueled the flames by teasing a possible season 3. The actress posted photographs from her Vogue Hong Kong cover featuring a jet-black shag haircut and dark makeup writing, “Season 3 pivot?? Who’s with me? …” Collins used the same caption when reposting a fan’s Tweet with the magazine images that read, “Emily in Berlin.”

Women Who Work Outside Road-Tested the Season’s Cutest Winter Coats

Published

on

If you’re in the market for a new winter coat, there’s no shortage of options out there. Fuzzy, puffy, water resistant, bright — whatever you want, a quick Google search will surely lead you to something that promises to be top-notch. But will it actually be warm and stand up to the elements? Ehh…that’s not always a guarantee. Some coats photograph well but turn out to be flimsier, breezier, or less precipitation-proof than they look.

This season, though, InStyle.com decided to take some of that risk out of the equation. We wanted honest coat reviews — ones that told us something that wasn’t in the product description. So, we recruited the help of five ‘cold professionals,’ AKA women who work outside as part of their job. We gave them one of the coats we’d been coveting, had them walk around in it for about an hour (while we snapped photos, of course), and then asked them questions to determine its overall rating, which accounts for warmth but also coolness.

Thankfully, this crew didn’t hold back and shared some solid advice for those wondering what jacket is really worth their money this winter.

Published

Of the many fashion and beauty lines that members of the Kardashian/Jenner clan have launched over the past few years, Kim Kardashian West’s Skims is undoubtedly one of the family’s biggest hits. Since its debut in 2019, the shapewear and loungewear brand has won rave reviews (and earned a whole lot of money) for its comfortable styles and inclusive sizing, and so it’s no wonder that its products often sell out super quickly. If you’ve been dying to try some items out for yourself but haven’t gotten the chance just yet, we’ve got good news: Skims Cotton Rib Thermal Leggings are available at Nordstrom in so many colors and size options right now.

For anyone not familiar with thermal leggings, they’re the best during winter (or any day when the AC is on too high, if we’re being real). They’re designed to retain your body heat and keep you warm, and the best ones do so while still being light enough to allow your skin to breathe. Skims’ thermal leggings are made with ribbed stretch cotton that hugs close to the body, yet doesn’t feel suffocating.
