Although the Black Eye Peas singer performs punishing dance routines during her concerts she revealed she is so fanatical about keeping fit that she brings an exercise expert with her to ensure she stays in shape and even asks her dancers for tips.

Fergie’s obsession with exercise is not surprising as she has previously admitted she struggled to lose the 17lbs she gained for her role in the movie ‘Nine’ after filming finished.
She said: “I was eating my brains out. I ordered everything fried, full of fat and salty.

The Victoria’s Secret model – who gave birth to Flynn, her first child with husband Orlando Bloom, in January – explained in addition to sticking to an eating plan specially devised for blood type A, she also supplements her diet to ensure her body receives maximum nutrition.
She said: “I am a blood type A and more often than not I eat specifically for my blood type. I also eat low GI, high alkaline foods, drink filtered water and eat mostly fresh produce and very little meat.
“I believe it is important to supplement our food to ensure our bodies have the nutrition required to remain healthy. This is even more important if you do not eat certified organic foods and certified organic fresh produce.”
The 27-year-old beauty also revealed coconut oil is her secret key to great skin and shiny hair, and she ensures she supplements her meals with four tablespoons of the natural fat each day.
