Ahead of running the London Marathon last year, the brunette beauty told The Sun about her new-found body confidence .
She said: “I have learnt how to eat and how to be comfortable with who I am … You get wiser as you get older and I just feel much more confident and comfortable.”
Mother-of-two Natalie has previously revealed she ran 18-miles in one day in preparation for the lengthy challenge.
As well as following her training regime and regular exercise, the soap star also made some changes to her diet. She previously admitted that “cheese, crisps and dips were her downfall”, but by cutting out this “rubbish”, she managed to stay in shape.
An inside source close to the star previously revealed to Now magazine that Nataline had “sworn off take outs” to maintain her lithe physique.
Another pal of the her told Closer: “Nat says she has made a pact with herself to stay fit this time. It’s not a diet or anything drastic – she knows that’s the way to fall off the wagon. She feels amazing.”
Natalie has openly discussed her struggled with her weight and in 2007 she discussed how she took laxatives as a means to losing the pounds as she tried to stay slim after whipping herself into shape for fitness DVD Natalie Cassidy’s Then and Now Workout.
The star told Heat Magazine: “I really wasn’t well. I was bordering on having an eating disorder.
“There were nights I would go out for dinner and then I’d go home and take laxatives because I didn’t want the food inside me.”
