Gemma Collins discusses her size and says she doesn’t know why she is ‘overweight’ as she only eats twice a day and rarely before 2pm

TOWIE star Gemma Collins revealed she doesn’t know why she is “overweight” as she does not eat a lot of food in a typical day.

The 38 year old star said that her size confuses her as she rarely eats before 2pm, doesn't snack and barely drinks alcohol.

Gemma told The Sun Online: "I actually don't know why I am overweight because I don't eat a lot.

"My downfall is that I eat late of a night. I can go all day without food. I normally get hungry at two o’clock in the afternoon.

"I am a night owl. Basically I will just start eating from two o'clock in the afternoon. I have never been a breakfast girl."

The Diva Forever star added: "I don’t really drink, if I do I like a nice drop. I do like the odd Malibu and pineapple."

Gemma lost an impressive three stone as part of her training for Dancing on Ice and she has revealed that her attitude towards food is different now.

She said: “My portion sizes are a lot smaller now. I think before I used food as a bit of a crutch but my mindset is different now – I am a lot stronger.”

“I make better choices but I don’t overdo it. If I have a bread roll I have one not three.”

Gemma has gained some weight recently – she revealed – but the bubbly star is as confident as ever when it comes to her body.

She told the publication: “I am not obsessed with being thin. I really do love myself as I am. I don’t have body issues or hang ups.

“People would pay thousands to have a butt like mine. I have got the perfect butt. It's the best in the world. It is up and it’s big.”

Just days ago, the on-off girlfriend of James Argent shared an inspirational message about body positivity.

Gemma shared incredible throwback photos of herself when she was a teenager on Instagram.

Gemma wrote in the caption: "Woah looking at old photos", before she later shared the same snaps on her grid.

The pictures show Gemma as a teenager on a boat wearing a green tartan-patterned one piece swimsuit, while smiling confidently at the camera with sunglasses on.

Gemma explained she was “spending the evening looking at old pics” and gave her fans an important lesson in body positivity.

She explained in the caption: “I never grew up body conscious it wasn’t a thing when I was younger I was just young free and me”. She added she “looks good but in an innocent way” and explained how back then she was a “happy teenager with no body hang ups or pressure”.

She wrote: "Instagram is way too exposed now for young members who are on here,” she said.

“They do have pressure and it’s just so nice to look back on this picture and not have had any of that pressure growing up.”

She added: “I think it’s so important for our younger generation to be body confident and free”.

Gemma then took a swipe at the “way people expose themselves on the gram” adding: “Nothing is held back anymore everything on show is way too much”.
