(Radio.com) Former Spice Girl Melanie Chisholm, (a.k.a. Mel C, 'Sporty Spice" ) has revealed that she struggled with an eating disorder and was bullied by her band mates when she was in the group.

"I joined the Spice Girls when I was 20 and it was an insane time," Mel C wrote in an article for BBC Good Food. "I developed an eating disorder; I was in the spotlight, being photographed constantly, and I started to become self-conscious of my body image. I was in denial for a long time but I always wanted to get better--I had talking therapies and holistic therapies, like acupuncture. Sport became really important to me, too."

She added, 'I love to be physically fit and, obviously, to really push yourself, you have to make sure you eat the right things. I like to think I have a healthy relationship with food now, and I love to cook. We're so much more aware of nutrition nowadays. When I was a teenager, I didn't know the difference between a protein and a carb. We need to get back to realizing that we are what we eat." Read more here.
