Janet Jackson risked getting diabetes in 2005
Washington, May 24 (ANI): Janet Jackson, who has struggled with her figure for years, has revealed that she came very close to becoming a diabetic, when she ballooned to her highest weight in 2005.
The 'Together Again' hitmaker has admitted that the extra pounds really took a toll on her body and increased her risk of developing several life-threatening diseases.
"Health was always a concern. When I gained weight in 2005, my nutritionist was very worried. I was close to having diabetes. Even when I lost it and then gained quite a bit back, there was always the thought of heart disease," Contactmusic quoted her as telling Prevention magazine.
But now the singer balances a healthy diet and a fun work-out routine to stay in shape.
"I don't like to work out, and I get bored easily. Tony Martinez (trainer) is great. When I'm getting ready for a tour, I'll work out with the dancers. He'll put us in teams and we'll do all sorts of drills and races," she said.
Now a slimline spokeswoman for NutriSystem, the diet company that helped her get her perfect figure, the pop superstar tells the publication she hopes her battle with the bulge will help others.
"I think people really connect with the idea of someone who's gained and lost weight in a very public way, and also someone who's an emotional eater," she added. (ANI)
