Girls Aloud band member Sarah Harding has admitted that she eats charcoal to stay fit.
Harding said that apart from curing hangovers, the softest form of carbon keeps her healthy and helps getting her curves back, reports The Daily Star.
It is reported that she sprinkles coal crumbs over her food.
“I found out about it on a fashion website. It has a strange texture, but it doesn’t taste of anything and apparently absorbs all the bad, damaging stuff in the body. It’s not the regular charcoal you put in fires, though – I’m not that mad! I get it from the health food shop and I think it’s good for hangovers, too,” says Harding.
