Frankie Essex says cutting ketchup out of her diet has helped her to lose up to two stone
Frankie Essex claims ditching ketchup helped her lose weight.
The former 'The Only Way is Essex' star has lost two stone in recent years and credited cutting out sauces with her success.
She told The Sun Online: "You have to eat clean - food without sauces. If you are going to have chicken and potatoes then don't have like a creamy mushrooms sauce.
"Have the mushrooms but try and stay away from all the sauces.
"I used to love sauces, especially ketchup but I don't have it any more. It's full of sugar."
And she insisted that she always tries to go to bed hungry.
She said: "If you go gym have protein.
"If you're hungry at night time - you should go to bed hungry - but if you can't you should have a protein shake.
"You should always go to bed hungry really, then you wake up and have breakfast."
The blonde beauty previously revealed she found herself falling into a downward spiral after she piled on the pounds - ballooning to her biggest - and ending her toxic relationship with her boyfriend John Lyons in 2015.
She said: "I'd lost all my confidence. I had a really sh** year, probably the worst year I've ever had, and I was really down. I lived with my boyfriend John and I had to move out."
