Sharon Osbourne is down 25 pounds since going on the Atkins diet.
However, she admitted in a recent interview that she is a compulsive eater.
"I am a food addict," she told Entertainment Tonight. "We all have our own little addictions that we do not in moderation but too much, and mine is food."
A few years ago Osbourne, 61, had weight loss surgery, which made her feel like "such a cheat." Now a paid spokeswoman by Atkins, Osbourne is proud of the way she's slimming down.
"I'd be fibbing if I said I don't cheat because I do cheat. I cheat a lot on my diet. We all do," she said. "But I don't guilt myself out because the next day I'll start with my Atkins breakfast sandwich and I'm right back on it."
