Britney Spears' ex-husband had an unhealthy diet

Kevin Federline has revealed that he used to down 24 cans of fizzy drink a day.

The former dancer ballooned to over 16st after he turned to junk food to comfort himself through his divorce from Britney Spears in 2006.

I drank 12 to 24 cans of soda a day – not Diet,’ says Kevin, 32.

I didn’t drink water, that was all I drank. That was my coffee, that was my candy, that was my everything.’

Kevin has since appeared on reality show Celebrity Fit Club: Boot Camp to turn his life around and now realises he was going through depression.

I hit 30-years-old, I stopped dancing, started eating and sitting on the couch playing with the kids here and there,’ he tells US chat show host Bonnie Hunt.

I got lazier and lazier, and fatter and fatter.’
