Sir Paul McCartney's ex-wife Heather Mills drastically overhauled her diet after suffering a hernia in a weight-lifting accident. The former model, who is now pursuing a career as a competitive skier, hurt herself during training and suffered complications including acid reflux and bowel problems, prompting her to alter her eating habits.
She tells Mythrivemag.com, "I probably eat the best I have in twenty-five years. Being a vegan, I have always eaten pretty well, but since getting a hiatus hernia from dead-lifting 125 kilos, I have to eat non-acid-causing foods. Due to the hernia, I have secret acid reflux and a lower esophageal sphincter that no longer works."
Mills goes on to reveal her diet now includes pea and hemp protein shakes for breakfast, and vegan seed-based homemade crumble pizzas.
Sir Paul McCartney's ex-wife Heather Mills broke her prosthetic leg while appearing on British snow sport show The Jump. The former model, who lost her left leg below the knee in a 1993 motorcycle accident, shattered the artificial limb while training for the programme on Saturday (31Jan15).
The prosthesis was one of only four bespoke ski jumping limbs in the world and Mills had to have a replacement flown in to Austria, where the show is filmed.
A source tells Britain's The Sun newspaper, "She'd have been devastated if she hadn't been able to join in."
The Jump is aired on U.K. network Channel 4.

The former JLS star was rushed to the medical tent to be treated by doctors after suffering a nasty fall while practising for the British show on the ski slopes in Innsbruck, Austria.
A source tells Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper, "JB really hurt his shoulder and was in a lot of pain. It was pretty worrying but the doc (doctor) said he can carry on."
The publication reports that two reality stars have suffered injuries during training and two other contestants have withdrawn from the competition, which airs in the U.K. on Sunday (01Feb15).
Former Pussycat Dolls star Ashley Roberts, Jackass funnyman Steve-O and Sir Paul McCartney's ex-wife Heather Mills are among the celebrities taking part.
Sir Paul McCartney's ex-wife Heather Mills is convinced she instigated the downfall of her arch nemesis Max Clifford after persuading two alleged abuse victims to go to the police. The celebrity publicist clashed with Mills during her bitter 2008 divorce from the Beatles legend when he spoke out against her and accused her of making a mistake by publicly attacking McCartney's character.
Clifford was jailed in April last year (14) after he was found guilty of eight charges of indecent assault stemming from incidents dating back to the 1970s, and Mills has now revealed she had contact with two women who claimed to have been victims.
The former model reveals she told the women to go to the police, and Mills is convinced she was the starting point for the investigation into Clifford.
She tells Britain's Event magazine, "When I married Paul I got a call on my mobile phone from Max Clifford. I never gave him my number, no one did. But he was on the phone telling me I needed him to represent me. I told him no. He then told me he was going to make sure I was ruined. When anything happened, he would go on television and talk about me, saying a lot of negative things. At one point during the divorce, he went on television and blasted me.
"The same day I got two messages on my website, both from women, both independent of each other, telling me how sorry they felt for me and how much they hated him because he had abused them when they were teenagers.
"I put them in touch with Scotland Yard and that was the start of the inquiry into Max Clifford. In the end, karma comes around."
Sir Paul McCartney's ex-wife Heather Mills has described her divorce from The Beatles legend as a more traumatic experience than losing her leg in a motorcycle accident.
The British model-turning-professional skier was married to McCartney for four years before their acrimonious split in 2006 and they subsequently faced off against each other in a bitter and highly-publicized divorce trial. Mills walked away from the marriage with a $38.9 million settlement in 2008, and now seven years later, she admits she is still struggling to bounce back from the divorce drama.
She tells Britain's Event magazine, "It's very hard to be married to a Beatle. (McCartney's first wife) Linda had it tough, Yoko (Ono) had it tough and what happened to me after the divorce... losing my leg was easier to cope with... I felt I lost everything. I spent my whole life raising money for charities and I was asked to leave every charity because I became poison... Everything I had been was taken away."
Mills, who has an 11-year-old daughter named Beatrice with the star, admits the experience has put her off marriage for life.
She adds, "Never, never, never... I'm single, I want to have fun but I don't want to be married. It's one thing I'm absolutely sure about."
Mills lost her left leg below the knee in a motorcycle crash in 1993.
Former Pussycat Dolls star Ashley Roberts and Jackass stuntman Steve-O are among the celebrities lining up to take part in a winter sports-themed reality TV show in the U.K. They will be competing in the second series of Channel 4's winter sports competition The Jump, where they will be taking part in events such as ski jumping and speed skating.
Other stars competing to take the trophy from last series winner, British singer Joe McElderry, include Paul McCartney's ex-wife Heather Mills, JLS singer JB Gill, TV personality Joey Essex, and former rugby star Mike Tindall, who is married to British royal Zara Phillips.
The show, presented by Davina McCall, will air in the U.K early next year (15).
Sir Paul McCartney's ex-wife Heather Mills is poised to return to the spotlight by competing on a winter sport-themed reality TV show in the U.K. The former model, who lost a leg in a traffic accident in 1993, had to abandon her dreams to compete in the 2014 Winter Paralympic Games in Sochi, Russia following a dispute over her choice of prosthetic leg, but she will now get to show off her sporting skills by taking part in The Jump in early 2015.
Mills is reportedly finalising a deal with network executives at Channel 4 to test her talents in a slew of events, including ski jumping, speed skating and the giant slalom, according to Britain's The Sun newspaper.
A source tells the publication, "Bosses are still confirming the deal but she is expected to sign on the dotted line in the next few days before heading out to Austria to start practising. She loves a challenge and thinks The Jump is a great platform."
If she signs on, Mills will join contestants including former rugby star Mike Tindall, who is married to British royal Zara Phillips.
Mills and McCartney, who are parents to 11-year-old daughter Beatrice, divorced in 2008 after six years of marriage.
Guests at a celebrity gala in New York were left squirming in their seats when U.S. TV host Chelsea Handler told a shocking joke about Sir Paul McCartney's ex-wife in front of the Beatles star and his new bride.
McCartney attended the Lincoln Center in Manhattan on Thursday (13Nov14) with his wife Nancy Shevell for a tribute event in honor of his fashion designer daughter Stella. However, the evening got off to an embarrassing start when Handler, who was opening the gala, made a potentially offensive gag about the musician's former wife Heather Mills, who lost a leg in a road accident.
Editors at New York Post gossip column Page Six report Handler told the audience, "I would say break a leg, but I don't want to insult Heather Mills."
Paying tribute to Stella McCartney, she also joked, "(Her) collections have always spoken to me, probably because we come from such similar backgrounds. Her father is one of the greatest musicians of all time, who influenced generations, and my father spent a night in prison for shoplifting an eight-track of Yellow Submarine."
The Beatles star appeared unfazed by the racy remarks - he presented his daughter with a special tribute award and later told Page Six, "I'm more proud than you could ever imagine. A trillion, a trillion times proud, times a trillion. You know, to me she was once just a tiny little baby, and I'm here now in New York, and she's a celebrated lady who does so much for women, the planet, children and me."
Other guests at the dinner included Liv Tyler, Woody Harrelson, and model/actress Kate Upton, as well as John Lennon's widow Yoko Ono, who greeted McCartney and his wife with a hug and a kiss. The event also raised money for the Lincoln Center Corporate Fund.
British model-turned-reality TV star Katie Price has hired the top female lawyer behind Sir Paul McCartney's 2008 divorce from Heather Mills.
