British pop star Geri Halliwell, who once went by the moniker "Ginger Spice," has said "goodbye" to sugar—because she can't have it in moderate amounts. ''I do try to abstain from sugar. That's my thing," she says. "'I'm addicted to it…If I have one little bit, it's a trigger." The red-headed member of 90's pop group The Spice Girls has abstained from booze as well—in order to look and feel younger, and also to be a better mum to her six-year-old daughter. ''Alcohol is full of sugar. Besides, if I'm going to find the balance of being a mum and having a social life, I just can't put a hangover in there.''
