Tamara Ecclestone, who openly admitted this week that she's gained "a few pounds" since splitting from fiance Omar Khyami over the summer, was spotted stocking up on healthy food on her trip in New York.

On Tuesday the Formula 1 heiress was seen shopping in the Big Apple's Whole Foods alongside her male pal Scott Nicholls, the Daily Mail reported.

And clearly intending to keep her body in check Ecclestone carried boxes of fruit and nuts, as she overhauls her diet.

The socialite was seen looking smart casual in a beige jumper and tweed skirt, while she wore her long brunette locks down and covered her eyes with sunglasses.

The 28-year-old admits she gained weight following her split, but insists the extra pounds don't bother her as she is "happier" with her new size.

"I do feel like I've put on a few pounds but I feel fine about it," she told New! magazine.

"I'm so much happier and content. I feel better with these few pounds on me," she said. (ANI)
