She complained earlier this year that she was a severe yo-yo dieter, unable to stick to an eating plan which worked for her.
But it seems TOWIE star Cara Kilbey has finally found a diet to suit her lifestyle, as the reality TV star proved by showing off her lithe figure on holiday in Marbella.
Cara wore a sexy patterned two-piece as she soaked up the sunshine poolside, alternating her sunbathing with dips in the pool.

The stunning brunette left her long
hair loose around her shoulders, and went relatively low-key with her
make-up giving her a naturally glowing complexion.
Cara had written on her Twitter page in March that she was struggling to stick to a diet regime.
She tweeted: 'Every Monday I start another diet… So here goes… Up at 7 for a Run and back on The Dukan Diet.'
She later added: 'OMG im so hungry. I HATE DIETS.'

But it seems the combination of
sticking to a healthy eating plan, combined with running the 26-mile
London Marathon last month was just what Cara needed to help inspire her
to tone up.
And now the 24-year-old is reaping the benefits of completing such a physically challenging race, looking more toned and in shape than ever.
Cara was on holiday in Marbella with best friend Billi Mucklow, with whom she ran the marathon, and boyfriend Tom Pearce.

However, since being back in the UK, things have been pretty dramatic for Cara, who was seen on last night's episode of TOWIE getting into a fight with Jessica Wright.
Things kicked off when Billi and Cara called Jessica 'desperate' at Mick Norcross' Vegas-themed birthday party, after Jessica began dating Ricky Rayment shortly after he split from Cara.
However, following the episode, Cara wrote on her Twitter page somewhat cryptically: 'Just watched last nights show. We stand our ground & the truth always comes out in the end,as you will see.Don't start what you can't finish!'
