“My diet is pretty good,” she said. “It consists of lean meats, fruits, vegetables, and grains. There is never really a need to cheat, but I will enjoy something small like a vegetable pizza or burger. I don’t mind a cheat meal, but never a cheat day.”
She said it takes time to get into shape and even more effort to stay there. Be patient.
“My advice to others is to do what works for you and trust the process,” she said.
