How did you change your eating habits?
Five small meals a day worked for me! I started by taking some pills to suppress appetite and vitamin C. Then, I slowly cut the alcohol, sugar, fried foods and carbohydrates. I did it constantly for three months. It's hard to keep five small meals a day, but if you prepare your meals, it's easier.
I started eating only chicken, fish and shrimp. My only sides were broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower. If I ate beef, it was limited. Once I entered this routine, I began adding other vegetables with my meats. My breakfast consisted of whole grain cereal and 1% milk, smoothies and vegetables.

What advice do you have for women who want to lose weight?
For anyone who wants to lose weight, I would say they need to be mentally and emotionally prepared to put aside their excuses and focus on realistic goals.
- Write your goals and set realistic deadlines.
- Do not weigh yourself every day. Do it every two weeks.
- Do not let your scale determine your success. It's more about how your clothes that you couldn't adjust before are now starting to fit.
- Set a goal for the number of pounds you want to lose.
