We’re guessing the ice cream diet didn’t work out that well.
[Laughs] It didn’t. I still wasn’t gaining weight, and I didn’t look healthier or feel good. I finally went to the gym and hired a personal trainer. We started a new training and nutrition program. I was eating six or seven times a day and lifting weights. I fell in love with it. That was three years ago.

What sort of guys do you like?
Personality is huge, of course, but an understanding of this lifestyle important. Fitness competition is so all-encompassing it affects your whole family. So he needs to know that. Big shoulders are good, too! So they can hold me tight.

Do you pretty much have your pick of any guy you want?
Pretty much. [Laughs] I’m not trying to come across as cocky or anything. That’s just the way it’s always been.
