My childhood was not easy. I was a congregation of the state of Illinois until I was adopted at the age of 11. Before that I lived everywhere, from nursing homes to abandoned caravans. Some days my only meals were bowls of rice. Even after my adoptive mother Betsy took me in, things were tough. I felt uncomfortable in public school, and I pretended to be too ill to go to class.

After that, I ate and exercised well, and within four months I lost 140 pounds.
Today I try to eat high-protein meals and snacks: I cook breakfast every morning (usually two eggs and a piece of cheese), and for lunch and dinner I have super-lean chicken or bison meat. I always liked vegetables, but I did not eat them often. Now I have them for lunch and dinner – mostly broccoli, spinach or cauliflower. I also go to the gym every day.
