A spoonful of nutrition helps your BMI go down!
Mathilde Broberg, 21, from Aarhus, Denmark, once tipped the scale at 266 pounds and had a body mass index that pushed her into the morbidly obese category.
The svelte Danish stunner now models and works as a physical trainer after she shed her extra weight by cutting out junk and measuring her portions with a teaspoon.
“Before, I would buy all the things you dream of like chips, chocolate, cake, noodles and lots of junk food between meals,” Broberg told Caters, adding that she was an overeater until the age of 16.
Broberg — who at one point consumed an alarming 3,500 calories per day — recalls being kicked off roller-coaster as a child because she was too heavy to ride.
She finally decided to change her eating habits, a teaspoon at a time, after spotting an unflattering photo of herself in a school play.
“After seeing a picture from our school production, I realized how big and knew there was no way I could go to college looking how I did, I knew it would be a living nightmare,” Broberg told Caters.
After dropping an astonishing 126 pounds, Broberg was faced with a new challenge — her sagging skin.
Thankfully, she got help from the Danish government to have a $7,000 tummy tuck.
“Before the surgery, I felt trapped inside a body that wasn’t really mine, now that my excess skin is gone I feel like I’ve transformed into the real me,” Broberg told Caters.
Broberg says one of her favorite parts of losing weight— other than being a super-hot sportswear and catalog model — is turning down boys who were once her biggest bullies.
“Out of nowhere I’ve suddenly became interesting to the boys. I’ve turned down a lot of people who have asked me out because if they can’t handle me at my biggest they don’t deserve me now,” Broberg told Caters.
