When Basketball Wives star Tami Roman quit smoking, she started gaining weight. One day, when she finally stepped on the scale, she was surprised to see the number shoot to 185. That's when the 5'9" star decided something had to change.
"I'm big on research," the 41-year-old Roman says. "I decided I had to make a change, so I researched and researched until I found a product I liked, which is how I settled on NV Clinical."
One of the core ingredients of NV is mangosteen, which Roman says she liked because it contains antioxidants. But as a self-proclaimed foodie, she didn't want to make any dramatic changes to her lifestyle.
"I love food!" she says. "I didn't want to lose that part of me, that part that makes Tami, Tami. I needed to find a way to infuse that with a healthier lifestyle."
So, she started small.
"I lost seven pounds in the first week of taking NV without making any major changes to my life," Roman says. "But in the second week, I thought to myself, Tami what would happen if you added a little light exercise to your routine? So I started at 10 minutes of working out. That soon became 15 minutes, then 20, and then it became 30."
Now, Roman's down six dress sizes, though she says she's still hoping to lose a few more pounds.
"I went to the Do Something awards this year, and it was the greatest feeling in the world to wear a size 6!" the star says.
Roman says she's hoping to inspire people to take charge of their health.
"We're seeing people in their 30s dropping dead of heart attacks," she says. "People really need to make a conscious decision. It won't be instant. It takes you time to gain the weight; it'll take time to lose it."
In the Jan. 9th issue of OK! magazine, Tami shared more about her weight-loss progress. Here's what she had to say:
OK: You look fabulous. What’s your secret?
Tami Roman (TR): NV Clinical! I use the supplements daily and I’m very happy with my weight loss! I also started working out with a trainer.
OK: Have you tried NV Clinical Sprinkles?
I use the Sprinkles on pretty much everything I eat. Especially when I cheat and eat a high-calorie meal, Sprinkles helps to suppress my appetite and keeps me from eating the entire meal.
OK: Can you eat whatever you want?
TR: I’m trying to switch my thought process on meals, including more salads, high protein and less carbs and limited snacking on junk food. I don’t deprive myself of the foods I love, but they are more a treat than the norm.
OK: How did you lose the weight?
TR: NV Clinical is the fastest weight-loss product I have tried—seven pounds in the first two weeks.
OK: What do you have planned for the future?
TR: I have been gearing up for the launch of my new scripted series Belle on TVONE. And my new business ventures include Perfect Face, a cosmetic line, and LOVE, a nail polish/lip gloss line. I am also working on a cookbook with a celebrity chef.
