"Breast feeding is a major contributor but also, I did not drink anything but water, no juice, no soda, nothing for the first month and a half," she said during a recent visit. "And no sweets because I’m a sweet eater, I love sweets; I can eat dessert after every meal. So I didn’t eat any sweets."

It was a struggle that paid off, Kandi said.

"It was extremely hard," she said. "But .. doing that with breast feeding it just made the weight come off. And I’m actually smaller now than I was before I got pregnant.”

"Dr. Oz" airs at 3 p.m. weekdays on WSB/Channel 2 right before Channel 2 Action News at 4 p.m.
