Big Brother’s Christina Podolyan has revealed her body transformation after losing 20 kilograms.

‘I was in denial that I was indulging to numb the pain,’ Christina said of her weight gain while talking to the publication.
‘By the time I was 17, I was 20 kilograms heavier. That’s when I really knew I had one too many doughnuts,’ she added.
Christina admitted she was ‘uneducated’ about proper health protocol with her using Google to find fad diets – including the watermelon-only diet.
‘Being 17, I was very uneducated and used Google to find the first food diet out there. I even tried a watermelon-only diet for seven days,’ she said.

Christina, however, found the only lasting way to keep the weight off was by using a calorie-deficient diet and exercise.
‘I learnt the best way for myself to lose weight is being in a calorie-deficient diet, which I combined with resistance training four days a week.’
Christina made waves on Big Brother. She recently revealed she split from her co-star Brenton Balicki.

Speaking to 7News.com.au last month, the brunette flight attendant confirmed the romance had run its course.
‘Brenton and I are no longer together,’ Christina told the website.
The Russian bombshell said the pair still message ‘every day’ but their relationship has turned into a friendship.

‘We are really good friends now, we message every day, and it has become a nice friendship, but once we left the house, it had kind of run its course,’ she explained.
The pair only recently shared their first kiss in the house, after flirting-up a storm from the moment they laid eyes on each other.
Speaking to Daily Mail Australia previously, Christina said the pair had spent time together after filming the show.
‘We hung out in Sydney a few weekends ago and got to spend some time together for the first time away from cameras,’ she said.
