After recently suffering from a heart attack, Rosie O'Donnell has turned over a new, healthy leaf. She has changed her diet, a change she admits was necessary to improve her health.
"I abused sugar the way a drug addict would," she admitted. "Those foods almost killed me."
Now, O'Donnell is making an effort to put her health first by changing her diet. She has since lost 12 pounds.
"I tossed out all my junk food, especially anything with sugar. For once it wasn't difficult for me to live without sweets," she said. "I took a heart attack for me to learn to take care of myself."
