Ms. Namita Nayyar: Do you take some special diet or have a strict menu that you follow to remain healthy and physically fit?
Ms. Paige Railey: When I was initially gaining weight yes…lots of protein and all the time! I eat to fuel my body and to help gain/maintain weight. I don’t care about junk, carbs etc…I am all about getting in the proper energy, vitamins, minerals and fats to help keep my body performing correctly. When you fuel your body properly you will notice that it looks better too.
