Lisa's a perfect 10 after giving booze the boot

TV3 star Lisa Cannon has dropped a dress size to a perfect 10 since Christmas -- after ditching the booze.

Lisa has struggled with her weight for the past 12 months and says that she's never been happier now that she's back to a size 10 after losing a stone.

"I decided at Christmas time that it was time to do something drastic as I was feeling bloated and just generally out of shape.

"I cut out a lot of the booze. That really helped, as well as walking the dog, eating extremely well and living more healthily," she said.

The Xpose star (32) admits she also turned to a natural diet supplement in a bid to shed those extra pounds.

Lisa was adamant that her chosen weight loss product, Slender Pro Active, is all natural and will not have any negative impact on her health down the line.

"I'd never try anything that I wasn't sure about. I would never touch any of those over-the-counter diet pills," she told the Diary.

Lisa insists her decision to lose weight had nothing to do with competition with fellow small-screen stars; Glenda Gilson, Karen Koster and Aisling O'Loughlin, saying she has always had a different body shape.

"I know people would like to believe that we don't get on and there's lots of competition but honestly I don't compare myself to the others at all," she said.
