The transgender star took the healthy step because she wants to avoid diabetes, which runs in her family - and she realised she was consuming too many sweet treats.

She tells New York's My Town magazine, "I'm surviving without ice cream and Snickers bars. Diabetes runs in my family so I decided to see what life was like without sugar. I had a ritual of getting a pint of Ben & Jerry's ice cream, microwaving it for 90 seconds and eating the whole pint. I got into a sugar coma."
