Zizo Beda has opened up about her weight problems.

The radio and TV presenter was speaking on etv's Screentime with Nicky Greenwall. The former Miss Teen SA said she struggled with weight issues when she was in high school, when she was skinny. "I would over exert myself in sport. I did everything you can possibly imagine to try and get to that size."

Nicky asked about when Zizo realised that her obsession with her weight was not good.

She told Nicky: "When it started taking over my mental space, that's all I could think about. Like 'how many calories and in this little bit of food and oh gosh, I can't have a juice because it's gonna give me  extra energy that I don't need'. I was really consumed by everything I was taking in. And this is when I started realising that this is no way to live. I was not happy. I was constantly grumpy and snappy and I thought 'but this is not me, I'm a happy person, I love life, I love to meet people'."

She added that she couldn't recognise herself anymore. Zizo seems to have put on some weight since then and she looks absolutely amazing.
