I realised one day that all I was doing at parties was discussing other people’s diets. Someone finally said to me, ‘why don’t you write a book?’ So I did. It was an outpouring, my way of dealing with my weight issues. My publisher said, ‘But you haven’t written anything on how you put on so much weight in the first place.’ What was I doing in those 10 years when I put on 45 kg? I think I just switched that part of me off. I wrote my book at dinnertime for three-four hours every day. It helped me skip dinner. It took me nine months to finish the book. I’m very deadline oriented.
