If you bought it, flaunt it! 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? star Larissa Dos Santos Lima plans to maintain her incredible plastic surgery results with diet and exercise, she exclusively tells Life & Style after debuting her curvaceous “revenge body” done by Dr. Lane Smith at Smith Plastic Surgery.
“I started at 170 pounds,” the season 5 star, 33, tells Life & Style, revealing she’s lost 40 pounds in total. “Before COVID, I went to the gym with my boyfriend [Eric Nichols] four times a week, 60 minutes a day, doing various cardio, arm, leg and stomach workouts.”
Larissa says she is not able to exercise at the moment because she is still recovering, but she and Eric are “planning to go to the gym as soon as possible.” The Brazilian bombshell reveals she usually focuses on sculpting her bottom, doing squats and leg machines as well as cardio.
As for what she eats, Larissa says she is trying to avoid “chocolate, bread and milk” while focusing more on “soups and salads.” The reality star does not snack after 6 p.m. and stays away from “heavy foods” to keep her trim figure.
“For breakfast, I eat two eggs, two pieces of lean ham, whole grain toast with a small amount of real butter. For lunch, lean turkey or ham on whole grain bread with avocado, lettuce and tomato,” Larissa reveals. “Dinner is an eight-ounce cut of New York strip steak or broiled eight-ounce chicken with a bowl of salad. I use lemon as a dressing. I also eat unlimited fruits and veggies as snacks.”
The TV personality says she ultimately decided to go under the knife because she was dissatisfied with the way her body looked before and knew it would give her the look she desired. “Even though I was working out, I still was unhappy because I had a bulge in my belly,” she explains. “People can ask why get surgery if you can go to the gym, but there are some things you cannot get rid of.”
“I try to eat healthy, don’t eat a lot of carbs, the same stuff that everyone does to lose weight,” Larissa shares. Eric previously served as her personal trainer to help with her stamina and weight-training before she had the cosmetic procedures.
So, what does her new look entail? The 90 Day Fiancé star opted for a rhinoplasty and boob job in February, and a tummy tuck, liposuction and fat transfer in August. After unveiling her transformation, Larissa will be treating fans to more never-been-seen content with the September 15 launch of her OnlyFans page.
90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? airs on TLC Sundays at 8 p.m. ET.
