"As someone whose name has never been used in the same sentence as the word "sexy" before, I still found plenty of inspiration to eat a more healthy diet and lots of tools to help me do it. Heck, thanks to the persuasive powers of Ms. Kumai, you may even come round one day to find me wearing a face mask"
