Jelena Dokic reveals she ditched ‘late night’ eating and lost 20kgs

Former tennis champion and Nine commentator Jelena Dokic has detailed how she lost 20 kg in 10 months after facing criticism from trolls.

The 41-year-old revealed last week that she had lost weight after concerns about diabetes, heart problems and high blood pressure in her family.

Dokic has always been criticized for her weight and this time was no different, so she took to social media to send a blunt message to the trolls.

She posted a before and after photo of herself and said “the most important thing” was that she was happy in both pictures, regardless of her weight.

“This is about health, not size. So many questions about my health, which led to me losing weight,” she said.

“Losing weight wasn’t a priority. It was just a side effect of my health care.”

Dokic said she lost 20 kg in 10 months and said it was small changes over time that helped her achieve her health goals.

“I stopped eating late at night, especially things like burgers, pizza, fries and desserts, because they made me feel so sluggish when I woke up, especially if I had to go to work or catch a flight early in the morning,” she said.

“That’s why I no longer eat heavy meals in the evening and I don’t eat anything after 7 p.m.”

She said she eats more salads and soups because they don’t make her feel sluggish; she also drinks more water and limits her consumption of sodas, including diet sodas.

Dokic also started taking a meal replacement shake once a day.

“It’s small changes over time and although there are still days when I eat cheeseburgers and fries, it’s just a lot less and I definitely don’t eat junk food when I’m working and traveling,” she said.

“Just consistency and small changes over time. I also started exercising more. Small changes for a healthier lifestyle.

“Remember there is no one size fits all solution and do what works best for you. Everyone is different.”

Social media users were quick to praise Dokic for her performance, with one saying: “You are always beautiful. Beauty comes from within.”

Another said: “Health definitely wins, so well done!”

“Gosh it makes me ANGRY that no man should ever have to make a post like this explaining changes to his body as if that body belongs to the public. I adore you,” one added.
