However, although it’s been great for her body, it’s made her love life go a bit flat.
Suzy, who boasts 2.3 million follower on Instagram (@suzyacortez), claims she hasn’t consumed sugar for years. But it hasn’t been an easy ride.
“The gym is my second home and I try to lead the healthiest life possible,” she told http://NudePR.com. “Physical appearance is also important to me and I knew that going sugar-free, no matter how difficult it was, would make me happy with the body I achieved.”
As well as not eating sugar, Suzy also has a tough workout routine. “I rely on military training to do my workouts,” she said. “This type of training challenges me to push my physical and mental limits. It’s an incredible experience.
“Military training is the foundation of my fitness success. It helps me develop not only my body, but also my discipline and determination.
“I believe anyone can be inspired and strive for higher levels of fitness. The secret is to dedicate yourself to the process and never give up, no matter how difficult it may seem.”
The brunette was inspired to give up sugar after studying her idol, former bodybuilder Arnold Schawarzenegger’s diet. She said: “I intend to compete in bodybuilding contests in Brazil and for Miss Olympia Wellness.

“I also do cryotherapy for around 10 minutes, being in an ice pool with the temperature below zero increases my blood circulation and brings me a incredible well-being because it helps with muscle recovery.”
Suzy admits her training massively affects her sex life, though. According to her, relationships have become increasingly difficult to maintain.
“It’s bad for sex because I save my energy to spend it during my five hours of training at the gym,” she said. “Men don’t always understand, which is silly.”
