Melissa Leong describes her life-changing health diagnosis and why extra kilojoules don't scare her one bit in the latest issue of Prevention, on sale now. Meanwhile here's a sneak peak! 

The one ingredient you put in everything?

Hot sauce!

One thing people don’t know about you?

I carry a tin of salt and pepper in my purse at all times.

Describe yourself in a hashtag.

Hmmm, that’s a hard one. My mantra is ‘work hard, but don’t be a d*ck’. You can be successful without having to push hard and step over people.

Favourite time of the day?

As much as I’m not a morning person, you never, ever regret watching the sun rise.

Your go-to for a good laugh?

I really love watching [US adult animated sitcom] Archer – it’s completely inappropriate and yet so funny.

Finish this sentence: When I’m 50, I want to be…

...the most ‘me’ I’ve ever been.
