Yes, she could be a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model, but Southland's Regina King knows that it's what's inside that counts. Her family has a history of hypertension and despite her athleticism, heredity caught up with her. In her 20's, she was diagnosed with high blood pressure and high cholesterol. She went on a life-saving mission, literally, and instead of going on medication, the star took to improving her health the natural way. Her change in diet and exercise helped return her blood pressure back to normal. She cut out dairy and switched to rice milk to lower her cholesterol levels. She also added healthy fats, like flaxseed oil and omega-3 supplements. She points to exercise for relieving stress and helping her sleep better and says her motivation is "to be around to enjoy her grandkids."
