Nia attributes her skyrocketing “Wow!” factor to her dairy-free diet. She told People magazine, “I broke up with cheese. … [C]heese keeps calling me and trying to get me to meet at a cheap motel but I’m really committed to just staying single for awhile.

Drop dairy to shed flab and help cows? It really can be that simple.

    Wow she looks beautiful! “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” is one of my favorite movies. Officiating weddings is the one of the best parts of being a minister.
