Los Angeles: TV host Sharon Osbourne felt like a "cheat" when she had a gastric bypass because she didn`t lose weight in a healthy way.
Osbourne underwent a gastric bypass procedure in 1999 after spending years battling with her weight, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
Speaking to "Entertainment Tonight", she said: "I felt like such a cheat when I had that band on my stomach. It makes you vomit the whole time. Nothing goes down because it goes out."
Sharon, 61, and married to rocker Ozzy Osbourne, now controls her weight by sticking to the low-carbohydrate Atkins diet.
"I`d be fibbing if I said I don`t cheat because I do cheat. I cheat a lot on my diet. We all do, but I don`t guilt myself out because the next day I`ll start with my Atkins breakfast sandwich and I`m right back on it," she said.
