RHOSLC's Heather Gay On Jet Ski Is "Reckless and Carefree"

Yes, she’s ‘on the Ozempic train’.

The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star Heather Gay is looking back on an explosive season of the hit Bravo show, posting a throwback of their cast trip to Bermuda. Gay, 49, shared pictures of herself wearing black shorts and a lifejacket, riding a jetski with co-star Meredith Marks. "Reckless & Carefree! 😂😂😂", she captioned the post. Gay has transformed her physique through weight loss—here's what her diet looks like, and what she thinks of Ozempic.


Lots of Eggs


One food staple always in Gay's fridge is eggs, which are filling and low carb-friendly. "You might have noticed that eating eggs for breakfast may keep you feeling fuller for longer — that's generally attributed to the high protein content in eggs," according to Keck Medicine of USC. "Whether you have an omelet for breakfast or a hard-boiled egg as a snack, eggs can help you stay satisfied after or between meals." 


Green Beans In the Fridge

Gay keeps canned green beans in her fridge for a healthy, refreshing snack. "If not prepared with higher-calorie ingredients, you can eat a large volume of them and feel fuller without over consuming," Maya Vadiveloo, associate professor in the department of nutrition and food services at the University of Rhode Island in Kingston, told the American Heart Association. "If what's available to you is canned green beans and you are picking between that and a non-vegetable, I would encourage people to select the canned variety."

Gay is obsessed with mini cheeses for a filling keto-friendly snack. "Whenever I try to do Keto, we've got blue cheese dressing, some yogurt, some Babybel cheeses. I'm a big fan of the Babybel cheese," she told "I feel, like, European and fancy when I take the little red rind off. There's just something about it that makes me feel like it's less impulsive of a snack and more of a thoughtful bite."


Ozempic Experience


Gay admits to taking Ozempic but says it didn't lead to any significant weight loss. "I've been on it for a long time, but hadn't really seen much results," she told PEOPLE. "And I haven't had massive results, but enough for people to notice, which is great. You lose five pounds, people are nicer to you. I don't know why. It's just the way the world works and that makes me sad for women. But happy that I'm down five."


Setting an Example

Gay doesn't want her daughters to be hard on themselves and self-critical. "I think that we put so much pressure on ourselves and it's hard," she told PEOPLE. "And I have three daughters that I love and I don't want them to have my genetics or have to struggle with society's standards of beauty. I just wish that there was a solution for all of us. But I'm feeling like I'm coming into my own a little bit and I think the glow up might be a little bit from that, too. But I'll give credit to all the medical intervention. It's my business."
