Since 2009 she had places in the top six of every single Ms International and Ms Olympia event.

As well as stunning the world with her physique, blonde Debi, 44, also models and is a personal trainer in her hometown of Jupiter, Florida. Her photos are extremely popular with 'muscle lovers' - people who think a maxed-out muscle physique is the perfect body form.

It meant she had the discipline and drive to stick to the strict nutritional and training regime necessary to sculpt her body - including eating seven times a day. She treats her body like a 'finely tuned engine', and says, 'I eat to feed my body, I don't live to eat. I actually hate eating so I treat it as a job.' lift in a press same as elephant ' Debi says that body building had helped her grow into a strong, independent woman with good self-esteem.
