After deciding she wanted to shed the pounds, Dilay’s supportive husband Erdi, 32, paid £7,000 for gastric surgery that removed 75 percent of her stomach.

Ayaz’s stay-at-home mom, four, and Ayla, two, said, “I drank three cans of Red Bull a day because my body always craved it.

‘I didn’t drink it for energy – I just loved the taste.

“After about an hour I felt like another serving as if I hadn’t just eaten.”

Dilay admits she was “disappointed” with herself when her frame got bigger.

She tried dieting, but an overactive thyroid, known as hyperthyroidism, made weight loss difficult.

Dilay underwent surgery last July at Hurstville Private Hospital in Sydney.

She said: ‘My health was at stake because I had an extremely fatty liver and was almost pre-diabetic.

“My doctor referred me and then I was able to get started.

“I can’t thank Erdi enough for his support!”

But the surgery was not the easy way out, Dilay had to change her bad habits.

She was forced to stop drinking Red Bull to make sure the stomach sleeve worked in her favor.

She said: ‘Adjusting to a smaller stomach and a new diet was so difficult.

‘But absolutely worth it.

“I used to be disgusted by my appearance, but now I couldn’t be happier.

“I have so much natural energy and can play with my kids without a break.

Not only my body has changed, but also my mentality.

‘I am so much more positive and comfortable in my own skin.’
