NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Actress Eva Longoria said she overcame sadness after her divorce to take control of her health, and now she wants to spread her positive message, especially to Latina women.

"My diet was coffee," Longoria told Dr. Mehmet Oz on an episode of The Dr. Oz Show. She said she was so skinny because she was sad and not eating after her marriage to NBA player Tony Parker ended.

"I went to the doctor to get some blood tests because I said something's wrong," Longoria said. "And I was just depleted of every vitamin. He said it's as if somebody took a straw and sucked everything out of your body."

She said tests showed her iron level was very low and her liver was overacting. So she made changes to her diet and lifestyle to get back on track.

"I cut out all sugar, anything that turns into sugar, is sugar. I love a soda, I'm not a chocolate candy person, but, I like pasta in anything," Longoria said. "For about three months, I did a really strict no sugar diet, and I had more energy than I've ever had. My palate was different. Things tasted better."

She also talked about the the three medical tests that every Latina woman needs and also showed Dr. Oz one of her favorite healthy Mexican recipes.

Watch her full appearance on the Friday, April 26, 2013, episode of The Dr. Oz Show, which airs at 4 p.m. on Fox 5.
