The full Dr. Oz interview of Rosie O’Donnell after her recent heart attack scare is now online – and for anyone with questions about heart disease, it’s a must-see episode.

“If you have told me that I enjoy eating what I’m eating now, I would not have believed you,” Rosie told Oz while holding a container filled with the junk food she used to enjoy. “I look at this now and I think, ‘This is what almost killed me.’ It does not have the pull that it once had.”

O’Donnell, 50, suffered a near-fatal heart attack back in August; prompting her to immediately change her lifestyle and embraced a pescetarian diet. She since lost over 12 pounds and says she’s in the best health of her life.

“I had a really sedentary lifestyle and that’s deadly,” she told People. “It took a heart attack for me to learn to take care of myself… Now I feel like I’ve been given a second chance at life.”
