Sharon Cuneta’s desire to lose weight has always been open about it. But, besides having moving more projects, what reason could be the Megastar has for shedding pounds?
On an interview with Boy Abunda in his night talk show “Tonight With Boy Abunda” Sharon said wants to slim down because she plans to be photographed nude before everything goes south. The pictures will only be for private consumption to remind her of the work she put in to achieve her current shape, according to the Megastar. She said that “I’ve worked so hard for this weight loss. So, I want to pose nude but very tastefully.”
On the morning show of Karla Estrada, Jolina Magdangal Escueta and Melai Cantiveros Francisco “Magandang Buhay” the Megastar Sharon Cuneta shared her weight-loss program that allowed her to shed off 66 lbs. in a year. She said that believing in yourself that you can do it is the key to losing weight.
When the megastar vowed to lose weight on her birthday last January she came up with many plans how to do it. The Cohen Diet is a tried-and tested plan that fits your meals according to your health condition. The doctor himself designs the diet for you. And because it worked for her before, she is thinking of seeing the same doctor again.
Otherwise, she is reversing everything she did when she gained weight. She said that “Remember what you did when you gained weight? Just do the opposite if you want to shed pounds.” She satisfies her sweet tooth now by taking a bit of cake and small meals. It is a big improvement from the old Sharon who cannot keep her hands off with two slices of cake, bread and butter. She admitted that bread and butter were her downfall.
She has since replaced them with cold cuts and controlled her cravings. She added that you may undergo liposuction, even chop off body fats but you cannot maintain your weight if you don not control your eating. Losing weight got to be a lifestyle change. She even posted on her Instagram their funny exchange comments with her friend Fanny Serrano about her new found formula in losing weight. She shared that you sleep whole day if you can and at night. Then when you wake up have yogurt, two tablespoon or whatever you have.
Often once or twice a day it is how her meal goes. According to a fitness magazine eating 18 ounces of yogurt a day can help one drop a jean’s size. It also has a significant amount of potassium, phosphorous, iodine, zinc and vitamins B5 and B12 which maintains red blood cells and helps keep your nervous system function properly. In an article of fitnessmagazine.com, it is mentioned that if you are working out the perfect time to have a yogurt is within sixty minutes of exercise.
Because the protein provides the amino acids your muscles need to repair themselves, and the carbohydrates replace your muscles’ energy stores, which are depleted after a hard workout. Plus it speeds up hydration when follow with bottle of water.
The journey of Sharon obesity started when the megastar gave birth to daughters Frankie and Miel and from the point on she loses interest in looking after her figure and gotten used to under public scrutiny. So let us look back to the time when the megastar tried to shed some pounds of her weight.
In 2011 the megastar Sharon Cuneta openly admitted her battle with obesity and how people judge you according to your physical appearance. In the primer of the reality show “The Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition” on ABS-CBN she finally speaks up her fight against obesity, the physical and emotional pains of people who are regarded by society as obese, fat and heavy.
According to her “Unfortunately society judges you according to your physical appearance. It’s not really according to your abilities and your talents. Minsan kahit (Sometimes even) it’s very unfair, it’s reality.” She added that she started as a leading lady that can be seen more on love stories, that is how the audience, her fans came to love her. That she has been in the show business in a slimmer figure for a long period.
Now that she gained weight, it affects her. It limits her choice of roles. She want to do love stories but it is impossible at that moment, that she has to wait because she wants also to look like a real leading lady. She gets hurt when people comment about her figure, human as she is, but when she analyses the situation, she realizes that the fans were used to see her half of her size now.
So, she understand where her fans coming from. She said that the fans expect her to be a show biz figure to look a certain way because she work in a very visual medium. In the show Sharon lost more than 20 lbs. while show was running. Even her friend, hairstylist and make-up artist Fanny Serrano shared that the megastar shed more than six inches of her waistline, from 40 plus inches down to 34 inches. Serrano added that the megastar got inspired to lose weight while hosting “The Biggest Loser”.
In 2014 the megastar opened up about her struggles on an emotional post for her fans on Facebook. She said that she has nothing to lose by telling her fans that she has made mistakes that has affected all that she has worked for, bled for over the past thirty-six years which refer to her gaining weight. She feels that she has let her fans down. She let herself go, she allowed herself to get fat and stay fat. She became complacent and she never lost faith in God and to her fans, but she ignored the fact that she had lost faith in herself.
Sharon also shared that she has lost the drive to be on top maybe because she was happy with her family and being a mother to her children. On the other hand, Sharon’s career suffered greatly. Aside from losing interest in reviving her career, she had to limit herself to certain roles. She admitted that she went through a mid-life crisis, where she became rebellious about herself. She thanked her fans who supported her in high and lows. She wrote on her post “I don’t say this lightly, but I love you.
For loving me even if you don’t know ne as a normal human being and not the girl on TV and in movie reruns. I love you for knowing that I am not perfect, and loving me anyway. I love you because you give me reason to go on doing what I love to do – singing, acting, hosting. I love you because you make me feel needed and still worth something in this fickle world.” She plans to start anew by going back to basics.
Recently Sharon starred in her first independent film “Ang Pamilyang Hindi Lumuluha,” a Cinemalaya entry. Even after almost eight years away from the big screen, Sharon has reclaimed the hearts of many in her role as Cora, a woman desperate to reunite with her estranged family.
The movie starts simple in the town of Lanaoag lives a family who cannot weep whatever misfortune befalls on them, however it is rumoured that if one family member sleeps over to another house they will be reunited with an estranged family member. However many did not believe on the tale and forced them out of the town with the family’s whereabouts is unknown. This, in turn has caused their onion distribution to weaken, putting the town into despair and depression as they eagerly wait for the return of the family. The movie was an adventure and highly recommended for those who would like their sense of humor to be shaken, not stirred.
Back on the plan of the megastar Sharon Cuneta to pose for nude she is considering on hiring either Jun de Leon or Raymund Isaac to conduct the photo shoot. Jun de leon looked as the “Bad Boy of Photography” with his pepper and salt hair, jeans and white shirt look, women and his flaring temper. He has been at the top in photography for the past years.
