People often try to watch their weight for fear of being overweight. One known solution that many subscribe to when overweight is dieting. However, it doesn’t always produce the desired results.
Singaporean-born actress Eileen Yeow (姚莹莹) once stunned the world with her beauty. However, recent years have taken a toll on her body, thanks to her work. Although Eileen has been trying to maintain her figure, things supposedly didn’t go as well as hoped.
Eileen Yeon took to Hong Kong to expand her career and ended up joining TVB. At one point, she was known as one of the Five Fresh Beauties of TVB. However, Eileen later gave birth to her son who was born out of wedlock in 2011. As such, she ended up working harder as she was raising her son alone.
Her work ethics put her body in jeopardy consistently. She once suffered from a knee injury when filming “The ICAC Investigators 2000 (廉政追击)” which never fully healed. Eileen also neglected to treat her lower back pain as she was busy filming “The No No Girl (全职没女)”. It later resulted in her condition worsening and ended up making her body swell.
The actress later started to work on her figure, and showed her results during the Taiwan awards ceremony held earlier this year. However, Eileen admitted that the results hadn’t come easy. She claimed she had been on a ketogenic diet which had the opposite effect on her body. Instead of losing weight, she’d notice her body gaining weight. Additionally, she suffered from edema (swelling caused by excess fluid trapped in body tissues) and joint problems.
Eileen added that the doctor had advised her to return to a normal diet, but lessen her oil and sugar intake. She managed to lose 10 kilograms, but apparently wanted to continue her weight loss plan. Her most recent photos from the press conference of the drama “Come Home Love: Lo And Behold (愛·回家之開心速遞)” saw her looking much thinner.
The actress was dressed casually in a red shirt and a light-coloured jacket. She looked happy as she took photos with her cast members and friends. However, netizens noted that her cheeks were sunken and she looked haggard. While some praised her efforts at losing weight, others were concerned it would have adverse effects on her health. One netizen stated “Enough! Too thin will make you look old.” Another said, “(Being) too thin is not good.”
Looking after your own health can be much harder and requires more effort than we think. Do be careful when trying to watch your weight. Sometimes losing too much weight can also be unhealthy!
