Diet Ala Lee Sung-kyung

Adidas official

After Weighlifting Fairy Kim Bok-joo, Lee Sung-kyung needed to lose her weight back to her actual size. She gave tips on how to lose weight in some interview.

In Please Take Care of My Refrigerator she revealed that she never liked salty food. She liked them when she was young, but because she bloated easily, she ended up not eating them. Besides that she also doesn’t eat flour often. But gluten goes well with her. She added, “I never starve myself to maintain my figure. I fear that if I starve myself, there will be a yo-yo [effect], so I slowly and deliciously enjoy cooking that is healthy. For exercise, I do core workouts that raise my basic metabolism rate.

She also emphasized to not starve yourself when dieting. Instead it’s better to cook healthy food and control the food intake. It will be better because humans still need energy for activity.
