Itzy‘s Lia once shared her eating habit, saying that she eats really slow and enjoys every bite of her food. Ryujin also noticed this when they were watching Itzy’s eating show. Lia rarely touched her spoon and just talked with the members. This is different from Ryujin who eats really fast.
Ryujin noticed that Lia is really slow at eating because she smells the food, listens to the conversation that is going on, and joins in instead of eating. It stays on repeat until 10 minutes later she touches the food again and eats slowly.
No wonder she lost her weight. If you want to lose weight, try to listen to the conversation instead of eating. Hehe, jk!
