Her Struggle to Lose Some Weight
Before her debut with TWICE, Momo spent her trainee days practicing and preparing almost everything. From her skills to her looks, everything should have been kept on track. To get an ideal body, Momo went on a diet.
It wasn’t an ordinary diet, but Momo went on an extreme diet since she lost 7 kilograms (15 pounds) within a week! At that time, she had to lose that amount of weight no matter what happened, and that’s why she tried very hard to achieve it.
Momo confessed that she used some extreme methods to lose weight which also made her terrified about her health condition. During the 7 days, Momo didn’t eat any proper meals and spent most of her time in the gym. She only ate ice cubes as an energy source, but she worried that the ice cubes would make her become fat.
Eventually, she lost the weight with the additional three days from the actual due date, but the fellow members were worried since Momo looked very pale as if she was dying. Fortunately, she could gain weight again after D-Day of her debut with TWICE!
TWICE’s Momo’s Diet
Currently, Momo can deal with food and healthy diet methods instead of doing an extreme diet like in the past. To maintain her health and ideal weight, Momo tries to stay in shape with regular exercise. She no longer does a strict diet and can eat whatever she wants whenever she gets hungry.
