As a response to recent criticisms that she’s been putting on weight, Angel Locsin
gamely told PEP.ph
that she had been bingeing on food because of stress, a common situation for emotional eaters
. Angel is aiming to get herself back on track using the “insanity workout”
exercise program, but she doesn’t believe that being thin automatically means you’re healthy.
“Well, sa akin naman
it's not an issue,” she is quoted as saying on PEP.ph
. “Ang importante sa akin 'yong
health. Huwag niyo naman sabihin na pangit kasi, ang dami kong kakilalang medyo
healthy pero napakaganda naman ng ugali, napakaganda naman ng hitsura. Aminin naman natin, hindi naman tayong lahat kapayatan, di ba?
(Health is what’s important to me. Please don’t say they’re ugly because I know a lot of full-figured women who have great personalities and are beautiful. Let’s be honest, we’re not all thin, are we?)"
Angel further claimed that she preferred being healthy to being skinny. "Hindi naman kasi ako nanininwala sa sobrang payat, na hindi na kumakain. Hindi na
healthy 'yon. Mas gusto ko 'yong kapani-paniwala na nakakabuhat ako ng lalaki. 'Yon naman ang
character ko. Siguro, humealthy lang ako.
(I don’t believe in being so thin that you don’t eat anymore. That’s not healthy. I have to look like I can lift a guy. That’s my character. Maybe I’ve just gotten healthier.)”
