In a bid to feel good about her looks and her body, a Korean actress revealed recently that for the last six months, she has been eating only three spoonfuls of rice per day.
Korean actress Lee Tae-Im made the revelation in an episode of MBC Every 1 “Video Star”. The actress, who was previously known for her curves and is now sporting extremely slim facial features and skinny physique, admitted that she felt insecure about her look after a photo shoot with fellow actresses, Park Han-Byul and Lee Chae-Young, who both showed up with perfectly-toned bodies.
“I became ashamed of my body and was embarrassed to stand next to them. I got so upset that I cried,’ she said.
She already lost more than six kilograms since she started her diet in September 2016. She also denied that her weight loss is due to an eating disorder.
On the other hand, the actress knew that her diet is dangerous and warns viewers not to imitate what she did. She promised her fans that she will increase her rice intake from the previous three spoons to six to gain at least 2-3 kilograms.
