Manila Mayor Isko Moreno said he started to lose weight even before he became mayor, and not because of the demands of his job.
This, after he admitted that he has been asked a lot about his weight.
“A year before the campaign period, talagang I prepared myself. Physically, because I know it’s going to be a tedious campaign,” he said in a radio interview.
According to him, he is intentionally losing weight and bared that he lost around 40 pounds through “slow juicing.”
“Yung una talaga, by design. Takwarents ‘yun,” he said.
“From 192 (pounds), through slow juicing, na-reach ko ‘yung 155. Then pinump ko ng kaunti to 165, so minentain ko na ‘yung 165,” he added.
