Female Idol Stars Dieting Secrets… Ranges from 1 Meal a Day to Protein Added to Low-Fat Milk Women are always interested in the best dieting methods, and the female idols have responded by revealing their dieting secrets.
IU appeared as a guest on the October 15th episode of MBC FM4U's "Hope Song at Noon with Kim Shin Young." Kim Shin Young commented that IU had lost so much weight, and the singer responded by saying, "While I was filming the drama, I gained a lot of weight. I decided to lose all the weight to get back on stage."
IU revealed her dieting secrets on the show and shared, "I eat 1 apple for breakfast, 2 sweet potatoes or 2 bananas for lunch, and low-fat milk with added protein for dinner" and "I also exercised like crazy, and lost 5 kg in 5 days."
IU continued, "I really don't like hearing that I've gained weight. My face looks the prettiest on screen when my face is skinny. I wish I had a plump body and skinny face." She shared the grievances of every female star.
Model idol Nine Muses also shared their dieting secrets, and theirs is the "1 day 1 meal" method. In a recent interview, Nine Muses said, "Because of our jam-picked busy schedules, we unintentionally eat 1 meal a day. We don't purposely not eat; we just don't have the time. Instead, when we do get to have a meal, we eat excessively."
Nine Muses continued, "When we eat, our stomachs protrude, and it bothers us the whole time we're onstage. Managing our bodies while we're active with our schedules is a burden we inevitably have to bear in this profession."
Previously, Nine Muses was a hot topic when they revealed their paper cup diet, which consisted of fitting one meal's contents into paper cups. In a broadcast, Nine Muses stated that they maintain their figure by filling 3 cups with rice, side dishes, and vegetables or fruits.
SISTAR's Soyou, who is an idol known for her toned body, also revealed her dieting secrets. In a showcase held on June 11th, Soyou said, "As I was filming for a waterpark CF, I realized the need to create abs. I focused not on anaerobic exercises, but on strength training. Even though I had one meal a day, I learned to be strict when it was necessary. I mostly ate brown rice and vegetables.
It is the fate of female stars to always be mindful of their diet and maintaining their figure. Upon reading about female idols' secret dieting methods, netizens commented, "IU might faint from her protein diet," "I know all of this, but I can't help it if I'm hungry," "As expected, it takes a lot of effort to get an idol's body," and "I'm sad that I need to carry a paper cup around every day in order to have a body like that of Nine Muses."
