Living healthy is a struggle for many people in the world as it is not an easy feat to maintain a healthy lifestyle. To attain a healthy lifestyle is not a day’s job. It requires consistency, determination, self-discipline and atimes money.
Talking about celebrity lifestyle, it could at times be a blessing or a curse. Celebrities have to live up to the expectations of their fans. They get appraisals or bashing for their decision.
Here are top celebrities whose body transformation left people in awe.
1. Eniola Badmus aka Gbogbo Big Girl/ Badosky
Topping the list with the most recent is popular Nollywood actress and script writer, Eniola Badmus. She is a plus-size actress, whose amazing weight-loss transformation left fans and colleagues in awe last year.
Speaking about her inspiration to embark on weight loss, the 38-year-old actress said that she made the decision to lose weight because of the stigma and pressure she had received.
“What I can say is, it got to a point I could not control what I eat anymore. I eat anything, so far it is edible. So from there, I knew something fishy was going on. So far, I have lost 33kg.”
Although the actress did not explicitly spell out the procedures that resulted in the weight loss, from her explanations, it appears that the actress must have undergone a gastric bypass surgery.
Gastric bypass is a widely accepted weight loss surgery that helps people lose weight by changing how the stomach and small intestine handle the food one eats. After the surgery, the stomach will be smaller. Eniola Badmus, who had been a subject of social media bullying, isn’t the first celebrity to undergo a gastric bypass to aid weight loss. Badmus began her acting career in 2000 and became famous about 10 years ago, after she featured in Funke Akindele’s blockbuster Omo Ghetto.
