Dubai-born Jessy Mendiola opens up struggles with Weight-Loss

Dubai born Filipina actress, Jessy Mendiola, is now hailed as the most attractive actress in the Philippines, though her weight loss journey has been one with many hardships and problems.

For years, the actress was bashed for her looks, with some criticizing her for gaining weight. The bullying had reached to the point that Jessy actually thought of leaving the showbiz industry after an extensive battle with depression.

In an Instagram post, Jessy admitted an opened up about struggling with weight gain and weight loss through a series of photos. She also confirmed that she once suffered from bulimia.

Bulimia or bulimia nervosa is defined as “an eating disorder usually characterized by periods of binging—or excessive overeating—followed by some kind of compensatory behavior.”

“I only started taking my health seriously sometime last year. It’s so hard to be in tip-top shape especially when a lot of people try to put you down and tell you how you’re supposed to look. Sometimes you’re too thin, sometimes too fat. I used to hate my thighs and arms. I would always kill myself at the gym just to achieve unrealistic body goals and starve myself just to reach my weight goal, 100lbs.”

On top of the weight issues, she was getting non-stop criticism over her personal life.
It was then that Jessy approached nutritionist Nadine Tengco and trainer Kat Geronimo-Garcia to figure out the right exercise and proper diet to slim down.

Her boyfriend, TV host Luis Manzano, also encouraged her to get healthier and stronger. She credits the change to her coach and trainer, beau Luis Manzano.

“He made me feel better every time I felt so insecure about myself and he helped me recover from my depression and made me feel loved every single day,” Mendiola wrote.
