Popular Nollywood actress, Halima Abubakar, has opened up on her new physique after losing a ton of weight.
In a chat with Saturday Beat, the actress noted that she was not bothered by people’s opinion of her trimmed physique. She explained how she was able to shed some weight within a period of one month.
“A man can never make me slim down. A woman should lose weight when it is necessary, especially for her health’s sake. I feel it is the business of those that are bashing me because I am trying to be healthy for myself and not for anybody. I do not care what they are saying about (my) losing weight or not.
“They do not expect me to be ‘thick’ forever, do they? I recently started this weight loss regimen about a month ago. I reduced what I ate and I was able to achieve this weight loss.
“Now I eat a lot of vegetables and take a lot of juice; everything I eat has to be nurturing. I used to love pounded yam, but I stopped eating all that. Now I prefer to take carrots. Also, I was on a ketogenic diet, it worked for me but it is not for everybody,” she said.
She further revealed that there is currently a man in her life.
“There is someone in my life that I am ‘looking at’ but let’s see how it goes. I don’t know when the wedding bells would ring. The person is not in the movie industry; I cannot date someone in the entertainment industry. We should not be doing the same thing; I have always said this,” Abubakar said.
