A few weeks after Alwyn Uytingco and Jennica Garcia officially confirmed their breakup to the press, Jennica is once again in the spotlight.
Remarks recently flooded the actress’s Instagram account regarding her noticeable weight loss. Some netizens were quick to shame the actress for her “exaggerated” weight loss. This happened when the actress posted a throwback photo with Chynna Ortaleza and Chariz Solomon from 2009.
Jennica was quick to speak up and debunk rumors about her weight change.
“I understand your worry about my weight. My father became worried about it too so he brought me to the hospital last April to get an overall checkup and results were all normal,” she revealed.
She also added, “I discovered that my heart is smaller than how it should be when I was only seven years old that is why it is not unusual for me to faint/collapse when feeling an extreme emotion crying/excitement but again, other than that, everything is normal.”
Pertaining to the photo, Jennifer joked, “As you can see mukha kaming tatlong kawayan. Kawayan pa rin po kami ngayon.”
She further clarified, “I am not underweight. I do not exercise or follow a diet either to be in the body shape that I am in. Last time I exercised, hindi pa po ako Nanay. [Rest assured,] The production feeds us well.”
Given her transparency regarding her lack of exercise due to her hectic schedule, she acknowledged that she should at least eat more vegetables because she frequently binges on food that is high in cholesterol.
She said, “Kailangan talaga mag exercise kahit po payat not for weight loss but to live longer at makasabay sa mga physical activities ng ating mga anak.”
