Nollywood actress, Halima Abubakar, whose new weight loss and slim physique left some fans with distasteful comments on her Instagram page, has disclosed that she is not bothered by people’s opinion of her trimmed physique.
In her interview with Saturday Beats, Halima Abubakar who disclosed that can’t slim down for any man, 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 also disclosed that she has a man now in her life, and they are giving their romance the best shot. Halima Abubakar said;
“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.
