Adia Chan Reveals How She Lost 40 Pounds

Returning back to TVB in The Ghetto-Fabulous Lady <福爾摩師奶>, 48-year-old Adia Chan (陳松伶) still looks beautiful and maintains a good figure for her age. Though she looked slim in the series, she revealed that 10 years ago, she weighed over 138 pounds.

“I was so fat that I couldn’t even tie my own shoes, so I made the goal to lose weight. My husband has always been really fit and pushed me to exercise as well. However, I had prepared 365 reasons of why I couldn’t. But at that stage, I knew I needed a change,” Adia said.

Motivated to make a change for the sake of her health, Adia walks on her treadmill for 40 minutes six days a week. “There’s no need to run. The speed is 5.6 to 6.2, with a slope of 1.5 to 2.0. I’ll sweat very quickly. Sometimes, I’ll watch a drama [while exercising]. Then I’ll do some weights.” Adia also cut desserts and sweets from her diet, but she still likes to drink Coke.

  1. Where does she have 40 lbs to lose? So now she is under 100 lbs? (138 lbs 10 yrs ago) that is so not healthy!

    1. @babycakes The weight goals is asia is warped, they always just think 100lb is max, and anything over that is fat. They do not distinguish between height at all. A girl of 5ft is expected to be 100lb, and a girl of 6ft is also expected to be 100lb.

      Adias bmi atm is 15.5 (if she is around 100lb) which is underweight and basically not as healthy as she thinks. Her previous weight at at 138lb brings her to little under 22 bmi, perfectly within the healthy range. I find it difficult to imagine you cant tie your shoelaces at this weight.

      I am under 5 ft height, and I have never been 100lb before, and everyone still agrees Im slim. I wouldnt want to be judged by asian standards….

    2. @babycakes She doesn’t look under 100lbs in that photo. Maybe when she meant she was over 138lb, she was actually 158lb to be exact. And then lost 40lb of weight and was 118lb in the photo?

      1. @mike right? lol…She looks ok above but she would never have been 100lbs…please….I am not into HK skeleton sizes but that’s not slim.
        haha…She looked even chubbier than above before that’s for sure. She looks 48.

  2. Anyone know how tall she is?
    I’m 5 foot 7 and weigh about 145lbs and I’m easily able to tie my shoes.
    She must be much shorter than I thought to not be able to tie her shoes while weighing 138lbs…
