Struggling with weight fluctuations since 2015, Gillian Chung (鍾欣潼) gained significant weight recently. The 40-year-old was almost unrecognizable with a much fuller face and torso, shocking viewers with her appearance in Chinese variety show Doki Doki Love <怦然心動20歲>.
During the worst periods of her hormonal imbalance, Gillian had gained 20 pounds and she ate seven meals a day. For her wedding in 2018, Gillian underwent a rigorous diet and exercise regimen to drop excess weight so she could fit into her wedding dress. However, the stress of her divorce in 2020 seemed to have taken a toll and the pounds slowly crept back again.
When her Twins partner Charlene Choi (蔡卓妍) was asked about Gillian’s new weight gain, she said, “Gillian is actually very healthy. It is only an imbalance in her hormones…. I don’t want to talk about this too much because it will give her pressure. The most important thing is that she is happy and healthy.”
Though Gillian’s larger size came as a surprise, many are relieved to see that she seems happy. Many commented, “She is still pretty even though she gained weight”; “Her features are so pretty” and “A little bit more meat makes her look really cute.”
Gillian also expressed that she is actively trying to lose weight. She even shared her weight-loss diet on her social media with fans.
