Kelly Cheung’s Transformation from 147 to 120 Pounds
A recent episode of TVB drama Big White Duel <白色強人> featured Kelly Cheung’s (張曦雯) character Dr. Lui attending an evening gala in a sexy low-cut gown and saving a civilian in the process. Although she was extremely fit during the filming, Kelly did not cut back on meals to prepare for this scene. Her 23-inch waist is maintained through regular exercise and healthy eating habits.
When Kelly first immigrated with her family to the Unites States, she realized that she was larger in size than most boys her age. She loved eating all types of unhealthy food like hamburgers, fries, and pizza. “My life philosophy was that if I wanted to eat, then I should eat. How can you resist temptation from all these yummy foods?” Consequently when she was 16 or 17, her weight ballooned to 147 pounds. Times have changed and she now weighs 120 pounds and has a 23-inch waist.
In order to lose weight, Kelly has tried dieting, juicing, and cutting out all oily foods. However she realized that all of these methods do not provide long term results. If anything they caused her body weight to fluctuate easily. So she decided to keep a balanced diet and to occasionally partake in intermittent fasting. Kelly loves eating junk food so she has not cut out chips, chocolate, or junk food from her diet. She believes that if she cuts them all out, it will lead to uncontrollable cravings. Instead whenever she eats junk food she will eat a simple meal at night to balance it out. For meals, she will eat both carbs and vegetables and will not specifically only eat one category of food. If that meal includes more meat, then she will eat less carbohydrates. If she is cooking, she will try to use organic ingredients and avoid processed food.
Kelly used to exercise infrequently, but Jazz Lam (林子善) helped her change her mindset. He said, “Due to our irregular sleep schedules, our bodies take the brunt of the stress. We are only able to live long, healthy lives if we prepare for it now.” Now she goes to the gym five times a week and has a personal trainer to help her plan workouts.
