Roxanne Tong Shares Tips for Smarter Weight Loss

The actress, who once weighed over 120 pounds, has found a suitable slimming method.

Enjoying a blossoming career and a sweet romance with Kenneth Ma (馬國明), 33-year-old actress Roxanne Tong (湯洛雯) is radiant as ever and looks to have slimmed down. The former Miss Hong Kong contestant shares her dieting secret in a recent interview.

Focusing Efforts During Post-menstrual Period Every Month

Reaching over 120 pounds at one point, Roxanne revealed that she successfully shed 10 pounds in two and a half months with a method recommended by her traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) physician.

She shared, “My TCM physician said that the menstrual cycle is a good time for weight loss, specifically, metabolism is enhanced during the 5th to 14th day after our monthly period [due to rise in estrogen levels]. This makes it a ‘golden time for weight loss’ for dieting by skipping snacks and desserts. Combined with appropriate exercise during this window, you will see pronounced weight loss effects.” Women will also feel more energetic during this time frame which facilitates exercising.

Strategic Cheat Days With Aerobic Exercise

Roxanne added that focusing weight loss efforts on the ‘golden time frame’ while allowing herself some cheat days during the rest of the month will be more effective and psychologically bearable. Besides this knowledge, she also calculates her daily calorie quota using the scientific formula for body mass index (BMI), while factoring in her exercise volume.

The actress would typically have eggs and grapefruit for breakfast, a carb-heavy lunch followed by meat for dinner, keeping within 1300 calories per day while slashing an additional 200 calories during the golden 10-day period each month. She combines this with stay-home aerobic exercise to burn fat. Roxanne said, “I’d use the treadmill, do bicycle workouts and K-pop dance every day. Just try to make myself perspire more.”

    So frustrating that this is the body image celebrities and news mags want to convey. Google says Roxanne is 5’7″. 120 lbs is underweight for her height. When if she were much shorter, 120 lbs is a very healthy weight for most women. It is irresponsible to talk about dieting like this. Focus should be more on moderation and keeping active, rather than an unhealthy, likely unattainable number.

      a camera adds 10 pounds also the fact that the weight is just a number. she probably had very little muscle tone to begin w/ thus even at a low weight she still looks a flabby. if you look at people who work out, they will weight heavier but they look visibility thinner.

        @m0m0 I don’t think she ever looked flabby because at her “fattest” she was underweight. In FH4, she was told to lose weight, but looked perfectly fine.

        @m0m0 I think that depends on the eye of the beholder and a bit harsh.

        @potatochip I believe she’s not overweight, just that she had prob had zero exercises and thus she looks flabby, think she’ll look better if she tone up her muscles, cardio alone is not going to help her

    Wow I googled her and then realized Roxanne, Jennifer, Wingto and Jacq were from the same pageant year. And Roxanne is 5′ 7.5″ ?? I don’t know why I never thought she wasn’t thattt tall. Honestly I think her body is great. I am so sick of all these pageant winners actresses having the chop stick figure. It’s not attractive looking and unhealthy. Even Ali gets so thin. It was only when she wasn’t filming that she looked like she gained a little.

    Her exercises did not include any muscles building, which is important to allow burning of calories even when you’re not exercising. She should just get herself a professional trainer that has knowledge on nutritions and food.

      i was thinking of the same thing too. i am suprise her methods worked for her. she probably had 0 exercises before all that otherwise how could slashing that much calories and doing all cardio lose that much? It all makes sense b/c the body usually adapts after 8 weeks. otherwise she could have just been doing more and more cardio each week.

        @m0m0 she’s going to see herself gaining soon if she continues.

        yes, if she keeps doing the same thing. just recently happened to me. I now am in the process of reverse dieting, couldn’t believe eating more and moving less are actually helping me lose fat.

        @m0m0 works differently for everyone, I did a DNA test that tells me food to avoid and exercises that’ll help me more. My PT adjusted my sessions based on the test

        our bodies fluctuate, sometimes we lose if eat more, some times we gain if we more. depends on your stress level really. no set standard will work for everyone and what works for someone this time but may not next time around. Been there, done that.
