Super Junior‘s Shindong has announced that he will be going on a diet with the help of a weight loss program company. The company shared a press release where they explained that Shindong currently weighs 116kg (255.7lbs) and has set his target goal to 75kg (165.3lbs).
The company is well known for hiring celebrity endorsements who are considered overweight or obese. They help them lose weight through their strict dieting program.
Shindong revealed that he decided to join the company after many failed attempts at controlling his weight. He explained that every time he lost weight, he gained it all back by returning to his eating habits.
I tried a lot of different diets in order to take care of my weight but I gained it all back and it’s become a danger to my health. I’m considering this my last chance, and I’ll be learning to diet through a healthy method.
Shindong had previously gone down to 93kg in the past after extensive dieting. However, he has gained it all back and plans to go even further this time to lose over 40lbs.
His dieting news followed news about Shindong getting fat shamed by netizens who criticized and ridiculed him for not being the typical “thin and fit” idol body type.
Although it’s uncertain if the malicious commenters had anything to do with his decision, but fans only hope for his happiness and health no matter how much he weighs or what he looks like.
