MANILA — She’s one of the fastest rising young teen stars in local showbiz. After winning the first Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition reality show, Kim Chiu has been swamped with various TV guestings, modeling stints and even a hit teleserye at the start of 2008. So why won’t reports that she has anorexia go away?
In an interview, Kim said she is now regularly seeing a nutritionist to gain weight and fend off rumors that she has an eating disorder. She said her new diet has helped her increase her weight to 102 lbs.
“Parang ang dami-dami na, hindi natatapos iyong anorexic issue pero iyon kumakain naman ako, tumaba na nga ako mga 4 lbs. Dati ang bigat ko ay 98 lbs.,” the young actress said.
Kim said her nutritionist sends her a weekly list of foods she has to take. “Nagpapadala ng papers yung (listahan) ng kakainin ko for this week. Binibigay lang sa akin nakasulat kung ano ang kakainin ko,” Chiu said.
