In a dialogue from her latest movie Ang Babae sa Septic Tank, comedienne Eugene Domingo offered her guests a salad dish. She mentioned that she had already stopped eating meat for a few years.
That's actually true for Eugene in real life. It's already been a while since she stopped eating pork and beef.
When PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) asked her if she's a pescetarian, she replied, '''Yon ba ang tawag do'n. basta puro fish, vegetables, brown rice. Lahat organic. no meat.'
A pescetarian diet excludes land animals and birds, but includes seafood in addition to fruits, vegetables, nuts, grains, beans, eggs, and dairy.
Eugene said she did not have a hard time changing her diet because, "Mahilig naman talaga ako sa gulay at saka isda."
She also noted, "Dapat ise-set mo lang ang utak mo. Alam ko naman na ang lasa ng baboy. Alam ko naman na ang lasa ng beef. Okay na 'yon."
However, Eugene said that before changing her diet, she consulted a doctor. She also went to The Farm at San Benito in Batangas to try its colon hydrotherapy.
"Nag-The Farm ako, nag-cleansing.
"Kasi, kailangan mo ng jumpstart, e.
"Kailangan mo ng analysis ng isang duktor, ganyan. You know, for health reasons also."
From 140 pounds, the award-winning actress gradually shed off 30 pounds. And her motivation, Eugene exclaimed, "Damit!"
She further explained, "Wala na akong maisuot. At saka hindi ko na maintindihan kung ano ang hitsura ko.
"Parang nagsawa na ako sa hitsura ko na parang ano lang, bilog, bilog, bilog.
"Parang gusto ko naman ng may korte, medyo lang ha.
"At saka 'yong makapagbihis naman ng konti.
Aside from her personal reasons, Eugene thought that it would also benefit her as an actress.
She said, "Kasi, siyempre, visual tayo, lagi kang nakikita sa camera, laging nakikita sa TV.
"Sana naman, medyo magulat-gulat naman sila.
"Also part of being an actress, mas maraming kang roles kung ikaw ay tama [sa pangangatawan]."
