Have you seen Carla Abellana lately?
The Kapuso actress, who is presently busy with shows like Because of You and Ismol Family, has lost so much weight.
She is also set to topbill the first-anniversary episode of Karelasyon on April 30, opposite her screen partner Tom Rodriguez.
Carla told the press, including PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment portal), on April 14, at the press conference for her upcoming show that one of the reasons could be because she has not been eating right.
After her taping, she would choose sleep over food.
“Siguro nga that was one way kung bakit ako nag-lose ng weight.
“Kasi naman, almost every day may taping ako.
“Kung wala akong taping, I’m shooting for an endorsement or may hosting job ako sa isang event.
“Kaya sometimes, hindi na tayo nakakakain din sa oras."
But she does find time for workout.
“I’m into circuit training since last year.
“I’ve already lost like twenty pounds. I’m back to being a size four.
“Mahirap noong una, kasi hindi naman tayo sanay talaga na mag-work out.
“But for health purposes, I went for it at nakatulong naman talaga siya,” Carla said.
CIRCUIT TRAINING. Her frequent trips to the gym was brought about by her weight gain last year.
She was so bothered then because she was not even eating a lot but was gaining a lot.
“Naging very conscious na ako.
“Before, hindi ko naman pinapansin yung mga pintas sa akin na tumaba ako or malaki akong tingnan sa TV.
“Dedma ako noon talaga.
“Ngayon, binigyan ko na siya ng pansin.
“I even had myself tested kasi baka hormonal yung reason kung bakit tumataba ako.
"But the test turns out to be negative.
“So maybe I need to be working out more, kaya I asked about this circuit training.
"It turns out to be an intense and high-intensity workout na papawisan ka talaga.
“When I started that, doon na ako nag-lose ng weight 'tapos nadagdagan pa ng sunud-sunod na trabaho.
"Mas nakatulong pa ‘yon.
"Now I’m in my right size and weight, and I want to maintain this.
“Mas careful na ako ngayon with what I eat, and I’m for healthy living,” she said, smiling.
LONG-OVERDUE BREAK. Her show Because of You will soon be replaced by Dennis Trillo at Heart Evangelista's Juan Happy Love Story, Carla said she's excited because finally, her travel to Europe will push through.
“It’s a vacation with my family. Last year pa kami dapat natuloy kasi na-extend ang Because of You.
“It’s a long overdue vacation at kailangan ko na siyang ire-book kasi matutuloy na rin kami.
“We’ll be touring Rome, Milan, and Paris. One week lang naman kami kasi kailangan ko ring makabalik because of my two other shows.
“I will miss the cast of Because of You, lalo na si Sir Yummy," referring to her leading man Gabby Concepcion.
Carla resumed, “It was great working with him. He’s very cool and everybody loves him on the set.
“Hopefully in the future, magkatrabaho ulit kami.”
