Popular Nollywood actress, Ronke Oshodi Oke has opened up about her inspiring weight-loss journey
The Yoruba movie star, in an interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo, debunked rumours of any illness, declaring that she is ‘healthy and vibrant’.
The 49-year-old mother of two, however revealed that her weight loss was driven by her medical doctor’s advise.
During the interview, Ronke, whose real name is Ibironke Ojo-Anthony, shared details of her health-driven endeavour, shedding light on the pivotal role her doctor played in her decision.
According to the thespian who was weighing 110 at the time, she went to the UK, and her doctor advised her to reduce her weight to about 75kg.
Not until she started feeling ill and having high blood pressure did she take his advice seriously.
In her words:
“I went to the UK sometime ago, and I have a doctor there. The doctor told me to lose weight. I was 110 kilograms then, and he insisted that shedding weight was crucial.
“At first, I was taken aback by the suggestion, but later, health concerns like high blood pressure prompted me to take his advice earnestly.”
Recounting her journey, Ronke revealed that she ventured into the realm of weight loss by embracing a “Speedy Weight loss” product under her doctor’s supervision.
As the journey progressed, she eventually transitioned to using the “Fat Surrender” product, which she attested had a positive impact on her transformation.
However, the thespian was swift to caution on the careful use of such products, emphasizing the potential health risks if not used judiciously.
Elaborating on her experience, the Nollywood icon iterated, “I was too thin at one point due to the ‘Speedy Weightloss’ product.
Around that time, my weight had decreased to about 82 kilograms from 110. Subsequently, I opted for the ‘Fat Surrender’ product, which is what I use now. She said:
“Presently, my weight hovers between 86 and 87 kilograms.”
However, Ronke was resolute in advocating for a cautious approach when utilising weight loss aids.
“It’s not a scam, but proper usage is key. Overuse can potentially impact the liver adversely. I always stress the importance of eating properly and maintaining a balanced diet while incorporating these products.”
The actress, whose recent photos showcasing a noticeably slimmer figure had sparked speculation, clarified her motivations.
Addressing concerns about her well-being, she firmly stated, “I embarked on this weight loss journey for specific health reasons. I am indeed healthy and vibrant.”
