Former Nollywood star Richard Mofe Damijo, has dismissed reports that he is ill.
He said that the speculations were made as a result of his drastic weight loss.
In an interview published in the Sunday Sun of Nigeria, RMD explained why he is now slimmer.
According to him, he decided to change his lifestyle and that has resulted in his current physique.
“I woke up one morning, to be precise May 9th last year, and I weighed 120kg. I said this cannot go on. Neither of my parents crossed 60kg. I thought it would be sinful for me to keep eating and putting on weight and living an unhealthy life,” he said.
According to him, he decided to change his lifestyle and not to necessarily diet, “so what I did was to get somebody who knows about food. A lot of people don’t succeed when they diet because they don’t understand food. They diet, they drink a lot of shakes, tablets and all of that and after a month they become bigger than they were.
“What I did was very simple. It’s all about knowing the kind of food you eat and what it contains. I have a daughter (Onome) from my late wife, who is obsessed with calories, weight gain and weight loss. She was with me all through Christmas and New Year. She’s 26. I love what I do now; I just eat well and exercise,” he said.
“I feel lighter, but there are lots of people who feel I am too slim now. It’s about how I feel inside. I’m at my best physically. I have never felt better. I feel lighter, I don’t suffer indigestion. Now I weigh about 97kilos.”
