The New Lovi Poe

I saw these first two photos of Lovi Poe more than a couple of times for her Bench BODY campaign. I thought it's nice that she finally lost her baby fat and turned into a sexy young lady. Her pose for these ads made her look taller and leaner also.






But, when I saw this recent photo below of Lovi Poe, I couldn't help but wonder if she's still eating healthy. Or did she just turned anorexic? I mean, she got really thinner. It looks like she lost so much weight from (I'm guessing) size 6 to size 0.


I was able to find the following PEP article on Lovi Poe regarding her struggle to lose weight, published December 2010.

In showbiz, thin is in, and thin is beautiful. That's what Lovi Poe noticed when she went to 2006 anniversary party of YES! Magazine. "I saw all of the artistas, and they were skinny," she recalls. "Oh, my God! Pressure!"
She felt the need to fit in. "That's when I realized that I need to lose weight."
For a girl who loved to eat, losing weight was a difficult thing to do. "As in, I could eat two quarter-pounders with sundae chocolate, with large fries, with Coke, in one sitting lang. So I had to give up that."
But in giving up the weight-boosters, she found herself going overboard. The realization hit her when she woke up one early morning and found herself almost collapsing from hunger.
"I was walking towards my room. and then babagsak-bagsak ako. I thought, 'I can't do this anymore.' I had to go downstairs, and I had to eat. So I went downstairs, I ate this wheat bread—pagsubo ko, hindi ko ma-swallow. So nagpa-panic ako. When I drank water, hirap din ako mag-swallow."
It was a scary episode, but she couldn't help but giggle when she recalls: "A few steps before my bedroom, bumagsak ako. Pero na-save ko 'yong glass!"
When she recovered, she finally made it to her bedroom, where her younger sister was then hanging out. "She said, 'Ate, are you okay?' I said, 'Yeah, hug me.' That's when I realized I have to stop, it's too much na."







Now, do you think she really stopped? Who knows?
Compare her before and after looks and tell me what you think.

  1. OMG! She looks sickly. Being thin is not in and that's what they thought because media is presenting the wrong image of sexy. Of course, look at her, I mean no offense to Lovi but her Bench billboard looks okay because of the editing and the lights or some other stuff but look at her pic in StyleBible, she looks sickly and you're right, anorexic. I love her body before compared now. She looks matured in a sickly way.

  2. As for me, yung sa bible style na pic, yeah I agree she looks sickly. Kahit di mo lang tingnan sa body, sa face lang... yung cheek nya ang lalim na parang ndi na kumakain for few days at parang puyat xa....
