Popular Nollywood actress and scriptwriter, Eniola Badmus, has opened up on undergoing gastric bypass surgery.
The plus-size thespian, whose amazing weight-loss transformation left fans and colleagues in awe, finally revealed she underwent gastric bypass surgery in Turkey.
A Gastric bypass is a surgery that helps one lose weight by changing how the stomach and small intestine handle the food a person eats. After the surgery, the stomach will be smaller and one will feel full with less food.
Eniola Badmus, in a chat with City People, said she took the decision to do the surgery when it got to a point that she couldn’t control what she ate.
“In terms of my look, a lot has changed due to a decision made. Anytime I decide to do this celebration I want to surprise everyone. With the pressure and stigma, I had gone through I want to change that. So I want to surprise everyone and help myself.
It is not easy. What I can say is it got to a point I could not control what I eat anymore. I eat anything so far it is edible, so from there I knew something fishy was going on. So far I have lost 33kg.
I have other habits but I stopped even the one I thought I could not. I have one terrible habit that I am supposed to have stopped long time ago. This year a lot has changed about me, even I did not see this coming. As the year passed by I decided to change something.” she said.
