19 Aug – Kris Bernal wants you to know that she is neither bulimic nor anorexic - just that her body is built that way.
As reported on GMA News, the actress who started her own vlog recently, revealed in her first video that she used to be bullied by others because of her skinny frame, with many accusing her of having an eating disorder.
"But in all honesty, it's just my body type, it's my genes. I'm an ectomorph, so ectomorphs are the body types that are the most resistant to gaining weight or gaining muscle because of our fast metabolism. My metabolism is so fast like no matter how much I eat, I don't really get fat," she said.
Bernal also stated that she was often asked by people why she would still work out despite being so skinny.
"But honestly because ever since I started working out and ever since I got into this fitness lifestyle, I am at my healthiest. I can say I do not get sick easily and this is the best feeling," she added.
The actress admitted that it is hard to make people understand that being skinny does not mean one should not work out.
"No, this is my body type, I have embraced it and I love my flaws, and I hope the same for you. If you are big-boned or fat, just embrace your flaws and work on it if you want to," she said.
