After gaining a lot of weight in the first year of the pandemic, Brigitte Lin recently revealed that she has successfully shed 12 kilograms in just six months.

As reported on Mingpao, the 66 year-old former screen siren recently showed off her new slimmer figure, saying that she was advised to lose weight by her daughter after reaching 68 kg last Christmas.

“My daughter persuaded me to lose weight for my health. My friends also looked at me and shook their heads… At one point, I realised that it was too much so one day I made up my mind. After Christmas, I began to eat modestly, with less oil, less salt, and less starch, and no snacks and sweets,” she said.

Aside from controlling her diet, Brigitte stated that she also took up sports including table tennis and badminton, and would sometimes hike up the mountains.

“After dieting and exercising, my weight has dropped to 56kg. I feel a sense of accomplishment,” she said.

Asked about her secret in looking young, the actress smiled and said that there is no secret.

“I don’t care whether I’m young or old, beautiful or not. I think this is just a part of life. There is nothing to be afraid of, it’s just the law of nature. You just have to accept it,” she added.
