KC Concepcion opens up on struggle with fitness journey
Anyone who’s tried to become fit and healthy knows that it involves strength and discipline beyond the physical. No one understands this more than KC Concepcion.
The host and actress has been candid with her fitness journey, previously sharing that she suffered from adrenal fatigue which forced her to change her lifestyle.
She revealed in a new Instagram post that she also had to face serious illnesses, dengue fever and pneumonia, and that her chronic fatigue made her “gain weight rapidly.”
Being “sensitive” to “chemicals, supplements and sugar” means she has to put in more effort when it comes to weight loss, the 32-year-old beauty shares.
With support and guidance from both medical and fitness experts—including footballer boyfriend Aly Borromeo, KC is on her way to her “best body ever”.
I’m on a journey to getting my #BestBodyEver as naturally as possible!!! 🖤 It’s been 2 years since getting the dreaded dengue virus AND pneumonia too, just 4 months apart- as you can imagine, my body went completely haywire! My grandma passed away during this time as well so I went through severe cortisol deficiency/chronic fatigue. I began gaining weight rapidly at a pace I couldn’t even keep track of. I’m super sensitive to chemicals, supplements & sugar so it’s generally harder for me to get “help” for weight loss. That means, I have to work extra hard to get back on track. 😤😬 I’m focusing on that healthy #LifestyleChange with eating, exercise, resting, stress management & being GOOD to ur mind & body every single day!!! 🙌🏻 Each body is different. Get to know yourself & understand what your body went through FIRST & helping it the right way will follow. #LiveHappy ♥️ NO EXCUSES!!! #TheKCFitnessDiary xoxo
Besides eating well—the actress shares her favorite seafood and greens on social media—she also has been into pilates, yoga and dancing:
Today I learned about “hot yoga” – the infrared light has healing properties & gives you smooth skin, detoxes your body, makes your ♥️ healthy. My word for it is GENTLE 😘 So different from bikram yoga which uses a more dry ultraviolet light to heat up the room… but just as much sexy SWEAT! Thank you @ina_tatsuzawa x @tessobenreyes for introducing me to my new obsession to complement Pilates! Let’s all work on getting our #BestBodyEver. It will be a journey! 🙌🏻 #TheKCFitnessDiary
Besides getting back into shape, the daughter of local showbiz icons Gabby Concepcion and Sharon Cuneta is focused on her work as National Ambassador Against Hunger of the United Nations’ World Food Programme. She raises funds through her online shop, KC’s Closet, where she sells secondhand luxury items. JB
