Magalona responded with an Instagram post of her eating a vegan lasagna yesterday “to put their minds at ease.”

“So many people have been asking me if I still eat, so I thought of sharing with you one of my meals — vegan lasagna!” she said in her post, which included a video of her scarfing down the lasagna.

“Not that I need to explain myself but since a lot of people have been assuming that I’ve become anorexic or even bulimic, I thought of posting this to put their minds at ease,” she added.

Magalona previously attributed her fitness and wellness journey to her husband, Rob Mananquil, in an Instagram post back in August.


She admitted then that being in show biz had pressured her to look a certain way but that she could not achieve this with diets and exercise because she was doing it for others.

It was only after becoming more spiritual that she shed pounds. “And I’ll be honest that when I started practicing yoga and meditation, the results came only after I submitted myself to the Lord,” she said.

The actress regularly practices yoga with her husband; both became certified yoga teachers last September in Thailand.  /ra
