PNP chief Debold Sinas yesterday said he has lost 20 kilos, or 44 pounds, for the past four months, a result of strict diet and exercise.
Interviewed by Karen Davila over ABS-CBN News Channel, Sinas said he consulted a doctor before embarking on a weight-loss program that included a strict diet, healthy living and sleeping well.
“That’s almost four months program at of course nang nag-umpisa ako I consulted the doctor. I have my medical check-up at ginuide po ako kung papaano po. (That’s almost four months of program and, of course, when I started, I consulted the doctor. I had my medical check-up and I was guided how to do it),” he said.
“Strict diet, then healthy living at bawas inom, kung uminom konti lang, tapos sleep well. (Strict diet, then health living and avoid drinking (of liquor). If I have to drink, I’d take (a) small amount, and sleep well),” Sinas added.
Sinas said he actually requested for a face-to-face interview with Davila so he can show that he has really lost 20 kilos.
Davila earlier told Sinas that she interviewed him when he was still the director of the National Capital Region Command. Sinas assumed his post as PNP chief last November 2 and is due to retire in May next year.
Sinas encouraged policemen to give priority to their physical health, saying they should exercise with their doctors’ advice while observing health protocols amid the pandemic.
“I have issued a directive to continue implementing these policies…Sana naman, they will heed the advice na magbawas ng timbang (We hope they will heed the advice to lose weight),” he said.
Sinas said one is vulnerable to health risks, including diabetes, when one is overweight.
