Hello Venus' Nara says she used to be so overweight she had trouble breathing.

SEE ALSO: Samuel Kim relays his feelings about the fans petition after failing to make the Top 11 on 'Produce 101'

 
The topic of diets came up on SBS' food variety show 'Baek Jong Won's Three Great Emperors', and Nara was able to have a taste of delicious Korean pancake. Her fellow guests were curious how the Hello Venus member manages to stay in safe, and she delved into her past, saying, "When I was young, I was really fat. It was to the point I had trouble breathing."

Nara continued, "My dad thought it had gone too far, so he took me hiking early in the mornings. I walked up the mountain with sand bags attached to me."

Well, it definitely worked!

    How the hell do all these Korean celebs lose all this weight and not have loose skin and stretchmarks?? I assume even surgery to fix loose skin leaves some scars. Witchcraft??

    Me too. Maybe because she was young her skin wasn't affected as much and just kinda bounced back? Ofc, it doesn't say how young she was...

    If they lose weight slowly then their skin gets to recoil better i guess

    Probably because they were never as big as they claim. And I think saggy skin only affects people who lost massive amounts, like half their body weight sort of amounts.

    lose skin is only if you are extremely obese and your fat sags, there are tons of overweight people who's bodies stretch out a lot, but it doesnt sag. If there is no sagging, your skin will always bounce back. Now the stretch marks are the real question. There is laser surgery to make them less visible, but it's not a 100% fix, so it's a mystery.

    Since she was young, maybe it kinda evened out as she grew older? Also they have a lot of good beauty/skincare products in Korea lol

    That's dangerous putting sandbags on you while exercising. It could lead to back problems :/ like Lay

    "I walked up the mountain with sandbags attached to me..." Well, I guess hardship leads to hotness.

    I assume she meant she had trouble breathing during physical exercise, not like when 300 pound people need oxygen tanks.
