Nigerian actress, Eniola Badmus who recently celebrated 20 years on stage has opened up on why she decided to undergo gastric bypass surgery in Turkey.
For the purpose of clarity, Gastric bypass surgery involves shrinking the size of the stomach, so one can’t eat as much as he/she used to.
Eniola Badmus whose body transformation got Nigerians in awe revealed that it got to a point when she couldn’t control what she eats any longer.
According to her, she ate anything edible and this prompted her to seek help.
Speaking in a chat with City People, she said:
“In terms of my look, a lot has changed due to a decision made. Anytime I decide to do this celebration I want to surprise everyone. With the pressure and stigma, I had gone through I want to change that. So I want to surprise everyone and help myself.
It is not easy. What I can say is it got to a point I could not control what I eat anymore. I eat anything so far it is edible, so from there I knew something fishy was going on. So far I have lost 33kg.
I have other habits but I stopped even the one I thought I could not. I have one terrible habit that I am supposed to have stopped long time ago. This year a lot has changed about me, even I did not see this coming. As the year passed by I decided to change something.”
