Sharon Cuneta Tackles Obesity in ‘Bigating Pinoy: The Biggest Loser Primer’

Sharon Cuneta finally speaks up on her own fight against obesity this Sunday (May 15) in the primer for her upcoming reality show “The Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition” on ABS-CBN.

In a rare TV interview, the Megastar will share the physical and emotional pains of people who are regarded by society as fat, obese, and heavy.

“Unfortunately, society judges you according to your physical appearance. It’s not really according to your abilities and your talents. Minsan kahit it’s very unfair, it’s a reality,” she explained.

But she is not the only one opening up on Sunday’s TV special, entitled “Bigating Pinoy: The Biggest Loser Primer.” To prove that obesity is a serious problem in the country that should be addressed, the primer will also show case studies featuring six “heavy” Pinoys.

The list includes seven year old child star Karl Camo of “Goin’ Bulilit.” While people find him cuddly and cute, he is also in a crucial state of child obesity. Danica, 14, has to deal with greater pressure growing up because of her weight. Twenty-two year old Alvin, on the other hand, has been rejected over and over during job applications.

There is also Lorie, 33, who can’t bear a child because of excessive fat in her body. Forty year old Rowena, meanwhile, is a mom but can’t attend her children’s graduation in fear that they will be teased by their classmates because of her.

Finally, get to meet Reinnier, who at 25 already has a memorial plan due to the health risks of his obesity.

If you ask Sharon, she believes that there is still hope for all of them to improve their lives. That is if they begin taking care of their health like her. She said, “The Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition” can be a source of inspiration to people like them, and even those who are perfectly fit and healthy.

“Kayang-kaya ‘yan. ‘Pag nakita niyo yung journey ng mga contestant to lose weight, I think representation din yan ng kaniya-kaniyang problemang pinagdadaanan natin, kahit hindi siya obesity,” Sharon stressed.

  1. the previous comment is as stupid as the one who made it. of course they will have the starting weigh-in, nagsisimula pa lang pinapangunahan mo na!!! well, it’s obvious that it’s your first time to watch “biggest loser” kaya pagpapasensyahan pa kita. But then again hold your horses para di ka napapahiya… i hope you’ve seen the weigh-ins last Tuesday and the continuation yesterday. So there! Hmp!

  2. Just finished watching The Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition. Everyone’s question in my home was, what weight/lbs/kilos did these contestants start with? Why would you guys make them do those exercises and start on making them lose weight without showing your audience what the starting weight was? Didn’t anyone think of this? Kinda seem stupid for a show called Biggest Loser if you don’t show what weight they start with. Doesn’t make sense.

  7. ABS-CBN RULES NATIONWIDE // May 14, 2011 at 4:09 pm //

    reasons why abs-cbn is the no.1 station:
    (based on research)
    1. abs-cbn is the largest network in the philippines
    2. it is a member of one of the largest group of companies in the philippines (lopezes group of companies)
    3. it is the most diversified network, maraming subsidiaries
    4. enlisted sa 30 blue chip stocks ang abs, gma mataggal ng tanggal, 2008 pa (ito lng naman ang isa na basehan ng state of economy ng bansa)
    5. mas mahal ang stock ng abs kysa sa gma, 41.2 against 6.8 (ang layo ha, pang bargain nlng ata ang stock ng latter)
    6. more than twice mas malaki ang revenue ng abs kysa gma, 32Bil against 14.3Bil
    7. mas malaki ang net worth ng abs kysa gma, 3.2Bil against 2.8Bil
    8. mas malaki pa nga ang liabilities ng abs kysa total asset ng gma, isang indikasyon na pinagkakatiwalaan ang abs na umutang dahil sa kakayahan nitong magmabayad (kng may utang man ang abs na malaki, gagamitin yon sa expansion — kaya taposin na ang issue tungkol dito, hindi naman ito pinuproblema ng mga inutangan ng abs)
    9. mas mahal ang ad minuts ng abs kysa gma, pro mas marami parin ang commercials na natatanggap ng abs (halos lahat na kinukuhang endorsers, mga abs stars pa)
    10. abs lng ang pinakahanda sa digital tv format switching, in fact hinihintay nlng ng abs ang cue ng NTC pra cla makapagsimula sa bagong format (GMA hinarangan pa ang abs, palibhasa takot dahil di pa handa)
    11.wagi parati sa takilya, movies at music recordings tinatangkilik at pinagkakatiwalaan. parating block buster ang movies, sold out ang concerts etc.
    12. de kalidad ang shows at programs
    13. sikat na sikat ang stars kahit saang panig ng bansa
    14. mas penetrated anf tfc, pinoy tv halos libre nlng pro binabasura nlng dahit na nkakasukang shows
    15. pinag-uusapan kahit saan pati na sa internet, trending pa
    16. maraming awards mapa pinas man o labas ng bansa
    17. never nagyabang sa ratings, hindi inuulit kng nag aanounce man sa tv (di tulad ng gam na inuulit tlaga kahit d naman totoo at kapanipaniwla)
    18. pra sa abs, hindi cla ang no. 1 kudi lahat ng kapamilya
    19. hindi nagyabang sa tulong na inaabot
    20. higit sa lahat, ang minention ko sa taas ay never ipagyabang ng abs, tao na nagsasabi na sila ang no.1)

    so ano masasabi ng mga kapuso ngayon?
