Korean Actress Admits Eating Only Three Spoons of Rice Every Day to Maintain Slim Figure

Because of the extreme pressure of wanting to look perfect in the cutthroat entertainment industry, a Korean actress revealed the extreme diet she has to stay on to maintain her slender figure.

Korean actress Lee Tae-Im confessed that she has only been eating three spoonful of rice everyday for the last six months. This shocking revelation came during an episode of MBC Every1’s “Video Star,” reported by The Korea Herald (via Asia One).

Known before for her healthy curves, Lee Tae-Im admitted to being insecure of fellow actresses Park Han-Byul and Lee Chae-Young after they all got together for a photoshoot.

“I did the photo shoot with actress Park Han-Byul and Lee Chae-Young, who showed up with perfectly toned bodies. I became ashamed of my body and was embarrassed to stand next to them. I got so upset that I cried,” the actress said.   

Tae-Im realizes that what she is doing is dangerous and warns viewers not to follow her example. So, when viewers raised concerns about her fragile shape, she promised that she will gain 2-3 kilograms and increase her rice intake from three to six spoons.
