MANILA - Manila Mayor Isko Moreno said he is intentionally losing weight, and not because of the demands of his job.
Speaking to DZMM, Moreno said he started to lose weight even before he became mayor.
"A year before the campaign period, talagang I prepared myself. Physically, because I know it's going to be a tedious campaign," he said.
Moreno said he lost around 40 pounds through "slow juicing."
"From 192 (pounds), through slow juicing, na-reach ko 'yung 155. Then pinump ko ng kaunti to 165, so minentain ko na 'yung 165," he said.
Moreno admitted he has been asked a lot about his weight, stressing that his weight loss is not because of his job.
"'Yung una talaga, by design. Takwarents 'yun," he said.
