TXT Yeonjun lost significant weight in 2021. But, unlike other K-pop stars and celebrities, he chose not to starve himself.
The idol said that starving himself would likely lead him to experience the so-called Yo-Yo syndrome. Koreaboo explained that this is the cycle of gaining and losing weight due to an imbalance and unhealthy diet.
Accordingly, the TXT member chose to follow a diet that would work well for his long-term health and fitness goals.
Losing Cheek Fat And Avoiding The Yo-Yo Syndrome
Yeonjun talked about his diet and the Yo-Yo Syndrome during an interview with Elle Korea last year. He noted that to avoid the cycle of weight loss and gain, he had one proper meal during the day.
He also had Americano to stave off his hunger.
The idol added that he would no longer eat anything else throughout the remainder of the day even after going to bed.
Yeonjun, then, admitted that he went on with his diet in preparation for New York Fashion Week. But, specifically, he revealed that the motivation for losing weight was to lessen his cheek fat.
About The Idol's Regular Diet
The members of TXT broke down what they eat during their meal times in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, according to Kpop Starz. They said that they eat rice for breakfast when not on a diet.
The usual choice is kimchi fried rice. But, the idols noted that they also eat other rice meals, like omurice, bulgogi, spicy barbecue pork, and squid.
As for their lunch, they have a variety of choices because of the available delivery apps. Yeonjun did not, however, go into the details of his preferences.
For dinner, he skips it like most of the members of the group. As pointed out, only Taehyun eats proper dinner every day.
