As if she didn’t have a banging body already, actress and celebrity chef Lucia Mthiyane (43) has shed some weight and looks absolutely dashing! The cook says she owes her new body to cutting down on meat.

Speaking to Move! Lucia says she began her journey six weeks ago and has already seen tremendous results.

“I wanted to drop two dress sizes for a new production I’m working on. It was not easy. I wanted to quit the first week but kept going. The second week got easier especially because I started seeing the results,” says the former Rhythm City actress.

Aside from her diet Lucia also exercises for 45 mins daily. She has also cut down on alcohol, unintentionally. “I realised that when you don’t eat meat you don’t long for alcohol as much as you did before. The cutting down of alcohol just happened,” she says.

BODY SHAMING

The chef is totally against body shaming, especially on social media. “It’s not okay to make harsh comments about people’s weight. If you don’t like how they look keep it to yourself. Those kinds of comments are very hurtful,” she says sternly.
