Natalie Tong's new year resolution should be taking care of her health more seriously as the actress revealed that her work schedule in 2021 was so hectic, it affected her immune system.

At a recent event to celebrate the completion of her new series, The Invisible Team, the 40-year-old actress explained that the lack of rest in the past year caused her immune system to be weak and because of that, she suffers from severe food allergies.

“There are 20 foods I cannot eat, such as rice, pork and cucumber. I was overworking to the point the doctor said I should take a half-year break," the TVB actress said, adding that her fans can look forward to four dramas from her this year.

Although Tong wasn't nominated in any category at this year's TVB Anniversary Award (to be handed out Jan 2, 2022), she isn't fazed.

She explained: "(In 2021) I only had one drama aired. My other dramas will be out in 2022 ... Hope everyone won’t get tired [of watching] me.”

Tong stars alongside Kenneth Ma, Joel Chan and Tiffany Lau in TVB's upcoming action thriller The Invisible Team.

The actress said she hit the gym five times a week to build up her strength to play a member of a counter-terrorism unit.

"It's nice to see some results after all that hard work. I used to be very weak, but now I have some muscle," she said, and then added, "Now that we’re done filming, I don’t really have the motivation to workout again.”
