AFTER stepping down as MCA president, Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai (pic) started working out and successfully shed 3kg in a month. According to China Press, Liow weighs around 78kg now compared to 81kg a month ago.
According to Liow, the diet of Malaysians is rather unhealthy and most people consume too much sugar which causes them to be fat.
He urged the public to start exercising from a young age.
“The public should cut down on sugar and eat more protein, vegetables and fruits. However, do not eat too much fruits as they contain a lot of sugar,” he said.
Liow, who is 58, said he would spend at least four days a week at the gym.
He added that he felt healthier after changing his diet and lifestyle as recommended by his personal trainer.
> An Australian radiologist who sent almost 10,000 texts to her ex-boyfriend was charged in court with harassment, Oriental Daily reported.
Denise Lee befriended Matthew Holberton through the Tinder app and was upset when he tried to end the relationship after describing her as a “starfish” in the bedroom.
Lee is alleged to have started an eight-month stalking “campaign” against Holberton after they broke up in September 2015.
The 9,000-odd messages sent between both of them were presented as evidence during the court trial in Australia last week.
The relationship turned sour when Lee sent a text to Holberton and asked if she “wore him out” in bed, to which the latter replied that she is “as sticky as a starfish”.
In the text messages, Holberton told Lee on multiple occasions that he wanted to cut contact with her.
It is also claimed that the harassment campaign extended beyond Holberton, with Lee being accused of tormenting his family and friends.
Lee denied all the allegations and the next hearing will continue later this month.
