Iza Calzado denies her weight issue being genetic: ‘It was the lifestyle’

On Kris TV, actress Iza Calzado revealed the real score between her and her half-Filipino, half-British boyfriend, Ben Wintle.

When Kris Aquino asked Iza if they are now engaged, she said, “Hindi pa ate, wala pa.” She also said that they are not talking about the topic seriously either, “Hindi pa seryoso.” 

According to Iza, her boyfriend was born in Hong Kong. Aside from studying and working in Hong Kong, he also studied in England and worked in China. He also speaks Mandarin fluently but has trouble speaking in Filipino. 

Iza also talked about her weight issue and admitted somehow feeling sad when she sees junk food. However, she said, “I have accepted that I will never look like them (models) but at the same time, at least I know I’m trying my best” and acknowledged the fact that she has improved a lot from her weight before.

She also said her situation is not genetic, “No, it’s not. My parents were not fat when they were young. It was the lifestyle… Daddy loved to eat eh. And then of course, we were being spoiled by food. Pag wala, ganyan, ibibigay lang kung ano yung gusto. Pag si Daddy kasi, bibigay niya lahat. Kung gusto mo ng mga fast food, ganyan, bibigyan ka niya ng pera, bilin mo anong gusto mo so hanggang sa lumaki ng lumaki. I think I found comfort also in food because ‘di ba, medyo sad, pag may sadness sa bahay, ganyan. Food was my best friend.”
