41 tons shed in Yunlin County weight loss program

A weight loss program organized by Yunlin County's Public Health Bureau this year has helped 18,732 residents shed a total of 41,000 kilograms, the bureau said Tuesday.

Two of the participants were invited to share their weight loss experiences at an event held by the bureau Tuesday.

Kuan Yang-kuo, who lost 16 kilograms, said he exercised by riding a bicycle to work, running and working out on a stationary bike. Kuan said he also reduced his food intake at breakfast and lunch, avoided dinner and drank sugar-free beverages.

Another participant, Huang Chuan-min, said his girlfriend promised to marry him if he succeeded in losing weight. Huang said he used a sports app and body fat monitor to monitor his exercise volume and body condition every day and eventually lost 13 kilograms. (By Chiang Chun-liang and Y.F. Low)
