Her body is the envy of many, but in a surprising interview the SISTAR idol Dasom has revealed her struggles with weight-loss, admitting that she sometimes spits out her food to stay slim.
The 20-year-old made the startling admission on agony aunt style TV show Hello on Tuesday June 24.
During the show Dasom, who appeared alongside her bandmates, was presented with a male viewers weight problem after living with his girlfriend who insists on eating small meals every 30 minutes.
In response the “Give it to Me” singer, who currently weighs 99 pounds (45kg) shared her own experiences. “I had a difficult time dieting,” she said. “I had an extreme appetite when I weighed 55kg [121 pounds]. I would even eat two portions of noodles with rice!

“One day during my diet, I had a craving for fried chicken. I ordered it, put it in my mouth just to taste it and then spat it out. I really had to lose weight. I still have that habit.”
She continued: “Perhaps because I got into the habit of eating in such small amounts back then, nowadays I can’t actually eat that much.”
Hyorin added of Dasom’s strict dieting ways: “[Dasom] will even write a menu of food she wants to eat [but can’t].”
