1. AOA’s Seolhyun
AOA’s Seolhyun revealed in the past that she loves eating so much, she doesn’t know why she became an idol. In spite of her love for food, her secret to weight loss before a comeback is to avoid all foods high in calories while eating only sweet potatoes, chicken breast, eggs, and tomatoes.
2. Apink’s Eunji

3. f(x)’s Luna
Once known to be the “chubby” member of f(x), Luna has made a complete transformation through diet and exercise. For breakfast, she will eat cheese and eggs and, for dinner, only vegetables. When she is preparing for a comeback, Luna will eat strawberries, tomatoes, and apple sauce. If she needs to shed an extra few pounds, then she will only drink a concoction of green tea, lemons, and water!
The members of Lovelyz didn’t really have a special diet regimen when they were trainees. Instead, they practiced dancing for 6 hours a day and barely ate any food before their debut. Probably not the healthiest way to shed a few pounds, so you shouldn’t try this at home.
