After four months of strict diet and exercise, Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Gen. Debold Sinas said yesterday he lost 20 kilos.

Sinas said he has been following the weight loss program of his physician for the past months, which has provided positive results for his health.

“A strict diet, healthy living at bawas inom. Kung uminom man konti lang tapos sleep well,” he said during in an interview on ANC.

The PNP chief said he opted to consult a doctor rather than losing weight on his own as he was worried it could put him at risk because of his age.

Sinas is 55 and will retire from the police service in May 2021.

“Baka mamaya kung ano mangyari sa iyo, maging vulnerable ka pa sa COVID,” Sinas quoted his doctor as saying.

He ordered police officers to exercise to meet their ideal body mass index.

Sanctions will be imposed on PNP members who will not follow the order, Sinas said.

BMI is computed by dividing a person’s weight in kilos by the height in meters squared.

Sinas has introduced a four-minute exercise that police officers should perform even in their offices twice a day.
