By Jennifer S Kuwanta
Famous Nigerian chef, Hilda Baci, apparently underwent rigorous physical and mental preparation to be fit to cook for hours.
The Akwa-Ibom-born chef, who broke the Guinness World Record for the longest cooking time by an individual, lost 30kg in the space of two years to achieve her desired body goal.
A throwback video of Hilda showing off her remarkable weight loss transformation has surfaced on the internet. This comes after her inspiring quest to surpass the current record held by Indian chef, Lata Tondon, who cooked non-stop for 87 hours and 45 minutes in 2019.
Hilda, who has demonstrated an admirable level of strength and resilience since she started the 4-day cooking marathon on Friday, revealed that she used to weigh 110kg but has successfully reached a current weight of 81kg.
She also blamed her unhealthy eating habit for her excessive weight gain and said she has to be cautious to maintain her current weight..
“Some of you that just followed me don’t know this but used to be me at a point, I was weighing 110 kg and this is me today at 81 kg. It took me two years to get here; losing weight and getting my desired body wasn’t easy. It took a lot of steps, and now that I have lost weight I have to maintain it so I don’t go back to where I was coming from,” she said.
