The actress went for the procedure aimed at helping reduce her weight after she got worried of her ballooning weight.
“I knew I had to make better choices for myself when I checked into a health facility and i was declared class one obesity bordering class 2 . To be honest I had let myself go,” she said.
Kate actress said she qualified for the procedure which aimed at reducing the amount of food one ate and eventually led to weight loss.
“The balloon occupies about 15% to 20% depending on your stomach size. Its 500ml. Your stomach can hold upto 3 liters, this means you feel full, so you eat less. Portion control thus resulting in weight loss. I chose the gastric balloon,” Kate said.
The actress saw the results 16 days later as she had lost 5 kilograms although the initial days proved hectic as her body was fighting the foreign substance.
“DAY 16 , I am 5kgs down , I honestly feel much lighter and healthier, I have been on fluids , soups and pureed food , I will this week transition slowly to solid food. The first 3 days were abit uncomfortable, this is because the body was fighting the foreign substance (gastric Balloon) in my body… it’s a normal reaction,” she said 16 days after she underwent the procedure.
The procedure however does not work magic as it requires discipline and patience to bring out the results which were seen in Kate’s video which she shared on her social media pages on Sunday October 2.
A gastric ballon procedure is also not cheap and is said to cost up to Sh500,000.
