Kat Gumabao talked about being a plus-size model in an interview on ANC's "Headstart" on Friday.
Speaking with host Karen Davila, Gumabao made it clear that a plus-size model is not necessarily fat, as some people think.
"It can also mean you're just extra tall, or your upper body is bigger, or your hips are bigger. It's just not the normal mold of a fashion body," she said.
"I work out as much as I can. I really try to eat healthy just to fuel my body the right way, so you can't say I'm unhealthy," she continued. "Yes, I may be higher in terms of weight, but not to the point of obesity or unhealthiness."
Gumabao went on to remind the public that "health comes in different sizes" as she encouraged them to be comfortable in their own skin.
"It depends on your ethnicity, it depends on your genealogy, because not every one has a certain way of losing weight or gaining muscle. It really depends on the person," she said.
