Wondering how Suzy lost a ton of weight? Read more about the Suzy diet and follow her journey!

Bae Suzy is known as a solo actress and artist. She debuted as Miss A under JYP Entertainment. Throughout the years, she gained a lot of popularity, and still to this day, she’s one of the most successful artists in Korea.

Who is Bae Suzy?

In the beginning, she had a lost and hated relationship with the public. In 2015 the publics’ opinion of Suzy switched, and she became the sweetheart of Korea. She’s been debuting since 2016 to maintain a good body while performing.

In 2010 Miss A debuted, and from the beginning, Suzy was a bit thinner and taller than the other members who made her stand out.

She quickly got a lot more popular and started hosting several TV shows. However, by the end of 2011, the beginning of 2011, she started gaining a bit more weight. Keep in mind she’s only 16 at the time, and that’s extremely young.

In 2011 she played in the Korean drama “Dream High.” This drama became a huge classic winning 14 awards and made Bae Suzy a huge star in Korea. Everyone knew her from the younger generation to the older generation.

This diet might not be 100% accurate, but we think it’s pretty close to her real diet since it probably has changed many times throughout the years.

Suzy’s Fame After Dream High

After playing in “Dream High,” she got her first solo, singing an OST “winter Child” for the drama she played in. Slowly she continued to gain a little weight, but the people began to notice this and started gossiping about her.

It became such a big deal that the manager had to make a statement about her and what she’s going through. The love and hate relationship with her large fanbase seemed a bit split up. Since half of her fans supported her and the other half criticized her.

At this moment, Suzy was still 17 and remained very mature for her age. On a TV program, Suzy finally spoke about her weight gain and addressed the issue.

After some time, Miss A came back with “Goodbye Baby,” and Suzy lost weight but wasn’t as thin when she made a debut. She looked pretty healthy. However, it’s always hard to diet when you have to force yourself.

Suzy Mainitaning Her Weight

She lost a bit of weight, and when Suzy was turning 18, she probably grew more into her body, and hormones balance out. Her popularity grew even more, and in 2012 Miss A comeback with “Touch.”

Suzy maintained her figure and looked very pretty when performing on stage. Things were going well for Suzy since she was also in the middle of filming a movie.

People will always criticize you matter what. Even if you lose weight, they will probably say that you’re very thin. When you gain weight, they call you “Fat” it’s very harsh in being a Korean star, but it’s worth it for most people.

They do what they love and are getting used to it. Many times people tried to reveal Suzy’s weight on TV to create a fuss about it.

Later in April, she maintained her weight and looked amazing while performing. However, by the end of the month, she looked as thin as her debut figure again. This made me worry because it’s extreme dieting that brought her there.

It’s not healthy at all, and you should never try this yourself. She’s been through a rollercoaster of gaining and losing weight every time she performs. The media and fans keep criticizing her, which is awful.

By the end of 2016, Suzy was still maintaining her figure and released her first solo album in 2017 with “Yes No Maybe’ She shot to the top of the charts making her song a huge hit. It also gave her a lot of attention again, and she started appearing on a lot of TV shows again.

As you can see, her diet has been going up and down for a very long time now, and we want her to be happy. If you’re a true fan, you should support her no matter what, and that’s what we’re going to do.

In late 2019 Suzy starred in the drama “Vagabond” that’s was a decent hit, and she looks to be maintaining her weight.

What Is The Easiest Diet To Follow To Lose Weight?

The easiest diet to follow is probably the ITZY Diet. This diet has more calories than the average Kpop diet and still makes you decently full. It’s not too bad, and if you add some snacks to it, you can probably follow this diet yourself.

I’ve been trying this diet for the last couple of weeks myself, and I’ve lost about 4.4 lbs / 2 kg. It took a long time to adjust to the diet fully, but it was worth it in the end. Another tip that you can follow is to do intermittent fasting.

This gives you a timeframe of 4 to 6 hours every day where you can eat and the other hours you don’t eat. It might sound very hard at first, but you’ll get used to it. It’s not that hard, and it’s pretty good for losing weight.


Now that you’ve come to the end of this article. I hope it has helped you gain a bit more information about Suzy’s diet. As you can see, her life hasn’t been easy at all, and many eyes are on her no matter what she does.

So, if you are ever going to diet yourself or see someone else diet, make sure to support them no matter what. They are probably going through a very hard time, and if you can support them in any other way, that’s good.
