She believes we're all perfect with whatever weight or appearance we have.

In June 2021, Angel Locsin shared a peek at her new diet plan, showing that she has been on an 800-calorie diet. Angel recently opened up about the reason for her weight loss journey, saying in an episode of the online show Over A Glass Or Two that she is doing it for her health.

"Ginagawa ko 'yon for myself...for my health talaga," Angel said. "Maraming salamat dahil na-vaccinate tayo, nakikita natin yung blood pressure natin. So yung sa akin, mataas. Mataas siya, kaya kailangan kong pagtuunan ng pansin talaga. It's not really for vanity, siguro bonus na lang din 'yon. Pero hinahabol natin, yung imporantante, maalagaan natin yung sarili natin."

She adds, "Sa mga gusto pala mag-diet, gawin niyo para sa sarili niyo, hindi para sa ibang tao...Kasi kahit na ano mang weight natin, ano mang itsura natin, you're perfect, you're you, you're unique. Own it."

Angel Locsin's response to body-shamers

The Over A Glass Or Two hosts and Angel also talked about bashers who felt the need to comment on her weight, and the actress shared: "I cannot control how other people think [...] Hindi 'yon sukatan kung mababawasan yung pagmamahal ko para sa sarili ko. Buti nalang mahal ko ang sarili ko at nirerespeto ko ang sarili ko, kasi alam ko yung katawan na ito ay madaming pinagdaanan, maraming na-achieve din naman, at marami pa akong maa-achieve."


Angel added that just like everyone, she is a work in progress and that there's always room for improvement. "Tao lang din naman tayo, hindi naman tayo yung mga nasa magazines na dini-dictate ng society sa atin na 'yon yung perfect, 'yon yung maganda."

Back in 2019, Angel also told Boy Abunda how she responds to body shamers: "Parang maaawa ka na doon sa tao kasi anong klaseng person ka para magawa mo 'yon? Perfect ka, sobrang perfect mo? Parang ganoon. Hindi mo na lang papatulan… Ayokong makipag-deal sa mga ganoong klaseng tao kasi sad ang life nila. Ako walang problema, bakit ikaw ang dami mong issue? E katawan ko 'to, ako 'to, sarili ko 'to. E ikaw ba, okay ka ba?"
