Nigerian doctor cum actress, Jemima Osunde has opened up on why she visits the gym regularly, despite the fact that her body can’t retain fat and she doesn’t add weight, regardless of what she eats.

The Physiotherapist revealed she’s an ectomorph — a person with a lean and delicate build of body.

According to Osunde who is Adesua Etomi-Wellington’s bestie, via her Instagram page, revealed that being an ectomorph doesn’t allow her add weight. She also replied to questions people often ask her about her love for the Gym.

Sharing a video of herself doing an exercise in an Gym, she wrote:

JEMIMA why are you in the gym? Is it for eba? Is it for garri? Is it for beansssssss and dodo? Do you want to disappear? 

These are the types of questions you ask when you’re clueless

First of all, I’m in the gym because I want to be there. The gym isn’t a place for people to ONLY burn fat. There’s a long list of reasons why anyone can be in the gym. 

I’m also a physiotherapist and at least half the people I’ve treated in my career so far have required some exercises so I’ve been in the gym since like 300L. It’s just that that one wasn’t by choice.

Finally, I’m an ectomorph (please use your browser to see what it means as well as other body types). My body doesn’t retain fat. Now that I’m trying to reach my goal body weight, I’ve decided to do it by building muscle mass. 

For the longest time, I weighed 48kg a grown ass woman. My BMI shows I’m underweight and no matter what I eat or how I eat, I just don’t gain any weight. I’m now over 50kg (I won’t tell you my weight yet) and my goal weight is 56kg.  

Watch me manifest JEM THE STALLION for real!”
