Debold Sinas Leads 'Chubby Anonymous'
Debold Sinas, chief of the Philippine National Police (PNP), is determined to encourage overweight cops to lose weight. That is why he launched “Chubby Anonymous,” a weight loss program from cops.
Chubby Anonymous was launched on March 4, coinciding with World Obesity Day. Leading the program was Sinas, who had already lost 55 pounds because of his commitment to a diet and exercise regimen.
“NCRPO personnel composed of obese 1, 2, and 3 took part in Chubby Anonymous project held at NCRPO Grandstand which aims to lead people with obesity into a more active and healthy lifestyle," the NCRPO wrote in a statement.
According to the PNP, Chubby Anonymous seeks to improve the health and reduce the weight of obese police officers so they can do their duties better.
In November 2020, Sinas instituted a similar weight loss program among station-bound police officers. At the time, he lost 35 pounds on the merit of his improved diet and regular exercise. He has since lost more weight.
“On a personal note, I'd like to announce that when I established this program, I followed my program: diet, exercise, and proper sleep,” Sinas told members of the PNP in November 2020.
