MANILA, Philippines — Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Gen. Debold Sinas on Thursday joined other members of the police force as the PNP launched its weight loss program on the observance of World Obesity Day.

Sinas was one of the many PNP personnel who was present in the launch of the Chubby Anonymous Project, a weight loss program for police members classified as obese.

The Chubby Anonymous Project is in partnership with the Fit Filipino Movement headed by fitness coaches, Jim and Toni Saret. Under the project, police personnel will be undergoing an intensive weight loss program under the fitness coaches.

“The relentless, true-to-form, and honest-to-goodness weight loss program of the PNP leadership, past and present, aims to help our personnel be watchful of their weight because I believe that a weight imbalance caused no less by obesity is definitely not healthy, especially in this time of the pandemic. We should be more cautious of our health and physical well-being,” he said.

Back in November, Sinas said that the PNP will resume its strict monitoring of the body mass index (BMI) of police officers, a mechanism that was earlier suspended because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The BMI, as defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is an indicator of high body fatness, and which can be used to screen for weight categories that may lead to health problems.
