Seems like EXO's Xiumin, who is known for the nickname "baozi," which means "little bun" or "meat bun" in Chinese, is shedding his "baozi" image after his recent weight loss.

The EXO member has reportedly lost about 8 kilograms (18 lbs) since his idol debut. According to allkpop, the idol led a segment of the TV show "Star Show 360" entitled "My Little EXO TV." During the segment, Xiumin shared his personal tricks for losing weight.

The idol revealed, "The easiest way to lose weight is to not eat. But your body will become emaciated if you try to lose weight by not eating. So I prepared my own way of dieting but still eating."

Xiumin mentioned that one must wake up early in the morning to exercise such as going for a long walk for a minimum of one hour. Then, one can eat whatever he wants as long one does not eat until he is completely full. Then, one must starve himself once more for about four hours straight until lunch time. The person can then eat lunch and starve for another four hours. It is the same until dinner time and the person must make sure that he has not eaten anything for at least four hours before he goes to sleep.

Before the segment ends, Xiumin said, "If you do this for about a month, then you will definitely not gain any weight, and you will have shed at least some pounds. What's most important is to be active. For those who attend school, you must wake up early in the morning to exercise. The second most important thing is to have perseverance. You absolutely need perseverance. Diligence, effort, and positivity. You can succeed at your diet if you practice these three things."

EXO's former member Luhan popularized Xiumin's "baozi" nickname because of his cute, chubby cheeks like that of a 5-year old boy.
