Jea reveals the expensive reality behind "celebrity diets"

"I gained a lot of weight after 'Produce 101' so I spent a ton of money on trying to lose weight as fast as possible. I took pilates which was $80 a session along with a personal trainer who cost $55 per session and then spent $90 on a work out device. I barely met anyone for a month and a half and focused all my time on losing weight. I ended up with a $30,000 bill at the end of it all."
