S1E4 Papi Zak Standup Comedian, Emcee & Debut Wrestler opens up on his fitness journey

Help, I’m pre-diabetic! The Kurang Manis Sugar, Less Podcast

01-03-2021 • 32 mins

Introducing Papi Zak, well known in the comedy circuit in Malaysia and the “biggest” Malaysia has to offer, states his website. For over 12 years, he's written and performed material for his shows, and has fast established his quirky brand of humour and witty observations on the absurdities of every-day life. Zak was a former LiteFM and REDFM radio broadcaster and his comfortable presence in front of a camera has landed him screen work as the host of two television lifestyle programs – ‘The Halal Foodie’ and ‘Happy Endings’. Zak is currently the brand ambassador for Mr. Potato. Papi Zak speaks to co-hosts Jasmine Low and Nikki Yeo about his fitness journey - how he shed over 30kg from his 160kg stature, his childhood as a third culture kid, his mother's amazing cooking, his quest to inspire others on the path towards fitness - just as he has and his relationship... with food!

In this same episode, you'll hear the voices of Dr. Pran Yoganathan, gastroenterologist featured in the next episode and Dr. Desmond Menon, medical lab scientist from Ep. 2. Papi poses some curious questions Dr. Pran and together, we learn about satiety, cholesterol levels and gout.

In the tradition of AsiaFitnessToday.com's methods of using rhythm and movement as therapy, we introduce a comedy skit by Papi Zak at a TimeOut Kuala Lumpur show to seal off this episode. Enjoy!
