Bigg Boss 13 fame Shefali Jariwala says she was epileptic and gained a lot of weight due to her medication

Shefali Jariwala was one of the most popular contestants in the last season of Bigg Boss 13. While the model turned actor did not survive the show for too long she made many heads turn due to her appearance. The actress has often said that she pays a lot of attention to her body and takes good care of it.
 
However, she wasn't always this fit. In a new interview with ETimes Shefali has revealed that she gained a lot of weight due to her medication. Shefali revealed that she had epilepsy and had a first seizure when she was just 15. She further said, "I was 15 years old when I had my first epileptic seizure. Yes, I was an epileptic. The medication that I had to take because of the condition caused a lot of weight gain. Shortly, after that I did a music video which was a big hit after that I was busy with work, dancing all the time. I had to keep my energy levels up and also look good on camera. That's when I realized I need to shed a few kilos and I went to the gym for the very first time, so my fitness journey started from there about 20 years ago and it has a whole new meaning today."
 
"What started 20 years ago with just something for me to lose weight, has become so big for me today. My workout regime is very different from what it used to be at one point in time. Initially, it was cardio, gymming, heavyweight training. I realized as a woman especially post 30 your body really changes and so should your workout regime," she added.
