In addition to quitting alcohol, Billy cut out smoking and followed a ketogenic diet for a time, which further contributed to his slimmed-down 148-pound body.

I’m not sick,’ he stated firmly.

I feel healthy and I feel good. I don’t necessarily exercise tremendously, but I eat right, drink enough water.”

While dismissing ongoing rumors of drug use as ‘unfair‘ and ‘untrue,’ Billy tries not to let the intrigues get to him.

I’m super unbothered,” he said. “My wife knows who I am and what I am… That’s what’s really important. What other people say about me does reach me, but I don’t care.”

Looking back, Billy cites his wife’s patience and support as crucial during the mood swings that came with maintaining his diet and giving up his bad habits like alcohol and sugar for months at a time.

When you don’t have alcohol, Tito Boy, and for 6 months you don’t have sugar which is fruits, rice, pasta, bread, alcohol, you will shrink. You will lose the weight.”

Motivated by a desire to live a long, healthy life and be there for his family, Billy made a personal promise to God to turn his habits around after witnessing his own father’s health deteriorate due to smoking and drinking.

As he puts it,

I want to be a father. I want to have a family. Gusto ko magkaroon ng pamilya in the future. And when God gave me Coleen, and everything started, I was like I was born again.
