Kim Kardashian has come under fire for allegedly conveying a negative message about dieting after she said she shed 16 pounds in three weeks so she could wear a garment that Marilyn Monroe once wore to the Met Gala.
It had been “a big task,” the reality star added.
She said, “I didn’t starve, but I was quite rigid,” describing her food and workout routine to the fashion publication Vogue.
Kardashian donned the crystal-encrusted dress at a gala that opened the Institute of Dress’ annual fashion exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
But just for a short period—the posture before the media only lasts for a few seconds—before he switched to a duplicate for the later meal.
When Monroe performed “Happy Birthday” to US President John F. Kennedy in 1962, she donned the original attire.
Kardashian said that when she initially put it on, she was unable to zip up the back. She went on a diet nevertheless since she insisted on utilizing it during the occasion.
Additionally, her remarks on this topic received strong criticism on the networks.
According to the E channel, Riverdale actress Lili Reinhart said on Instagram that talking about following a strict diet “when you know full well that millions of young men and women are watching you and listening to your every word” is “very terrible”!
Reiterating such a regimen, according to Nichola Ludlam-Raine of the British Dietetic Association, is “irresponsible.”
The expert says it is almost impossible to reduce so much weight in only three weeks.
It would have been water and glycogen in Kardashian’s case, which is glucose that the body can store and produce energy without.
Although they may be rapidly lost, they are readily regained if the regular diet is resumed.
She emphasized that Kardashian’s remarks might be “hazardous, particularly for vulnerable individuals” and transmitted the “totally incorrect” message.
When most health experts advise (dieters) to lose one to two pounds per week, Ludlam-Raine said, “it was irresponsible because a lot of people will read it and watch it, especially people with eating disorders or young women, thinking that it is possible or necessary to lose such an amount of weight in a relatively short time.”
“It is not a sustainable way of living.
According to research, cutting off sweets makes you want them more, which may start a cycle of restriction and binge eating “Added he.
Kardashian “said that she was going to have a doughnut after putting on the garment.
To achieve their weight loss or health goals, we want to break them out of the binge-restrict cycle and demonstrate to them that they can eat anything they want in moderation.
She continued, “in mind.
In the end, it comes down to striking a balance between good nutrition for the body and the spirit, and by the looks of it, she hasn’t done that for the three weeks coming up to the Met Gala.
She advised against people adopting dietary advice from famous people.
Director of external relations for the charity Beat eating disorders, Tom Quinn, stated: “Advice on diet and losing weight may be highly alluring to those with eating disorders.
It may serve as an inspiration for them to engage in risky conduct connected to eating disorders.
“We firmly encourage anybody struggling with an eating problem or worried about their health to visit their GP if they feel sick and not try to follow the diet advice they hear (from celebrities).”
A reply from Kardashian in response to the criticism has been requested. Kim Kardashian has been accused of sending a damaging message about dieting, after saying she lost 16 pounds in three weeks to wear a dress once worn by Marilyn Monroe to the Met Gala.
The reality star said it had been “a huge challenge.”
“I didn’t starve, but I was very strict,” she added, explaining her diet and exercise regimen to fashion magazine Vogue.
Kardashian wore the crystal-embellished gown at a benefit kicking off the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Institute of Dress’s annual fashion show in New York.
But only for a few minutes, which lasts the pose before the press, and she changed it for a replica for the later dinner.
The original outfit was the one Monroe wore when she sang “Happy Birthday” to US President John F. Kennedy in 1962.
When she first tried it on, Kardashian said, she couldn’t close the back zipper. But she insisted on using it at the event, so she went on a diet.
And her comments on this were harshly criticized on the networks.
Riverdale actress Lili Reinhart, for example, wrote on Instagram that it’s “really wrong” to talk about going on a strict diet “when you know full well that millions of young men and women are watching you and listening to your every word,” according to the E channel!
And Nichola Ludlam-Raine of the British Dietetic Association said echoing such a regimen was ” irresponsible “.
According to the specialist, it is virtually impossible to lose so many kilos of fat in just three weeks.
In the case of Kardashian, it would have been water and glycogen, the glucose that the body does not need to generate energy and store. These, although they can be lost quickly, are recovered as soon as the normal diet is returned.
Kardashian’s comments were potentially ” dangerous, especially for vulnerable people” and sent a “completely wrong” message, he stressed.
“It was irresponsible because a lot of people will read and watch it, especially people with eating disorders or young women, thinking that it is possible or necessary to lose such an amount of weight in a relatively short time when most health experts recommend (for dieters) to lose one to two pounds a week,” Ludlam-Raine said.
“It’s not a sustainable lifestyle. Research shows that if you cut out sugars you end up craving them more, and that can lead to a cycle of restriction and binge eating,” she added.
Kardashian “said that (after putting on the dress) she was going to eat a doughnut. We want to get people out of that binge-restrict cycle and show them that they can eat what they want but in moderation, reaching whatever weight or health goal they have.” in mind,” he continued.
“Ultimately, it’s about finding the balance between healthy eating for your body and your soul, and it looks like she hasn’t done that for the three weeks leading up to the Met Gala,” she said.
“People shouldn’t follow celebrity nutrition advice,” she said.
Tom Quinn, director of external affairs for the Beat eating disorders charity, said: “Diet and weight loss advice can be very appealing to people affected by eating disorders. They can be inspired by it and carry out dangerous behaviour. related to eating disorders.
“We strongly advise anyone affected by an eating disorder or concerned about their health not to attempt to follow the diet advice they hear (from celebrities) and to contact their GP if they feel unwell.”
Kardashian has been asked for a response to the criticism.
