Kim Kardashian faces backlash for unhealthy weight loss

“Kim, there are people dying!”

Kim Kardashian, 41, is facing backlash as she continues to discuss her unhealthy weight loss.

She was previously criticized for praising her loss of 16 pounds in three weeks to fit into Marilyn Monroe’s iconic bedazzled dress.

Speaking on TODAY this week, the reality TV star shared that she has now lost 21 pounds since before the Met Gala.

“I saw it as a role. I really wanted to wear this dress. It was really important to me. It actually taught me a lot about my lifestyle and my health and since then, after that, I’ve continued to eat very healthy,” the Hulu reality star explained to “Today” co-anchors Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb.

Kardashian shared that she’s happy with her health transformation, but isn’t trying to lose any more weight.

“I have more energy than ever. I left out so much sugar. I was eating a lot of junk food. I didn’t even realize it. Lots of fried foods. And I completely changed my lifestyle,” she explained.

Kardashian had previously said she had gone off sugar and carbs for “almost a month” but was criticized by some, such as actress Lili Reinhart, who claimed it is “disgusting” for celebrities to admit that they are “starving” themselves. given their great influence.

While Kardashian tries to calm her haters by comparing her transformation to the work of actors like Christian Bale and claiming she’s just started eating healthier, her critics aren’t satisfied.

“I didn’t say, ‘Hi everyone, why aren’t you going to lose this weight in a little while?'” Kardashian said. “For me it was like, ‘OK, Christian Bale can do it for a movie role and that’s acceptable.’ Even Renée Zellweger came in for a part. It’s all the same to me.”

“As someone who has had an eating disorder for most of my life and my body dysmorphia is ruining my life to this day, I think this family needs serious help,” @barbscass tweeted in response to a headline in which Kardashian urged continued weight loss.

Since then, the celebrity has continued to tout her continued weight loss and has informed fans that she has now lost a total of 21 pounds in two weeks on her restrictive diet.

“Literally? As if losing 21 pounds in two months isn’t healthy or sustainable,” she continued.

@LeciaMichelle11 wrote, “I wish people would stop reporting on Kim Kardashian’s weight loss and ignore the fact that she’s enlarged pretty much every part of her body to the point where she barely looks human.”

“I hate Kim Kardashian even more for promoting her damn restrictive diet and thinking there’s nothing wrong with it. When you look her up, the first thing that pops up is ‘weight loss diet’ and it’s terrifying,” @ddollfacedd said.

“Stop giving people like her platform and visibility to propagate such toxic lifestyles!” @castamere24 begged.

In the United States, an estimated 5-10 million women suffer from eating disorders, according to the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. The Dove Global Girls Beauty and Confidence Report found that nearly half of girls with low self-esteem say they do their best to look like the models and celebrities.

Many have taken to social media to express their disgust at Kardashian’s promotion of her unhealthy and “toxic lifestyle,” noting the influence she has on her fans.

Kardashian’s personal trainer intervened to defend his client, claiming the star’s rapid weight loss was done in a “healthy way” and Kardashian himself continues to double down on the disputed claim.

Kardashian also shared on TODAY that she was only in the iconic dress for about 3 minutes while walking on the carpet. She said she wore a robe to the Met, where she changed at the bottom and top of the stairs.

The star has been criticized for wearing the historic dress that many believe should be in a museum. Some have even claimed that Kardashian damaged the dress in the short time she wore it, escalating the anger.

Despite the flurry of criticism that continued nearly two months after the Met Gala, Kardashian continues to make progress.
