On January 10, The Good Place's Jameela Jamil (Tahani Al-Jamil) slammed the detox diet industry in a video that she uploaded to Twitter.
First of all, check out Jameela's tweet:
I "Contains very strong language about the detox/diet industry, and why I get so angry with the people paid to promote this crap."
In the 2:17 minute clip, she explains that she's so "relentless" about celebrities and influencers who keeps advertising detox diet products for several reasons.
According to Jameela, it isn't just because the "products don't work" or that they can be "incredibly dangerous", or how no one ever "f**king declares the side-effects".
The biggest reason, Jameela says, is because the celebrities or influencers do not actually take the products themselves.
I "It's such a lie. They don't take these products. These products cannot make you look the way these women do. You know what makes them look the way that they do? Personal trainers. Chefs. Nutritionists. Photoshop. Plastic surgeons."
I "All of which they are able to afford from the money that they receive from selling you these diet and detox products that have nothing to do with their aesthetic."
Jameela then reveals that she had taken a lot of these type of products when she was younger and that none of them had worked. Now, as a celebrity herself, she found herself being asked to advertise these products.
I "I've also been asked over the 11 years of my career, to sell a lot of these products which I've never done. People wanted me to attribute my naturally slim physique to their dodgy products and powders. Can you imagine how ridiculous that is, asking someone who's naturally slim to say that they got that way from using your product?"
She then reveals to fans a story of an offer from one of these companies.
I "Six years ago, when I gained 75 pounds [...] on medication, I was offered so much money from diet detox companies [...] to be given a secret personal trainer, and chef and nutrition plan, but not to declare that. And say [the weight loss] was just from using their product. [...] These people are such f**kers. This industry is so corrupt. It's all just a scam."
Finally, Jameela ends the video by advising fans who wants to lose weight, to contact a healthcare professional who can give them nutrition advice. She also advises fans to avoid a "quick fix", a "fad diet" or products sold by celebrities or influencers.
I "These people use plastic surgeons and don't admit to it, so you can't trust them. They're not being transparent. Nothing wrong with surgery, but you have to be transparent about it."
So, what made Jameela post a video slamming the detox diet industry?
Jameela's video comes just two days after Khloe Kardashian tweeted out an ad for Flat Tummy Co Shakes.
Check out Khloe's tweet below:
I "Ok... I’ve posted with @flattummyco’s Shakes in the past and YES, I also use a personal trainer and nutritionist, but THESE SHAKES WORK to help get your tummy back to flat. Trust me you guys… Go get 25% off the same Shakes I drink 💕"
In response, Jameela had retweeted the tweet along with this:
I "Blah blah blah eating disorder culture blah blah."
And it wasn't just Jameela who had a problem with the ad. Khloe had also received backlash from fans for promoting Flat Tummy Co Shakes. Below, are some of the public's responses:
I "It hurts me that influential people like you, who could make a massive positive difference in the world, decide to instead promote harmful products to impressionable people for a quick coin. As if you drink that stuff. You don’t care you’re hurting others as long as you get paid."
I "You literally have a personal trainer, nutritionist, and a ‘surgeon, that literally helps you transform your body... please don’t advertise this saying it works, cause you know damn well, that’s not it!"
I "Not sure why, but i expected better from you @khloekardashian And THIS at THIS time was not it."
