"You Deserve to Eat": Nonprofit Beauty Redefined Criticize Kim Kardashian for Promoting Appetite Suppressant Lollipops


“You deserve to know your body is not defined by its size and that you are not defined by your body," LDS Beauty Redefined founders posted on Instagram in response to Kim Kardashian's post promoting appetite suppressant lollipops, "You deserve to eat." 

Beauty Redefined, a nonprofit that teaches positive body image, posted on an Instagram about Kim Kardashian’s recent decision to promote “Appetite Suppressant Lollipops” from the company Flat Tummy Co.

Kardashian called the pops “literally unreal” in her Instagram post.

In a post labeled as an ad, Kardashian wrote, “You guys … @flattummyco just dropped a new product. They’re Appetite Suppressant Lollipops and they’re literally unreal. They’re giving the first 500 people on their website 15% OFF so if you want to get your hands on some … you need to do it quick!”

You know what’s “literally unreal?” That Kim K would promote disordered eating to her millions of mostly young girl fans. ✖️You deserve to know your body is not defined by its size and that you are not defined by your body. ✖️You deserve to eat. In fact, fighting and suppressing your appetite actually destroys your ability to know when you are hungry or full and starts the binge-and-restrict cycle for millions of women (and men) across the world. ✖️Thanks to @laurathomasphd and her 🔥 rant for bringing this to our attention!
