Curation piece: Khloe Kardashian’s 40 pound weight loss: an amazing achievement? Or negative influence?

Reality TV, Khloe Kardashian, reportedly lost a whopping 40 pounds. She claims it’s all down to an organic and dairy-free diet, a fat-burning cardio exercise plan, weight training and her beloved abosu ball.

What do her fans have to say about her rapid weight loss? 



Girls on Twitter seem to be obsessing over her change. But is Khloe’s extreme weight loss really a good influence on her fans? It appears that the youngest Kardashian sister often posts photos of her new body on Instagram promoting diets and rigorous exercise.

Many young girls look up to the Kardashians wishing that their bodies looked more like theirs. But do they really look like their photos? Fashion student Milly Dexter, claims that “The Kardashians are over-rated. We all know that their bodies don’t really look like that. They use photoshop and promote unrealistic ideas of the perfect body. That’s what so unhealthy about them.”

Recently, Khloe got caught photoshopping an Instagram image after a fan saw a curved line in the door by her right leg, suggesting that she had photoshopped one or maybe even both her legs.

Not only have the Kardashians been caught photoshopping but Khloe and her sisters have all been promoting waist-training and she claims “it’s my secret weapon!” But is the phenomenon really good for you? Doctors have suggested that it increases acid reflux, compresses your organs and squeezes your ribs.

Unfortunately, we should not always believe what we see online. It’s not because a celebrity is promoting a diet or a new weight loss technique that it is necessarily healthy for you. Nowadays with technology, a person can change their appearance completely and not to mention their body shape. You are all beautiful as you are. Don’t strive for somebody else’s beauty or their body! You can only ever be yourself, so don’t ever try and be somebody you ‘re not.
