The Kardashian’s rise to fame has been problematic for a number of reasons since they exploded onto the scene in 2007 after Keeping Up With The Kardashians revolutionized reality television.
For example, many parents question whether Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, Kendall, and Kylie are good influences on their young, impressionable children.
But it doesn’t seem to matter how outrageously they behave, because every new scandal that surrounds the reality star clan is easily forgotten thanks to a strategically scheduled PR stunt and thus, the Kardashian girls continue their reign over the world.
Although, Kim’s latest incident, involving appetite suppressing lollipops, may finally be the breaking point.
Fans were rightly outraged about her promotion of the sweet treats and as a result, the 37-year-old mom-of-three has had to do some serious damage control.
But this blunder has left many wondering just how educated the Kardashian sisters are when it comes to dieting. Sure, they all look fantastic, but can we really trust them to tell us what to/not to put in our bodies?
1. Suck on belly flattening lollypops
Things turned pretty sour for Kim earlier this month when she promoted an appetite suppressing lollipop on Instagram. With 111 million followers, Kim was no doubt paid a small fortune to advertise the controversial sweet – but did she let the payment cloud her judgment?
Kim called the lollipop and its affects “literally unreal” in the post, which has since been deleted. But for experts, it is Kim’s lack of knowledge about the product which is the most unreal thing.
According to weight loss specialist Dr. Charlie Seltzer, there is little evidence to support that these lollipops even have a benefit.
Talking to Cosmpolitan, he cited a 28-day study of 20 adults which was conducted earlier this year. It found that there were no significant differences in food cravings, fullness, or hunger among subjects who took pills supplemented with the “diet suppressing” ingredient.
