Kimora Lee Simmons is upset over the recent story about howÂ exactlyÂ she lost 25 pounds. Yesterday, PopEater reported that Kimora said she lost the weight by …starving herself!
“I have shed the fat by not eating,” Kimora half-jokingly tells me. “But I don’t like to tell the kids that so they think they shouldn’t eat. No, I watch my portions, and I eat leaner proteins and vegetables and stuff like that.”
“So I woke up this morning and ordered breakfast at 4 AM. I had egg whites scrambled, spinach, turkey bacon and a glass of orange juice,” she said, noting she skipped lunch. “The reason I had such a big breakfast is because I hadn’t eaten in two days. I’ve had fruit, I’ve had a smoothie, I’ve had a protein bar, but it’s not like I’ve had Doritos.”
Kimora later went to her website and called the way the story was portrayed ‘irresponsible’!!
I just wanted to take a moment to address a story about my recent weight loss that began circulating today. This story led people to believe that I shed 25 lbs by not eating, which is completely ridiculous. I am a mother of three young children, two of whom are girls and Iâ€™m trying to raise them with a healthy body image. Itâ€™s taken me almost a year to lose close to 25 lbs and I did it through healthy diet and exercise. So yes, Iâ€™m a bit smaller, but still curvy and 100% healthy and proud of my body and the time it has taken me to undergo this personal journey for myself. Iâ€™m not one of those â€œsuperstar momsâ€ who lost all their baby weight in a week. So, yes, Iâ€™m upset about the innuendo because I just canâ€™t win.Â In the past year there have been numerous rumors about my weight â€” first I was attacked for being a size 10, now Iâ€™m anorexic? Iâ€™m a real woman and I represent real women. I believe that people are beautiful at any size, color or weight. The way this article was promoted is unfortunate â€” what a silly way to sensationalize a story, especially when you know young people will be reading it. There must be more accountability in reporting, especially considering the far reaching impact on girls and young women who are exposed to this kind of misleading information on a daily basis. What kind of example is that setting for them?
Personally,Â I think Kimora wasÂ jokingÂ when she said she starved herself…it even says that in the interview. If you have ever seen Kimora’s show, Kimora: Life in the Fab Lane you will know that she is always silly and funny!!
