FAT GIRL GONE SKINNY: Are celebrities sending the wrong message?

( - In the January 2016 edition of CAKE Magazine, there is an article entitled, "FAT GIRL GONE SKINNY" in which the issue of weight is discussed. While it's perfectly fine for celebrities to discuss their journey, address their need to get healthier and share their story with their fans, some are wondering if their books come across as a low-key way to fat shame women who cannot afford fancy weight loss options.

In a culture that worships skinny, Khloe is trying to stop the negative reactions to her new book in which some critics say she is telling women that the only way to be strong and pretty is to be skinny.

"For the love of God, it's a naked woman on a book cover. We get that she's not the smarter Kardashian, but she doesn't have to subject our children to her family's love of porn and nudity."


Like Shonda Rhimes, who says she decided to lose weight because she could no longer sit in first class, Khloe Kardashian, who said she was hurt by being called "the fat sister," is already taking heat from many including parents who said she paid to keep the "PARENTAL ADVISORY" sticker off her book. While the stars both look great and seem happy, many worry that without the money to spend on nips, tucks, trainers they are setting an unrealistic expectation for their fans.

Khloe recently fired back saying, "I'm encouraging women to be healthy, not skinny." But her photos, social media posts and gym obsession point to anything but body positivity.

Stay tuned to the full article in the January 2016 edition of CAKE Magazine.
