Singer and model Michelle Heaton has lashed out at celebrity yo-yo dieters claiming that they purposefully put on a large amount of weight to be able to lose it and then sell fitness DVD’s.
It is not uncommon for celebrities to launch themselves back into the limelight after being away from the public eye for some time through showing off their dramatic weight loss results.
The more cynical out there may have questioned just how genuine the weight loss had been in the first place but now Michelle Heaton has spoken out about stars who release DVDs to promote weight loss and the yo-yo diets that she fells goes along with this.
According to a report in the Mirror, Michelle Heaton has hit out at ‘yo yo’ celebrities who “deliberately” put on weight – only to lose it again, before releasing fitness DVDs.
Michelle Heaton took to the very public forum of Twitter to vent her rage about the celebrity weight loss and fitness DVDs she considers to be a scam.
On Twitter, Michelle wrote: “If I see one more ‘celeb’ ‘deliberately’ put weight on .. Just to loose it ‘overnight’ to sell ‘weight loss’ DVDs I may have to scream! …
“… Weigh loss is not overnight & neither is putting it on! Can we promote healthy weight loss people ? #justsaying #rantover and breath! X.”
The message left many people speculating about just who Michelle Heaton could have been referring to but while everyone was keen to know who had sparked the rant, Michelle Heaton kept tight lipped and failed to point the finger at any one star in particular.
On Twitter she added: “Fyi – thoughts weren’t about any1 in particular I promise, no pointing fingers. It’s a general thought that’s been boiling away. #peace&love.”
If anyone is trying to narrow down who Michelle Heaton may have been talking about it will be a tricky job as celebrity weight loss DVDs have been a staple from reality stars, soap stars and everyone in between for years with all claiming to be able to help people to drop the pounds and look amazing in only a few weeks if they buy the DVD.
Losing weight should be a long term aim and it is not recommended that anyone attempts to lose a large amount of weight in a short space of time as not only is this not healthy for your body, it can also be more difficult to keep the weight off in the long run.
