Kim Kardashian was hit with major backlash by furious fans after she shamelessly promoted appetite suppressant lollipops on social media. The Good Place actress Jameela Jamil even called the reality star a "terrible and toxic influence on young girls" for encouraging dieting and unhealthy body standards.
Now, RadarOnline.com can reveal that the lollipops have not been evaluated or approved by the Food & Drug Administration!
"The statements on the site have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration," Flat Tummy Co admits of its suckers.
Charlene Ciardiello, one of the nation’s leading nutritionists, told Radar, “Kim should be ashamed to promote a product that claims to reduce weight and cause a flat tummy! The human body was meant to thrive and not survive by sucking on a lollipop."
Instead Ciardiello recommended eating frequently to keep hunger at bay.
"Instead of taking appetite suppressants, try eating a clean meal every two to three hours to stabilize blood sugar and appetite,” the pro, who has collaborated with NFL player Keith Mitchell on a natural cleanse to aid in weight loss, told Radar.
As Radar previously reported, critics claimed Kardashian's ad could cause dangerous behavior in her impressionable young fans.
“Had an eating disorder for 14 years. If I had seen this ad as a teenager, I would have been running for this product. Despicable,” one Twitter user said in support of Jamil.
Though Kardashian has taken down a tweet promoting the product, she still has the ad up on her Instagram story.
