Kim Kardashian deletes post promoting appetite suppressing lollipops after wave of backlash

"However, this family makes me feel actual despair over what women are reduced to".

A lollipop that reduces your appetite? I am honestly disgusted by this. Always seek the advice of a physician or other qualified health provider for any questions you may have regarding a medical condition, or before embarking on any diet, exercise, or wellness program.

If you're struggling with overeating or just aren't feeling full after you eat, Brooking recommends you take a closer look at your diet.

We literally need food as fuel.

Kardashian West, 37, has been a spokeswoman for Flat Tummy Co. for months and has gushed online at least twice about the company's meal replacement program.

Kardashian has since deleted the post, likely as a result of the fierce backlash it stirred up across social media platforms.

This product is endorsing eating disorders. "Drugs? Yes I get influencers get paid for adverts, but surely it's better to be ethical about what your paid to post about?" another woman tweeted. This is exactly the type of mindset this is promoting. Lots of people also highlighted the fact that the star's fan base consists of thousands of young women, and accused her of glamourising disordered eating and reinforcing impossible beauty standards.

Coli update: You can now safely eat romaine again
Health officials say there is a lag time of two to three weeks between when someone falls ill and when it's reported to the CDC. Iowa, Nebraska, and OR have now joined the list of states reporting E. coli cases linked to romaine lettuce.

North Korea Begins Dismantling Nuclear Test Site
It suggested the incident "may" have been the reason for Kim's announcement of a suspension in testing. The site has been used for each of North Korea's six underground nuclear test explosions.

Florida man killed in first recorded e-cig explosion death
A report by the US Fire Administration said more than 195 electronic cigarettes exploded or caught fire between 2009 and 2016. A 38-year-old man in Florida was killed in what appears to be the first death caused by an e-cigarette explosion.

The promotion has been slammed on social media, as many feel that the product is encouraging restrictive eating. Your fans are going to be seeing this and thinking that this is how to get your body. But after her latest sponsored post, many followers thought she'd gone too far.

Beth Warren, R.D., founder of Beth Warren Nutrition and author of Secrets of a Kosher Girldisagrees: "I'm always strongly hesitant to recommend supplements of this kind which do not have credible evidence to support its effects, where side effects or interactions with various medical conditions and medications aren't clearly identified and publicized".

This issue hits home for Jamil, who' started the "I Weigh" campaign on Instagram to tackle unhealthy obsessions with body image. That is so important to me.

'If they're literally unreal then they don't exist'.

While the photo seems innocuous enough-a zoomed in shot of Kardashian staring into the camera while sucking on a red lollipop-the caption really got fans fired up. Don't be influenced by other people who have their own insecurities and want to make money from yours. You are setting the worst example to girls all over the world.

Though the post is now long gone, a similar one, which you can see below, remains on Kardashian West's Instagram Stories.
