This week, Khloe Kardashian came under fire for promoting a weight-loss shake after saying she didn't believe in crash diets – and Jameela Jamil had quite a lot to say about celebs putting their names to diet detox products. 

The actress, who has advocated a positive body image and self-worth through her project I Weigh, took to Twitter to share her thoughts on the prolific manner in which celebrities endorse these teas and shakes on social media. 

She mentioned Crdi B in her rant – which got the attention of the rap queen. 

'They got Cardi B on the laxative nonsense ‘detox’ tea' Jameela wrote. 

'GOD I hope all these celebrities all shit their pants in public the way the poor women who buy this nonsense upon their recommendation do.'

Cardi had a response for Jameela, saying: 'I will never shit my pants cause there’s public restrooms everywhere… Ooh and bushes.'

Jameela's Twitter thread continued: 'If you want to 'curb your appetite' eat some damn green vegetables or have some nutritious natural vegetable soup. You need fiber! Not something that honestly just makes you have diarrhoea the day you take it and constipates you in the long run…'

'Generally just don’t ever take diet advice from women who know nothing about nutrition/basic advertising ethics.'

She then turned her attention to rapper Iggy Azalea, in a post that some have seen as being 'plastic surgery shaming.' 

'When will these women who are covered in plastic surgery stop telling their followers to drink a laxative to look like them? It’s so embarrassing and it’s so encouraging of eating disordered behaviour,' Jameela wrote.

Over on Instagram, Jameela penned an open letter to celebrities like Blac Chyna, Khloe Kardashian, Kylie Jenner and Amber Rose who flog the weight-loss products.

'I am so sick of the lies. I was so riddled with eating disorders when I was young. I listened to irresponsible celebrities and bought all these bad products and followed their TERRIBLE and toxic diet tips for how they maintained the tiny weight they were… and I fucked up my metabolism and digestive system for life.'

'I damaged my fertility, I was consumed and mentally ill.

'I was obsessed and didn’t eat a meal for over three years as a growing teen. I am not going to stop until we teach people to be better allies to women and stop selling this not at all medically sound shit and rhetoric to us.'

Emmy Rossum posted a bada** selfie on her Instagram, empowering women everywhere to focus on what really matters.

She officially joined the “I Weigh” movement, originally started by Jameela Jamil after a photo of the Kardashians was released with their weight plastered across their bodies.

The photo then asked people if Kim really looked like she weighed 56kg and asked to comment “which weight are you?!?” 

Ya, we can't believe that happened either.

Jameela expressed her disgust at how women were being branded by their body size, replacing their identity with the number on a scale.

The Instagram influencer called this distorted view “toxic nonsense” and responded with a selfie, filled with descriptions of who she truly is:

“Lovely Relationship,” “Great Friends,” and “I laugh everyday” flood the background of her photo.

The Good Place actress gave the finger to judgemental haters with the words “F****** KG” in huge letters across the picture’s bottom.

Many women have been inspired by Jameela’s message and have proudly posted similar “I Weigh” photos.

The body celebration movement is exactly the type of positivity we need in our lives, reminding us that we are so much more than what the world labels us as.

Shameless actress Emmy Rossum wanted to be a part of Jameela’s movement as well.

“During my life the scale has told me that I’ve gained and lost […] in the range of 20 pounds. But that piece of metal doesn’t really know.

“Here is what I ACTUALLY WEIGH.” Emmy posted a selfie on her story labelled with facts about who she identifies as.

“Jewish and Proud,” “Drive,” “Animal Rescuer,” “100+ hours of television,” “One finished screenplay,” and “Countless hours of therapy” is splayed across her selfie.

The young star aims to encourage girls everywhere with Jameela’s message.

“So join me in this. Show people what you are actually made of,” Emmy writes.

“Because you are so much more than a f****** number.”

If you want to join Emmy and Jameela in this girl power movement, post a similar selfie and caption it with all the characteristics that truly comprise who you are.

Despite the rise of the body positivity community, body shaming still happens on the regular. 

While no one is immune to the pressures of societal standards, celebrities seem to get the worst of it. 

With the Kardashians dominating the headlines, social feeds and style pages of every platform internationally, they face a perpetual onslaught of body scrutiny. 

Not one to stand back and let s*it go by unmentioned, Jameela Jamil defended the Kardashian recently, after she came across a post on Instagram which outlined each of the KUWTK star's weights. 

Kim in particular was singled out in the post, which asked fans to comment their weights and to decided whether Kim looked as heavy as she was. 

Taking to Twitter, Jameela slated the post for promoting weight value and obsession, and highlighted areas of her life which were far more valid than her weight. 

'I weigh: Lovely relationship. Great friends. I laugh everyday. I love my job. I speak out for women's rights. I like my bingo wings.' 

'I like myself in spite of EVERYTHING I've been taught by the media to hate about myself.' 

Jameela began to receive similar manifestos from women around the world, and has set up a body positivity community iof her own in response. 

 

A post shared by I Weigh (@i_weigh) on

Called @i_weigh, the Instagram page features women of all types sharing what is important about them – never mind anyone's weight. 

The posts are hugely empowering, and act as a reminder that all women, including celebrities, are far more than their scale reading. 

'I’m fucking tired of seeing women just ignore what’s amazing about them and their lives and their achievements, just because they don’t have a bloody thigh gap,' Jameela wrote.' 

This was the reminder we all needed today about loving ourselves a little more and never buying in to scathing critiques of our own bodies and the bodies of others.

Radio 1 DJ and TV presenter Jameela Jamil has announced she is single again.

The star revealed that she had parted ways with the man she described as her "first love," saying, "It was amicable. We parted with all the love in the world."

Jameela always stayed extremely tight-lipped about her relationship, never revealing her boyfriend's name in interviews or on social media.

Nevertheless the pair seemed very serious and had been a long-term couple.

Speaking about how she is coping with the split, Jameela told The Sun that she plans to spend some time travelling the world. "I'm just getting on with it," she said. 

"I'm going to go travelling all over the place, so I don't have time for a boyfriend. I want to go while I've got no responsibilities."

What does she have in mind for the trip? "It's sort of like Eat, Pray, Love but more like Eat, Eat, Love," said the presenter. Sounds like our kind of holiday!
