Raven-Symoné’s weight loss journey isn’t getting the response she thought it would.
On Instagram Live, the “Cheetah Girls” alum revealed that she has lost 28 pounds.
The actress, 35, called her weight loss a “pounds down journey.”
“Pounds down, pounds down. Check out the chin,” she said in the video. “If y’all watch ‘Raven’s Home’ literally right now, and then come on this live and see this joint, I got a whole different face going on. It’s a whole pounds down journey.”
Raven, though, gave her fans pause when she revealed that she’s taking a fairly drastic measure to drop more weight.
“Right now I’m doing a 48-hour fast,” she said, “so we’re on that journey right now.”
Many of Raven’s 2.4 million Instagram followers vented at her decision to shun food for two days, using words such as “triggering” and “cringe.”
“Gonna have to unfollow for the weight loss plan… I am in eating disorder recovery, and it’s triggering and sad to watch people buy into diet culture,” one person commented. “Hope you find sustainable living outside of this ‘pounds down’ mentality.”
Another said, “Diet culture has you by the neck, and instead of accepting it, you should fight back. You’re quite literally starving yourself to lose weight and that is just so sad. You don’t need to resort to such extremities in order to fit society’s… perception of beauty. Eat. Enjoy your life.”
