In February 2012, British songstress Adele Adkins was the recipient of half a dozen U.S. Grammy awards, and a storm of accolades and praise. But there was one wet blanket: House of Chanel fashion designer Karl Largerfeld stated that though Adele has “a beautiful face and a divine voice…she is a little too fat.”
The subsequent outrage led Largerfeld to both apologizing swiftly and revealing that he himself had undertaken a 66-pound (30-kilogram) weight loss, so he understands “how it feels when the press is mean to you in regards to your appearance.” Meanwhile, a concert contract “rider” of Adele’s was released online, revealing that she requests having candy bars, red wine, two six-packs of beer nearby when she performs. And irregardless having had throat surgery, she continues to smoke cigarettes.
Adele stated, “I’ve never wanted to look like the models on the covers of magazines…I represent the majority of women and I’m very proud of that.”
The next month, “Raging” Robert Gibbs of the United States found himself uncertain if he was going to get to have a life. Just before his twenty-third birthday, he made a YouTube video requesting weight loss help with his 600-pound (272-kilo) weight condition. He said he realized that there would be those who would “make fun” of him, and he was not incorrect – one responder suggested that Gibbs was a caused by political overkill and should be marooned in a tent full of vegetables. But fortunately, Gibbs has ended up being almost as admired as Adele!
Gibbs’ video have surpassed a million, and he’s received an avalanche of messages of encouragement ranging from fellow overweight people to a two-year-old’s “You can do it. Don’t give up…Peace out, dude!” More noteworthy, Gibbs specifically remarked that he was in need of not only physical and nutritional weight loss advice, but psychological, too. He appears to grasp that he cannot hope to recover by diet and exercise only, and that he needs to disarm the emotional aspects involved in his eating compulsion. Well, Gibbs has been contacted by a local news film crew and representatives of The Biggest Loser, Extreme Makeover Weight Loss Edition, and The Dr. Phil show!
