Doing an exercise to give you a certain aesthetic is not healthy if you ignore diet, sleep, drinking water, and all the other factors that contribute to your health.

Sohee continues, “This person is promoting this exercise as what to do if you want to get thin. They also have other posts where they say several times,” Exercise for an hour a day and eat what you want “Which, of course, is completely wrong and that kind of advice is exactly what gets people in big trouble when they run, then eat their faces off and end up gaining a lot of weight.”

She warns of the psychological dangers of dieting. “We’re constantly bombarded with ads selling us unrealistic expectations, ‘quick fixes’ and easy ways out,” she tells Insider. “At a time when we publish fake news, it can be pretty amazing that certain content even meets advertising standards. Unfortunately, the more people get involved, the greater the reach.”
