Model and influencer Lori Harvey has sparked a bitterly divided debate after discussing her diet and workout regimens.
Harvey, who is dating actor Michael B. Jordan, revealed in a TikTok that she gained 15 pounds of "relationship weight" after getting together with the star.
Harvey called the experience "horrible" while detailing the extreme measures she went to in order to shed the weight, leading many to criticize her for promoting toxic diet culture and body standards.

In her video, Harvey addressed fans who have been begging to know how she dropped the 15 pounds she gained.
“Everybody’s been asking like what it is I specifically did to get my body to this point."
"So when Mike and I got together, I gained like 15 pounds of relationship weight and it was horrible, none of my clothes fit, it was just not OK."
Harvey then detailed the extreme cardio and pilates-based workout regimen she used to drop the weight.
"...I was working out like five, six times a week, and I would even do, for the first month and a half, I would even do two-a-days..."
"...[Cardio] is how you drop. Pilates alone is not going to make you lose weight."
"It’s just going to give you long, lean muscles. So yeah, that’s how I did it.”
Harvey also discussed the exceptionally limited diet she followed, eating just 1,200 calories a day and avoiding carbs.
On social media, Harvey's video sparked a vigorous debate.
Many found her regime extreme, dangerous and fatphobic, and chided the star for promoting it to impressionable people without her access to professional guidance.
But others found the uproar rather ridiculous and defended Harvey.
The furor over Harvey's diet and exercise practices comes after her appearance at the 2022 Met Gala, where her physique was praised in a red carpet interview in which she attributed her washboard abs to her pilates regimen.
