Recently you may have noticed some buzz about a certain weightloss plan that has been promoted here on Tumblr for quite some time now. If anyone cared to open this plan (posted HERE) you would probably think that it was made by someone who has little knowledge in nutrition. She even goes as far as to use ANOTHER BLOGGERS (Blogilates) EXERCISE VIDEOS which are FREE ON YOUTUBE.
Most of us are aware the particular blogger who endorses and sells this plan will freely admit she has absolutely no qualifications. This is clearly reflected in her responses and attitude towards others on here as well in her plan.
I urge you every single one of you: Fitblrs, those in recovery, healthy bloggers, or ANYONE who simply does not want Tumblr to enable her to continue to sell this plan to young girls who are incredibly desperate to lose weight. REPORT THIS. To TumblrStaff. Please email them at email@example.com
You can either write a personalized email expressing your thoughts, or perhaps send in this written message to them which is below. Above there is a link to her plan, which I strongly advise that you attach the screencaps in the email.
Subject: Tumblr user selling dangerous meal plans
Dear Tumblr Staff,
As a health blogger here on Tumblr it is alarming that a user on this website ( URL is: http://f0rever—in—paradise.tumblr.com) has been using Tumblr a platform to promote and sell her pro-anorexia style weightloss plans. Her audience on this site is quite large and her demographic also happens to be young teen girls across the world. Her dangerous, unhealthy plans are targeted to young girls who are desperate to lose weight. She promises darastic fat loss if her guidelines are followed, however these awful guidelines are reflective of her knowledge of nutrition. Her nutritional advice is incorrect at best, quite literally damaging at worst. The meal plans she provides are actually a “pro-ana” level of calorie and nutrient intake, but clients are told “this is a healthy amount”. Enabling vulnerable people with eating disorders to convince themselves that it is ok to starve themselves thin. She is not qualified either officially or “in principle” to give nutritional advice, therefore can not and does not hold professional indemnity insurance in the event that a victim should pursue damages when her dangerous advice destroys their health. I would suggest this may be a matter of concern to your legal department as there could be grounds for tumblr to be held liable for facilitating the spread of dangerous advice to vulnerable minors.
She is charging users money for exercise videos freely available on the net, actually someone else’s (Cassey Ho’s/Blogilates) work. This evidence can be seen in the attachments, which are screenshots of the weightloss plan she is selling. These videos are under a copyright, and she (Alexia/f0rever—in—paradise) has no permission what so ever to use these videos and sell them.
As a regular and appreciative user of your services, I hope you will take the appropriate action in regards to this matter.
Now, I would like to mention this is not a personal attack on Alexia. The purpose of this is not to bully Alexia, but to prevent her from harming any of her followers. If she is truly sincere in wanting to help people, we would applaud and support her if she were to go and study for a qualification that would allow her to coach people towards sustainable weight loss through healthy methods. This is not meant to be harassment. I do not want to see her getting more bullying/hateful messages because of this post. I know she will lash out, but of course assert that she is untouchable. But, no. It is time that WE as a community get loud about this and make it clear we do NOT support this and we are NOT okay with this.
None of us endorse PRO-ANA blogs, so why in the world would we stand by and watch her sell these starvation diets to the many users on Tumblr aspiring to get healthy? It is time we stand up. It is time we put this to a stop. Nobody would allow someone to practice as a doctor without proper schooling and education, nobody would visit a doctor who did not have degrees, this is not any different.
Reblog this if you wish, or report to Tumblr anonymously and pass on to your friends via the messaging system. Thank you.
ohh boy, lots of shit has been goin down lately cuz of this
