“Please don’t eat as little as 1200 calories guys,” wrote one TikTok user while another said, “omg 1200 is so low!!”
One person on Twitter wrote: ‘I have a degree in food science. 1200 – 1400 calories is the recommended amount for children from 2 to 3 years, you starve yourself.’
Renowned author and journalist Ernest Owens wrote on Twitter: “Fun but important facts: ‘Relationship weight’ isn’t real – but correlating comfort and love with weight gain as if it were a problem is fatphobic AF. Eating 1,200 calories a day after gaining 15 pounds says a lot about Lori Harvey and society’s fear of fat. All sad.’
