After enduring harsh criticism from the media about her curvier than usual figure, Jessica Simpson appeared on the cover of OK! magazine with the headline "I Will Lose 20 Lbs in 8 Weeks!" The mag is calling it her "revenge diet" against her body critics and sources said that it will be easier for Jessica to achieve her goal when her stressful tour has ended.
It's important for us to feel good about ourselves no matter what other people are saying, but I can understand how tough criticism would get under someone's skin to the point of wanting some kind of "revenge." Hopefully, Jessica's motivation is something more than wanting to slim down for critics. I have heard of revenge diets, but generally the goal is to get revenge on an ex-boyfriend rather than the media at large. I have seen video chronicling muscular abs inspired by a bad breakup, so I am wondering . . .
