SISTAR members have been receiving criticisms for their extreme, fad diets.

Koreaboo reports that fellow member Soyou previously received criticisms for her weight loss regime confession. She admitted losing a total of 8 kilograms within a month by only eating quail eggs, low fat milk and salad.

This time, Dasom, is under fire for promoting starvation as the most effective diet. 

On July 28, the SISTAR member appeared on variety program, Vitamin, where they talked about the complications of excessive dieting. The doctor who was on the program to discuss the topic revealed that excessive dieting can lead to acute renal failure and other complications.

Dasom revealed that she has tried a variety of diet which included herbal medicines, shakes, detoxes and all.

She revealed that she also tried starving herself and confessed that, “In order to lose weight in a short period of time, starvation is the most effective.” 

However, she also stated that she won’t recommend such drastic method as it also causes the hardest yoyo phenomenon.

The confession earned a lot of worrying responses as netizens try to figure the need to drastically lose weight in the entertainment industry, leaving the artists themselves to live without the joy of eating.
