The sale of slim tea and waist trainers have been on the rise in recent days as women of today chase body goals for the gram to boost their self-esteem. Women who are scared to go under the knife have resorted to the use of slim tea and waist trainers in a bid to lose weight.
Actress Yvonne Nelson in an earlier post, kicked against the above methods, advising females not to fall for slim tea and waist trainer scams as a means to achieve a banging body or boost their self-esteem.
Yvonne disclosed this in a Twitter post. She noted that it is only a surgical doctor or a girl’s mother who can give her that flat tummy or desired banging body, not the so-called slim tea and waist trainer vendors.
According to the mother of one, if your banging body is not from a doctor or your mother, the only place you can get it is from the gym.
She tweeted, “Before we go to church, lemme say this…baby gyal, no slimming tea/waist trainer is gonna give you no TAPOLI / snatched body, stop letting these companies/influencers fool you.Two people, a doctor or your mum and one place, the gym can give you that body”.
It’s unclear what influenced Yvonne Nelson’s post but it didn’t sit well with some people, one of which is Uriel Oputa, who promotes waist trainers.
Uriel reacted to Yvonne’s post with a rather lengthy post, insisting that waist trainers work and the slim tea from the brand she represents works too. She also disclosed that she has never been under the knife and it’s waist trainers with a combination of work out and diets that has helped maintain her body.
