Weight Loss Company Targets Gabourey Sidibe

3/15/2010 12:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A weight loss company claims "Precious" star Gabourey Sidibe shouldn't be worried about her appearance ... but rather her health.

Gabourey Sidibe

AcaiSupply.com
is reaching out to the Oscar nominated star, noting that obesity is a "major epidemic" in the U.S. and they want to help her fight what they call "this terrible affliction."

The company is offering her a one year supply of the product in return for an endorsement -- provided she loses weight.

The CEO wrote a letter to Sidibe, urging her, "The only way you can reach your goal of someday winning that Oscar is by being active, fit, and most of all, healthy!"

A rep for Sidibe could not be reached for comment.

WOW, Hollywood has issues after issues after issues!! And they wonder why half the people there are underweight, bulimic, or anorexic!! Leave this girl alone!! She is happy with herself, she's done an AMAZING job in "Precious" and that's all that matters. Don't listen to these critics Gabourey! That Acai stuff does NOT work. I have friends who have tried for months and it NEVER worked! It's a complete scam!!

Despite what the government, Hollywood, or weight loss companies tell you, being large doesn't automatically make a person unhealthy and being skinny doesn't automatically make them healthy. This pretty young lady is living the way she wants to and not hurting anyone. In America people (should) have the freedom to do so.

"The only way you can reach your goal of someday winning that Oscar is by being active, fit, and most of all, healthy!"
----Acia's CEO's statement in an effort to have her pitch his product

1. Obviously he was wrong.
2. That was such a tactless pitch.
3. Why would he leak this info to the media if he was sincere in trying to "help" her?
4. I hope, if she decides she wants to publicly change her weight with a company, she'll do it with *any* company other than this one.

The true fact is that she has done something that many of us have only dreamed of, walked the red carpet, and talked to a number of actors. Now she’s slated for a cable show come on why cant people just let her be. I’m sure she’ll lose some weight which takes time to happen. And if she was thin at this time the issues would be her hair cloths or look she got a tummy growing, so really in Hollywood the worse criticism is no criticism at all.

The truth is that if she would not have been her size she would not had gotten the movie role. Then she would be a nobody. If this company cares so much about her HEALTH then the should give their produt to all the other obese nobodys in the world.

I am overwieght. Not to the same extent, but I have had diabetes since I was in my mid 20's. I would never suggest anyone go on a diet, I just worry about her health. Besides the obvious, there will be knee and hip pain from carrying the extra pounds and other unpleasant side effects that physicans don't seem to care too much about because of her size. She simply needs to learn proper portion control, exercise and the worst part give up high fat foods. Always, been my favourite. That and cola. You would be surprised how much weight you can lose giving up soda and juice.

enough to pay for their own things, can not just eating For some of those who lose weight, losing weight means you can not eat junk food, can not eat one day casual breakfast, lunch and dinner there. This life can be a very painful thing, when you can not do what you want to do the hell kind of heart is simply a man insane.

it is unfortunate that with all the resent publicity surrounding acai berry that it has brought out people trying to make a fast buck. This has many associating it with a scam. The truth is that acai offers some excellent health benefits. You can read more at
