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
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.

Yes, they are trying to cash in on her, but the honest truth is, if she continues being at this weight, she is not long for this world

If this young woman wants to lose weight she will and she doesn't need fad, fake, and deceptive diets and products to do it. A lot of that stuff does not work. IF SHE WANTS TO, the best thing for her to do is get a good doctor, trainer, and nutritionalist. Working together with them she can lose weight the right way. Being obese is not healthy, but she must want to lose weight in order for the weight loss process to be effective. It isn't just about pills, diets, etc. It's getting the mentality right and dealing with people who know what they are doing.

She needs a dietician and once she gets at a healthy weight hire a personal trainer. She doesn't need to be involved in a for profit weight loss program. They are the worst.

No one is saying it is okay to be fat. It does causes health problems as she gets older and even now. But there are skinny people who has just as many health problems too. Just because someone looks healthy doesnt mean they are healthy. Skinny people and people who works out in gyms dies every day from health problems. We all are always lacking something nutritionist in our bodies daily. Rather its proteins or lack of vitamins. All of us has some kind of issues with our health. If she walked out on the stage skinny, Howard Sterns and his overweight black girl friend would had not attacked Gabby so viciously. Contrary, white women would get attack if they were fat like Gabby because white people feels that being skinny is glamourous for them. Blacks has always been thicker than white women. So even when Gabby looses her weight she wont be skinny, skinny.

She is grossly overweight. Disgusting to look at it and I can't figure out why she would get a part in a movie. I am a hot woman and am not in the movies. This just tells me if I wanted to I could be in a movie. She is FAT.

Ummmm...I am pretty sure you have to be more than just "hot" to get a part in a movie. I will admit she is overweight, but did you ever start to think that maybe you are just as disgusting for your attitude? Who really goes around calling themselves hot anyway? I will tell you who...people who aren't and need to boost their own self-confidence by shooting down others. You go ahead and live in your own little world Harley. No one else wants to be there with ya.

There is nothing wrong with being chubby, but she is morbidly obese a condition that carries many risks such as heart disease, diabetes, and stroke to name a few. If she wants to be around long enough to see her career continue to flourish, then she should seriously consider losing some weight.

WTF leave her alone. I love this bitch. Maybe she should lose some weight, but no need to be mean.

If Gaborney WANTED to lose the weight...she would have already done it by now...apparently she's happy just the way she is.

Just because Acai offer's a crap load of Antioxidants, doesn't mean that you lose weight. A lifestyle change needs to occur. This girl is headed down a Diabetes and Heart Disease life ending path if she doesn't change very soon. And because she is Black, diabetes is very common with women her size. I pray she get's help soon. She seems like a sweetheart.

A year's supply of food for a normal person should take her a week to consume.

If every stop thinking the only way you can be beautiful is if you are skinny, the world would be a better place. Just because you are a size 2,doesn't mean you are healthy (bulimia, anorexia) to name a few. Skinny people die just like fat people, if God wanted everyone to look the same, he would have made us all alike. Gabby seems to be a beautiful person, and if critics would take the time to see this, they may be better off. Shame on the people who are trying to hurt her with all the negative comments. Get a life.
