Kail Lowry’s weight loss has been closely followed by fans. The reality show star has been working hard at getting in shape, doing things like eating healthier and working out. However, that isn’t all that she is doing! While out in California to attend the Grammys, Kail revealed that she is using a waist trainer.
Waist trainers are typically used by women after having a baby as a way to get their waist back in shape. While losing weight after having a baby can be troublesome for some women, Kail Lowry has been working hard to get fit after giving birth to son Lincoln in 2013. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Kail has been open about her weight loss journey and revealed that the hardest part is learning to eat better.
“First week of October on the left and last week on the right. Nothing is harder than getting my eating habits down. It’s been a long and slow process. Still trying to kick my addiction to food. But working on it and working out, nonetheless.”
Aside from working out, Kail Lowry revealed that she is also using a waist trainer. She posted a photo of herself using a waist shaper on Instagram along with a caption.
“Wearing my favorite waist shaper from @waistedbykeke!! Loving my results so far ❤ Thanks a lot @waistedbykeke!! Use code “kail10″ to receive 10% off your purchase #waistedbykeke”
Other celebrities who use or have used waist shapers include Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, and Jessica Alba. Needless to say, they are incredibly popular, but are they safe? Women’s Health spoke to Mary Jane Minkin, M.D. who stressed the possible damages from using waist shapers.
“Medically, it doesn’t make sense that cinching your waist tightly will make it permanently smaller. Once you take the garment off, your body will return to its usual shape. It’s also uncomfortable, restricts your movements, and if you wear it really tight, it can even make it difficult to breathe and theoretically could cause rib damage.”
Despite the controversy surrounding waist trainers, there are celebrities who swear by them. While it is unclear how often Kail Lowry uses the waist trainer, the fact that she is also eating healthy and working out suggests she isn’t solely depending on the waist trainer to do the work, which is what some people tend to do.
Kail Lowry’s weight loss journey will likely be chronicled on the new season of Teen Mom 2, along with her busy life, which includes going to school and raising two sons.
