Jameela Jamil's Quotes About Detox Tea on The Daily Show

Jameela Jamil's Impassioned Interview About Diet Culture Is a Must-See For Anyone on Instagram

After speaking out against harmful diet products for years, Jameela Jamil has successfully advocated for more regulation and is now closer to her goal of eradication. A bit of backstory: the star of The Good Place recently played a big role in getting Instagram to enforce restrictions that prevent minors from seeing sponsored content about cosmetic surgery procedures, detox teas, and the like. In an appearance on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, Jameela said she's just getting started.

"This is just the start of what I'm doing. Next I'm moving on to legislation because we need to get this stuff off the market and away from children," she said. Speaking to her own experience with eating disorders as a teenager, Jameela added, "I'm someone who took these products, and I will never get my full health back, and so I'm damned if this is going to happen again 20 years later."

"This is just the start of what I'm doing."

Though she has been considered a leader in body positivity since launching her I Weigh movement in 2018, Jameela feels more comfortable using the terms "body liberation" and "body neutrality." She said, "I believe in just not thinking about your body, and I have the luxury of being able to do that because I'm not being constantly persecuted for my size."

"I just manage to get more things done in my day when I'm not thinking about my figure," she added. "I can't stand in front of a mirror and say, 'I love my thighs. I love my cellulite.' I can just not think about them, and think about my bank account and orgasms." Watch her impassioned interview above.
