Keilan, I'm on her email list and got this clip that way. I don't know why it's unlisted. (Unless it's the language?) She has a similar (but much longer) clip on her Facebook page.

Kittybug, I think the book is about her eating method.

Hello, Chalene, you are in Show Business! Appearance is everything. Especially in the fitness industry. One can go on all day about how unfair it is.

This video is more about her insecurities than the cruelty of producers. If she felt demeaned, she should have refused the job.

Is she not with Beachbody anymore? I feel like I missed something.

Which makes me wonder if she is not, who owns the rights to all her programs?

It seems like this video was referencing when she shot Piyo. I noticed she was visibly thinner in that series.

My thoughts exactly! If it was so horrible, why not walk away? The answer, money talks, she didn't walk. What century are we in? This waiting until you have money and then speaking doesn't work with me.

I agree with what you wrote. Again, the weird part to me was discussing it with her husband. Not cool.

Yes, that is very slimy!

I have read a few articles about how Chris Pratt chose to lose weight for "Guardians of the Galaxy." The director thought he was perfect for the role and that he would cast him anyway, but suggested maybe he could lose a few pounds. So, Chris went on a grueling regimen to go from cuddly to studly. That was his choice.



He then was offered more roles, like reboots of the "Jurassic Park" franchise. That is the way of show biz. You have to decide whether to go for it, or walk away. But, don't blame others for your choices.

Oh, here is Chalene way back in the day:

I really like Chalene and all of her programs, but that was such a BORING video I had a hard time getting through the nine+ minutes of it. Didn't she used to be a motivational speaker? What happened?

After viewing her video and that Brittany Dawn, my question is: why do fitness influencers have to wear so much mascara? Doesn't it hurt when you sweat?
