I'm daring to say i bet a lot of the people commenting on Dr. Dray;s apperance are themselves overweight or out of shape.


I’m surprised it took so long for this comment to appear. I don’t have to be anorexic or overweight to see that this doesn’t look healthy nor does her skin look vibrant. This is on her Facebook page. Is this a before picture?

Of course, it doesn’t mean her medical advice isn’t sound but Nutrition and enough healthy fat is important for skin. 

I’m 5’4 and am 107 pounds. I could stand to gain five pounds myself.

I’ve watched some of this doctor’s videos and I’ve learned a lot about various skin conditions such as acne, melasma, eczema, psoriasis, etc.  Her suggestion of religious use of sunscreen is spot on as sun exposure is the #1 cause of skin cancer.   I appreciate the OP for sharing this info.  She appears lovely to me inside and out and I plan to continue to follow her videos.  Thanks you, Texasmouse for your positive and helpful comments on this thread.

We don't even know if she is suffering from anorexia. Maybe everyone in her family looks like she does. But I don't want to follow her advice because I don't think she has beautiful skin.

Her mom is pretty thin has more weight on her because she is older but you can tell they have the same build.

I agree. And start a thread on all the overweight hosts and models and watch it get shut down. It’s ok to crucify a skinny person yet highly insensitive and rude to comment on the overweight.

You're assuming A LOT. For those of us commenting about her appearance....it's because she looks so unhealthy....extremely unhealthy. Looking at the photo listed above, I'd think she was recovering from an issue. 

 

I don't understand this thread. Maybe it's a friend of Dray's trying to up her Ytube views.

Yes, a great deal of assumption, innuendo and personal judgements on posters without personal knowledge. 

 

This is a public forum of opinion-A post was made to do ourselves a favor-

 

I personally, did not feel it was doing such a thing. I’m entitled to feel that way, as are other posters. Still others may feel differently.  That’s fine.

 

I am neither overweight, underweight, or out of shape. I’ve posted several personal photographs here. But, if I was, or another poster, it should have no bearing as to a personal opinion. Nor should it invite personal judgement or attacks.

 

We are not acting or responding as physicians or specialists or professionals when posting here, we are responding as lay-people.  There is a difference.

“Nor should it invite personal judgment or attacks”. But that’s what happened. Double standard. You can respond in a negative way as a “lay person” about a thin person, but if I made a comment on a thread about a Laura Geller product about how big and unhealthy she is, my head would be ripped off. Even though I may “feel that way”

Re: Do yourself a favor!!

[ Edited ]

My point is simply this-This thread is about an individual off of this site on a separate site.  It was apparently posted to garner attention-

 

It did just that-no one can control the differing opinions a topic attracts on an open forum-we know this when posting a thread-It does not however, give permission to attack a “poster” with personal innuendo, who may respond and disagree with the original poster. Who, by the way, was not personally judged.

 

The woman in the video, as far as I know, unless she started this thread under a different name, is not a poster in this thread. Therefore, she is not being judged or attacked by another poster.

 

She is simply a topic of conversation in a thread. A completely separate entity.

LG looks healthy, & is vibrant! She also has good energy. 

 

It's the complete opposite feeling from the Dray video I watched. Let's be real here....Dray has gray coloring, looks ill, & has bones sticking out all over the place.  If that's "health" to some of you, then that's fine.
