The Kardashian clan have long been the face of the diet product QuickTrim, which has helped them gain a hefty fortune since its inception. However, the company is currently being faced with a lawsuit, as the pill contains high levels of caffeine, which are “not safe or effective for weight loss.”
Kim and Khloe Kardashian struck a deal with New Jersey-based Windmill Health Products in 2009, where they struck a deal as the face of the supplement, bringing in $45 million since their endorsement began. In January 2010 Kim revealed her slimmed down figure in an ad for the company, where she claimed that QuickTrim helped her shed 15 pounds. In 2011 Kim also tweeted that the supplement helped her slim down for her lavish wedding to Kris Humphries.
In 2010 Georgetown physician Adriane Fugh-Berman sent out a warning to QuickTrim users, stating: "If you pop a couple of these pills with your Starbucks . . . you could get caffeine poisoning, which can cause heart arrhythmia.”
