Lori said at the start of the TikTok, "Everybody's been asking like what it is I specifically did to get my body to this point." The 25-year-old social media personality continued, "So, when Mike and I got together, I gained like 15 pounds of relationship weight and it was horrible, none of my clothes fit, it was just not okay."

She also informed that she had been consistently doing Pilates for a little over a year. However, she continued to explain that it was not just Pilates that helped her lose the weight. Lori added that cardio is part of her routine in addition to a low-calorie diet. She revealed that she consumed just 1,200 calories each day to achieve her abs and overall toned physique. While Lori did not follow a strict diet pattern, she tried to "eat meat and veggies and like minimal carbs." She added, "When I was trying to drop weight, I was working out like five, six times a week, and I would even do, for the first month and a half, I would even do two-a-days."

Explaining further, Lori said, "[Cardio] is how you drop. Pilates alone is not going to make you lose weight. It's just going to give you long, lean muscles. So yeah, that's how I did it." However, the social media personality was aware she could face some backlash. So she concluded by saying, "Before y'all start your s**t, this is what worked for me and my body..everyone is different so tailor your needs to meet your goals."

Journalist Ernest Owens responded to the video, "Fun, but important, facts: 'Relationship weight' isn't a real thing -- but correlating comfort & love to weight gain as if it's a problem is fatphobic AF. Eating 1200 calories a day after gaining 15 pounds says a lot about Lori Harvey and the society's fear of fat. All sad." 

Another user added, "Please don't eat as low as 1200 calories guys." and "omg 1200 is so low!!" Highlighting the fact that she was working out too, "1200 MAX??? while working out??? Guys don't do that lol."

However, one user had a different point of view. The user said, "Lori eating 1200 Cals is most likely based on her BMR + Cal deficient. She's not saying everyone needs to eat 1200 cals." Another supporter added, "See this is why famous people don't give us the tea cuz then they get dragged. Let her live she putting us on."
