Lebanese company, Kalastios International, produces (another) 100% natural slimming capsule. And they call it “Starvex” which is a shameless way of saying: “Stay healthy by starving yourself.” Seriously, we have crossed all boundaries of shame when it comes to dieting in Lebanon. My friend Ran thinks they mean to say “ex-starving, i.e. you don’t need to starve yourself anymore.. you can just take this capsule and it will slim you down.” I, on the other hand, think they ripped off “Kleenex” with “Starvex.” They are actually actively encouraging women to starve themselves. What is left to say about this industry in Lebanon?
