Teddi Mellencamp is defending All In, her accountability program, after its controversial methods were slammed on social media.
Former participants claimed this week that the program restricted them to just 500 calories a day and required an hour of cardiovascular activity. Emily Gellis Lande, who previously called out the F-Factor diet for its alleged side effects, reposted screenshots on Instagram of the allegations and a Reddit thread surfaced with a screenshot that claimed participating in the program that required an NDA.
Despite the backlash, the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star told her followers on Instagram Tuesday that she is “so incredibly proud of the over 15,000 lives we have helped changed. I am so proud of our clients. I love all of our coaches. I love that I can wake up every single day and feel good about what I do. I live and breathe it.
“I 100 percent feel confident in the fact that we let you know before signing up exactly what the program entails,” she continued. “If it’s something that you want to do and you want us to hold you accountable to your goals, we are there to do that for you. If it’s not something you want to sign up for, you don’t. That’s why I love that we are very transparent from the beginning.”
“We believe in you,” she concluded. “We will fight for you. And we know the best is yet to come.”
Mellencamp, 39, first launched the All In accountability program after she lost 80 pounds. As part of the program, participants are assigned a coach to help navigate meal and exercise plans to achieve their own goals.
The plan costs $599 for the two-week jumpstart program, $525 for the new postpartum program, $399 for the monthly program, $165 for the weight and weightless program and $95 for a maintenance program.
Neither Mellencamp nor the coaches have any health or fitness certifications — instead, they have all participated in the program themselves.
As for her approach Mellencamp previously told Page Six, she aims to be mindful and not restrictive.
“I also tell myself or my clients, try to focus on eating to nourish yourself,” she said at the time. “If you’re going to a party just because you’re showing up to eat or drink, not because you actually want to see the people you’re going to the party for, you might want to rethink your plans.”
Mellencamp’s friend and “RHOBH” co-star Kyle Richards defended her and the program on social media after Camille Grammer attacked All In, saying: “Camille, you really need to move on and get a life. Teddi has helped so many people and changed their lives. What are you doing everyday? Tweeting about RHOBH? You befriend whoever you think will get you a [diamond emoji] [joy emoji]. Talk about a mean girl [hand wave emoji].”
Mellencamp’s rep declined to comment.
