Fans of Whole30 are slamming Kelly Ripa for being "obnoxious" during her interview with creator Melissa Hartwig.
Whole30 is a plan Melissa Created in 2009. Simply put, it involves not eating things like grains, dairy, sugar or legumes for 30 days. Aftwards, you re-introduce them to see how they affect your body.
It's specifically branded as an eating plan, not a diet.
People say it's really helped them with digestion, food cravings and concentration.
Here's the video segment from Monday's show...
Fans of Whole30 are saying Kelly was being disrespectful during the segment.
Complaints include how she called it a "diet", eating a Frito when it's an example of what NOT to eat, and making too many jokes.
All the complaints can be read in the comments of this Instagram post....
This morning I spent 4-1/2 minutes on the @livekellyandryan show talking @Whole30. And they kept calling it a “diet,” and you keep sending me DMs wishing they wouldn’t. • I get it. Thank you for your fierce loyalty to the spirit of the Whole30. ❤️ But in a 4-minutes segment broadcast to 10 million people, “diet” translates and attention-grabs in a way that “reset” or “program” doesn’t. I don’t object to them doing it. I got my talking points in (it’s a 30-day elimination and reintroduction; it’s all about how you feel; whole, real foods; zero mention of weight loss), and they featured the food, website, and books. • Just get them to us... the parents, grandparents, daughters and sons, best friends and co-workers and your mother’s neighbor’s hairdresser. Just GET THEM HERE. We’ll do the rest. • Also I met Liam Neeson. I’m just gonna go home now. • #whole30 #iamwhole30 #changeyourlife @kellyripa @hmhcooks #funpickles
Do you think Kelly went too far during the interview? Was she disrespectful?
