Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave and her All in by Teddi diet scam is more like an abusive relationship via text with a stranger that yells at you about carbs.
Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave has always been transparent about her weight loss journey. She says her program, All in by Teddi, an accountability diet program was a major source of help for her while losing weight. The program’s retreat was filming for this season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and the four-day event cost about $3,899.00 per person.
But now some former members of the programs are speaking out anonymously about the bullying, extreme dieting, and extreme expense of the program. Emily Gellis Lande on Instagram has been documenting stories from those who did the program at one point. Of course, due to the NDA, these cannot be verified. But the sheer amount of people reporting the same atrocious behavior across the board with Teddi and her coaches simply cannot be ignored.
The members sign an NDA when signing up for All in by Teddi, which is incredibly suspicious. Those who have spoken out have shared screenshots of their “mentors” or “coaches” calling them disgusting for eating a meal with carbs or for skipping cardio for the day. So accountability = bullying, I guess. What would be so secretive about a diet that you need to sign a nondisclosure agreement?
The program allegedly allows for about 600-1000 calories a day to be consumed, and photos of every meal must be sent in. Proof of your 60-minute cardio sessions must be sent, too. If you don’t comply, you get kicked out of the program without any sort of refund. The pricing we’ve seen is somewhere around $700 to start and $150 a week after that.
Teddi has no real training to be telling people to starve herself, and she surely has some disordered eating habits along with her lack of training. One person got dropped from the program for eating a burger without a bun on a first date, which Teddi deemed as abandoning the program for a guy. They were dropped that day.
There seem to be no nutritionists or dietitians around, no doctors to ask for help, and no one with any real education on the subject helping the clients. Just some extreme caloric restrictions and a system of “coaching” that seems easy to abuse. It certainly seems like a dangerous way to create unhealthy eating habits, if you get nothing else from it. I can bully myself into not eating more than 1000 calories a day, thank you very much!
Teddi addressed the rumors in an Instagram video where she actually addressed nothing. She basically talked about how great she is and how great eating 500 calories a day is for your body. Would a real dietitian please stand up? Didn’t think so.
