Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave Defends Her ‘All In by Teddi’ Program Amid Criticism; Says “I Love That We Are Very Transparent From The Beginning”

Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave defended her accountability program amid criticism from Bravo viewers — and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Camille Grammer.

“For one, I wanted to say I love All In. I am so incredibly proud of the over 15,000 lives we have helped changed,” Teddi began in a video on Tuesday, September 15, via Instagram, according to Us Weekly. “I 100 percent feel confident in the fact that we let you know before signing up exactly what the program entails. 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.”

She concluded: “We believe in you. We will fight for you, and we know that the best is yet to come.”

Teddi’s post was shared just hours after Bravo Snarkside on Instagram shared a series of screenshots from a woman who claimed to have had a horrible experience with All In.

“[Dietitians] and nutritionists are calling her out for her unsafe diet plan that is practically an eating disorder!” the woman alleged, adding that All In was “under fire for starvation diet and unsafe workouts with insufficient daily calories.”

In one of the screenshots shared with the post, a woman claimed to have been harassed and bullied by her All In coaches after adding an egg to her quinoa, according to a report by Reality Blurb. Then, after experiencing a spike in her endometriosis due to the amount of oatmeal and quinoa she was consuming, she was dropped by the company.

After Teddi’s wellness company faced backlash, a user asked the Bravo reality star if she was truly certified in nutrition.

“I personally am an AFPA certified Nutrition and Wellness consultant along with AFPA certified personal trainer,” Teddi confirmed.

Teddi then explained that her coaches are not trainers and nutritionists. “It is all explained on the FAQ’s page on our website. What has worked for us is truly living the lifestyle and going through a big change being coached by someone else who truly knows the ups and downs of personally changing their life. We are very transparent about all of this. I think before anyone signs up for a program they should do their research and decide if it’s the right one for them,” Teddi stated.

However, a women chimed in said that she was “so upset” about the claims against Teddi and added that the All In program changed her life.

After a user accused the woman of working for the wellness program, Mellencamp addressed the topic and set the record straight.

“She doesn’t work for me. [Shelby], we [love] you and appreciate you for sharing your story,” she wrote.

Camille Grammer responded to a social media user who criticized the strict guidelines. Camille responded, “It’s suspect,” which prompted Richards to fire back and defend Teddi.

“Camille, you really need to move on and get a life,” Kyle tweeted. “Teddi has helped so many people and changed their lives. What are you doing everyday? Tweeting about RHOBH?”

Grammer fired back and tweeted to her co-star, “Brandi never lies Kyle?” referencing all of the drama between Brandi Glanville and her alleged affair with Denise Richards, which played out during season 10.

Richards tweeted back, “Camille why are you so angry? You weren’t even involved with this.”
Mellencamp launched All In by Teddi after she lost 80 pounds by changing her own lifestyle. Her program kicks off with a two-week jumpstart plan, which includes a vegetarian and dairy-free menu, no alcohol and 60 minutes of physical activity each day. Participants are also assigned an accountability coach to keep them on track with their weight loss. While the employees do not have any fitness, medical or health certifications, per All In’s website, all of the coaches are picked by Mellencamp and must complete the program themselves, reports Us Weekly.
