Kristin Cavallari clapped back at haters who accused her of starving her sons and called the boys “too skinny.”
Kristin responded to the trolls by blocking them on Instagram.
“Yep, I starve my children,” Cavallari sarcastically wrote on Instagram. “Just blocked the most people I’ve ever blocked in my entire life.”
The controversy erupted after Kristin posted a photo of her shirtless sons Camden Jack, 3, and Jaxon Wyatt, 2, playing at the beach with her husband, Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler.
Some people immediately commented that Camden and Jaxon were too skinny despite the fact their bodies are normal weight.
Sadly, obesity has become so normalized in the United States that parents think normal-weight children are emaciated, even though childhood obesity is a huge problem with long-ranging health consequences.
Kristin Cavallari, a health fanatic, follows a Paleo-style diet, which limits processed foods and emphasizes lots of non-starchy vegetables and high-quality proteins like wild salmon, grass-fed beef and pastured eggs, as Celebrity Health Fitness has reported.
“I’m a freak about what I put in my mouth,” said Cavallari. “I’m constantly reading labels and I don’t eat any toxic chemicals.”
Kristin’s breakfast is usually a smoothie or eggs, while lunch is a salad or turkey sandwich.
For afternoon snacks, she has nuts with dried cherries or an apple with almond butter.
Kristin Cavallari also eats plenty of healthy, Paleo-approved fats like olive oil, avocados, and coconut oil (that doesn’t sound like starvation at all).
“I also love avocados with olive oil and sea salt, and I put coconut oil in or on everything,” said Cavallari, who shares her weight loss, diet and success secrets in her book, Balancing In Heels.
Other celebrities who follow the Paleo diet include Jessica Alba and Jessica Biel, as Celebrity Health Fitness has reported. Both credited a low carb, Paleo based diet for their rapid post-baby weight loss and age-defying beauty.
Weight loss expert Esther Blum, author of Cavewomen Don’t Get Fat, said Paleo doesn’t emphasize calorie restriction and provides a healthy balance of protein, vegetables and high-quality fats that help women manage hormone fluctuations.
Clinical trials show the Paleo diet aids weight loss, prevents heart disease, lowers blood pressure, and reduces acne, said Loren Cordain, author of Real Paleo Fast and Easy and The Real Paleo Diet Cookbook.
