Supermodel Elle Macpherson caught some haters after she introduced meal replacement shakes for a quick way to lose weight for a summer body.
Supermodel Elle Macpherson has a few tips for girls who are trying to work on their summer bodies, but not everyone is pleased with what the 54-year-old model has to say.
In a recent interview with the British talk show ” This Morning,” Macpherson offered a couple of “summer body” pointers in a segment with the show’s hosts, Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield.
“The summer is coming up, and I’m ready for my summer body,” Macpherson said. “I know that sounds very corny, but we think.”

The model explains that to lose weight, they liked to drink protein infused shakes with fruits and vegetables, which she also revealed she sometimes drinks in replacement of a meal.
“Sometimes I use it as a meal replacement in the evening,” the model said. “If I had a very strong breakfast or a hearty lunch I can get away with having a protein shake for dinner.”
Macpherson then clarified that drinking a shake for a meal replacement should only be done for a short period of time, and is especially recommended for the intended weight loss.

“For a short period of time clearly, it is not for a longer period of time,” she said. “But if it’s in the run-up to the summer and you want to drop a few pounds that is the way I do it and I find it really, really useful.”
But despite her weight-loss warning and explain that skipping a meal should be temporary, the model faced response from critics on social media who argued that the famous body icon should not be advocating for women to skip meals.
A Twitter user wrote: Why are @thismorning promoting ‘beach body ready’ with @ellemacphersontalking about how they sometimes replace dinner with a protein shake? NO. The only way to get the beach body ready is by putting on sunscreen and a bathing suit.”

Another user called the segement baffling and said: “Why are @thismorning #Ellemacpherson a part of the route on the beach bodies? Hair body & lifestyle are not relatable to their viewers?! #baffled.”

The concept of only losing weight was not the only problem that some people with the segment. A Twitter user asked why people they be influenced to change their body.
“SORRY, but maybe you should tell people that they don’t need to their body just because it’s summer?! What a ridiculous section #ThisMorning,” the user said.
