Healthy Mummy founder hits back at ACA claims behind the truth of ‘celebrity diets’.
Rhian Allen has spoken out following a story on ACA saying it was all very misleading and now hopes to clarify a few points.
The story in question was focused on the truth about Celebrity diets and shakes and how they promise you weightloss success but are often just doing more harm than good.
In the story they claimed that celebs are just all about the money and not really interested in helping anyone lose weight.
They also compared some of the popular weight loss programs including The Healthy Mummy.
Rhian said, “I founded the Healthy Mummy 9 years ago when I was pregnant with my first baby and I realised nothing existed that helped mums get healthy and back in shape after having children. I wanted to create a supportive, sustainable, balanced and budget friendly program that genuinely helped mums get healthy.
“I sold my house and quit my job and invested everything I had to start the business and I brought on an extensive team of qualified nutritionists and fitness trainers to create our programs”, Rhian stipulated.
“A Current Affair in their piece, insinuated that I create the Healthy Mummy plans and am unqualified – this is 100% not true as I have always paid nutrition and fitness experts to create our plans and we currently have 5 nutritionists as part of the team and 5 fitness experts – with more about to come on. Also all our fitness videos (we have over 350 in our app) feature our experts and never once feature me as I am not a fitness professional.
“Secondly we are mentioned in the piece as being a celebrity backed diet – we are 100% not – we have no celebs on board as we focus on real mums and our plans are built around family friendly and sustainable plans – not any kind of quick fix.
Rhian added, “I am passionate about what we do at The Healthy Mummy (we also offer an enormous amount of free recipes, exercises and content for mums who can not afford our programs)and helping as many mums as possible and would love it if ACA would have contacted us for facts about what we do before including me and The Healthy Mummy in this piece.
“The mums health and wellbeing is at the TOP of my priorities and always will be and we continue to evolve the business based on the wants and needs of mums who give us feedback as we are a true CUSTOMER focused business and always will be.”

Rhian’s Facebook post received hundreds of comments of support from her followers including:
“This is so sad to hear that you have to defend this amazing business you have built for all of us.”
“Wouldn’t of believed a word of it anyway!!Ive already recommended my friend to HM and she’s just signed up!!I have every faith in all your doing with your wonderful team!”

“I’ve just been on The ACA Facebook page and it’s so amazing to see hundreds of comments defending this fantastic program.”
“So disappointing, ACA needs to get their facts straight. So many of us mums can vouch for your program Rhian. It has helped so many of us including myself.”
Members of The Healthy Mummy also jumped on the ACA Facebook page to let them know a few true facts.
One comment read, “Wrong !!! ACA . The owner and creator of the healthy mummy employs a number of fitness and nutrition experts who create amazing meals and exercises. She does not create them herself. There are thousands of people who support this program and not all of them have memberships. ”
Another said, “HE HEALTHY MUMMY DIET IS CREATED BY PROFESSIONALS..THE OWNER AND CREATOR HAS PROFESSIONALS ON HER TEAM TO MANAGE ALL THAT.”
“Omg!!! How about you get the right facts. Heathy Mummy has no celebrity endorsement! Its all everyday real mums!!!! “, said another.
“Did you run out of storyline’s last night ACA? The Healthy Mummy was designed by a MUM for other MUMS! There is an entire team of qualified professionals that work behind the scenes.”
