‘I’d be starving’: Fans question Michelle’s meals
FORMER The Biggest Loser trainer Michelle Bridges is famous for her tough stance on health and fitness.
Her motto is "Just Freaking Do It". One of her many best-selling cookbooks is called No Excuses. She once said she had "never met a happy obese person".
Bridges, 47, is big on tough love. It's what makes her so successful and it's what keeps her absolutely shredded figure in shape. She's fit and healthy and she's not going to apologise for it.
But recently she has started sharing photos of her own homemade lunches on Instagram and even her loyal followers have questioned her small portion sizes. FYI, she's posting the photos to plug her new range of lunch boxes.
Don't get us wrong, these lunches look delicious. But they could be a little bigger.
Getting quite addicted to finding new and colourful combos for my take-to-works 😋🍽 Today's #5minutelunchbox is brought to you by hot smoked salmon (store bought but totes inspired to smoke my own this weekend @commandosteve 🐟), lemon hummus, leftover brown rice and fridgy bits and pieces. Looks good right 😎👌 #mblunchboxrevolution @woolworths_au @bigwaustralia
Many of Bridges' followers have commented on her tiny lunch photos, saying these portions would not keep them satiated throughout the day.
"I would be staaaaarving still after eating that," one person wrote. While others said "That would keep me going for about seven minutes" and "My 1 year old eats more than this."
Some argued that everyone was good except for her protein portions, calling them "too small".
"Love the colours these come in but I don't think they are big enough!" one fan wrote.
But many followers said they loved the lunch boxes and that the smaller sizes would help them avoid overeating.
"Where do you get these trays - they look perfect for portion control," one commenter wrote.
"Love these, hubby and I both use the set I bought to take our lunches to work," another said.
