Megyn Kelly: Fat-shaming helps, asked stepdad to call her 'fat ass'

Then Kelly followed it up with this: "When I was in law school, I was gaining weight, I said to my stepfather, 'If you see me going into that kitchen one more time, you say, 'Where you going, fat ass?' And it works!"

On Thursday, Kelly was interviewing "Fit Mom" Maria Kang when she advised, "You should parlay the shaming thing into a professional business".

"Some of us want to be shamed", Kelly said.

Kelly's comments quickly drew criticism from Twitter users with personal experience being fat-shamed. She went on to say that she gained weight while she was in law school, and asked her stepfather to "shame" her in order to help her lose weight.

"I was publicly fat shammed early on in my career and it sent me to therapy". We should be fostering a healthy culture that celebrates all women of all sizes. She has managed to stay slim after having three kids.

Dessert, if desired -1 additional glass of wine.

"I still stand strongly behind the message "What's Your Excuse?" - however, I've changed my tone a little bit", Kang said of her new slogan. "In fact, quite the opposite".

She is just one of the many high profile New Yorkers who have been vocal in talking about what they see as a miracle diet.

Not everyone was impressed with Kelly's weight loss hack.

The F-Factor Diet book is also available for purchase at a variety of retailers and online for a far more affordable price of around $15.

Kelly ended her statement with an enthusiastic thumbs-up.

Back in those days Kelly seemed to be a big fan of yogurt, egg-white omelets, and lots of vegetables.

Kang continued, saying how her husband encouraged her to stick to her fitness goals by hiding the potato chips in their home.

Others didn't take kindly to Kelly's words either.
