When Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave pops the "Ask Me Anything" sticker up on Instagram, her followers' questions inevitably turn to food and fitness. After all, counseling clients in both of those areas is what Teddi does for a living, via her booming business All In by Teddi. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills pal is always keen to answer questions on the topics she knows best, and she did so again in a post on February 5.
When a follower wrote in to ask Teddi: "Any diet tips?" you might think she'd laugh and think where do I begin? However, her answer was rather succinct — as Teddi doesn't really believe in diets at all.
In response to the question, Teddi wrote: "Diets don't work. Lifestyle changes do. If you are looking at something like it's a temporary change you will always set yourself up to fail." Teddi, who had an amazing weight-loss transformation herself over three years ago, added this personal anecdote: "Once I stopped dieting and started changing my life everything changed."

Teddi's not the only uber-fit Bravoleb who prizes lifestyle changes over diets. When Tamra Judge chatted with The Feast recently about her feelings about Keto and her own eating style, she said: "I don’t really follow any diet. I just follow a lifestyle."
