Elle Macpherson, 54, comes under fire from TV viewers for encouraging women to skip meals to lose weight and get 'beach body ready'

Women have been encouraged to skip meals in order to get 'beach body ready' in a This Morning segment branded 'ridiculous' by viewers.

Supermodel Elle Macpherson, 54, presented the guide on the ITV show on Wednesday, during which she revealed her tips for losing weight to look better in swimwear.

One of the mother-of-two's tricks was to swap her dinner for a protein shake and to remove 'anything white' from her diet.

However, viewers criticised the show for implying that women needed to lose weight to look good on the beach, with one saying: 'Shame on you!'

Despite being one of the world's most famous supermodels, Elle said she was starting to worry about staying in shape.

She explained: 'Summer's coming up and I too am getting ready for a summer body. I know it sounds really corny but we all think about that.'

Viewers took to Twitter to slam the advice, saying beach bodies don't have to be a certain weight or clothes size.

One tweeted: 'SORRY, but maybe you should tell people that they don't need to change their body just because it's summer?! What a ridiculous section.'

Let me get this straight... Some people asked for advice on how to lose weight. Someone gives them her advice. Other people, not associated with the first group, are upset that she gave them what they asked for? Explain the logic of those upset!

The worst part of this is the obvious intentional stupidity and lack of comprehension evidenced in the backlash. She didn't really say "skip meals," i.e. "don't eat." She said to "replace" a meal with a protein drink and fruits/vegetables. Given most American's diet, that would be the healthiest meal of their day -- and it could be completely fat-free.

Any implication that my beer belly, saggy chest, and enormous thighs are NOT BEAUTIFUL is an assault on my worth as a human being! MOOO!

Ms. MacPherson merely commented what she felt she needed to do to fulfil her self image. And, it must be said, to keep her career.

There was no indication that she felt all women (or men) should do the same. If one wanted to try her regimen, no problem. If not, no big deal.

Those whining are most likely women who would like to look like her, but are too unmotivated to do what it takes.
