Megyn Kelly: Some women want to be fat-shamed

"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!"

Speaking with "Fit Mom" and mommy blogger Maria Kang, 37, on her "Today" show Thursday, the former Fox News anchor said her 1990s tactic to stay thin was asking her family to fat-shame her when she was eating too much.

"You parlay the shaming thing into a professional business, because some of us want to be shamed".

Kang, who was on the show to reveal her new laid-back approach to fitness and her dedication to inspiring other mums to work out, rather than fat-shaming them, seemed taken aback by the host's comments. Kang stirred up controversy four years ago when she posted a picture showing off her trim physique, surrounded by her three children.

Kelly's message of "wanting to be shamed" didn't go over well with many watching at home, including The View host Meghan McCain. Trust me, there are real life ramifications for fat shaming of any kind, it is NEVER acceptable.

Dessert, if desired -1 additional glass of wine. "In fact, quite the opposite".

The broader segment focused on Kang's decision to soften her image following her "What's Your Excuse" campaign, which many said was bullying to those who weren't physically fit.

And for $15,000, Zuckerbrot will meet for 10 sessions that include a consultation, a weight-loss workshop and eight follow-up appointments to track the progress being made on the diet.

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

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

Kelly said when she was in middle school found herself "on the wrong side of some vicious bullies" who attacked her for her weight.
