Little People fans are ‘scared’ for Audrey Roloff’s kids as husband Jeremy encourages ‘dangerous’ habits in new post
LITTLE People, Big World star Jeremy Roloff has been criticized for telling his fans to fast.
His followers claimed the diet could be dangerous and admitted they were “scared” for the three children of Jeremy and his wife Audrey.
Jeremy, 32, praised the benefits of autophagy – the process of cell rejuvenation in the body triggered by fasting.
The graduate of The Little People, Big World wrote on his Instagram Story on Tuesday, “For fasting for health, look to ‘autophagy’.”
“There is a lot of peer-reviewed research on fasting-induced cellular rejuvenation.
“It’s quite amazing that the body is designed to have an internal cell repair mechanism.
“Unfortunately, due to our gluttony (and many other factors) guesting has become a forgotten art and most people live in disconnected relationship with the body’s natural processes.”
Critics slammed Jeremy’s contribution and expressed concern for his three children – Bode, Ember and Radley, one.
One wrote on Reddit: “Dude seriously needs to stop talking about the benefits of fasting until he proves he’s doing what he’s asking.”
“He supports a seven-day water-only fast but never mentions his personal experiences.”

Another added, “I’m scared of how they’re going to raise their kids.”
Others worried that Jeremy wasn’t doing the proper research to back up his claims.
One raged: “You can’t convince me at all that Jerm reads peer-reviewed research.”
“He borrows the words of internet ‘doctors’ who say they’ve read it. None of them read it.”
Another user commented, “I find her behavior problematic.”
Jeremy previously shared a video of someone who appears to be in the medical field claiming that a seven-day water fast reduces the risk of developing cancer by “more than 70%.”
The TLC star revealed his new fasting journey a few weeks ago.
He shared a video on his Instagram where he talks about the topic.
The post stated, “Fasting is a decision made by the mind to suppress the impulses of our five senses of the body on the physical plane.”
Jeremy continued, “That’s why he claims domination and healing as a by-product.”
“It is a physical and spiritual healing practice because it reboots the body and rebalances the mind, body and spirit.”
The LPBW graduate linked a video of someone who appears to be in the medical field claiming that a seven-day water fast reduces the risk of developing cancer by “more than 70%.”
In the following story post, Jeremy wrote, “Fasting is a decision made by our minds to regain control of our bodies.”
“And in doing so, we not only remember, but also experience that we are not just one body, we are one soul, and both have standards of health that need to be nurtured.”
