UFC fighter Aisling Daly is in a war of words with model Lynn Kelly over her fitness regime.
Lynn, a former Miss Universe Ireland who is vocal about her intense seven day exercise regime, said she regularly vomits after training due to intensity. But Aisling took issue with the statement, saying it's "not normal" as a reaction to
Speaking on The Colette Fitzpatrick Show on Newstalk, Lynn said: "If you talk to anybody who does train quite regularly, quite intense training sessions, that's actually not that uncommon.
"If you push your body so hard, you do vomit, but it's basically a release and then you can keep going."
However, Daly said she has never thrown up after an intense workout, saying: "I'm obviously a high level professional athlete.
"Vomiting after training hard is not normal. I've never once thrown up while training. I think you should be kind to your body. Exercise, look after it like the beautiful machine it is."
Lynn previously came under scrutiny for a super skinny selfie she shared on Instagram last year, but has since hit out at body shamers.
"I thought I looked well. I mean, I wouldn't put up a picture where I thought I didn't look well. Nobody would. I just took the snap, like any normal day, and put it up, and I couldn't believe the reaction," she said in August.
"I had a lingerie show about five days before I took the picture, so I suppose I had been extra, extra strict with myself for a while," she added. "With my eating, and I was training twice a day. I'd still eat carbs: I'd probably die if I didn't eat carbs for a week, but that's because of all the training I do. But I'd be very careful before a show like that. I'd eat lots of vegetables and fish and eggs; I'd be very strict on myself.
