Yolanda Hadid's Almond Diet, also known as Almond Mom, refers to a viral video featuring Yolanda, Bella Hadid and Gigi Hadid's mother and former model, advising Gigi to eat two almonds instead of a larger meal. The clip first aired on the Bravo reality TV show Real Housewives of Beverly Hills before going viral on YouTube and Twitter in 2019. Rumors about Yolanda's management of her children's eating habits have since made her name synonymous with diet culture and pro-anorexia stan culture.


On November 12th, 2013, episode 2 of season 4 of The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills aired on Bravo. The episode featured a scene where supermodel Gigi Hadid mentions feeling weak from undertaking a "juice cleanse" alongside her mother.

On April 23rd, 2019, YouTube[3] channel itstea posted a video compilation titled, "Yolanda Hadid Telling Gigi Not to Eat for 2 Minutes Straight" and gathered over 7 million views in three years (seen below). The clip contained several instances of Yolanda giving Gigi advice on what to eat, and what to avoid to stop her from getting "overly muscular."


The name "Yolanda" and "almond mom" soon became synonymous with unhealthy diet culture on the internet, with various people referring to Yolanda when speaking about their issues with self-image or eating habits.

On September 29th, 2022, Yolanda Hadid posted her third ever TikTok[8] video, set to the Rosalia Chewing song, featuring her eating from a bowl full of almonds alongside a caption that read "#worstmomever." The video gathered over 500,000 views and 40,000 likes in nearly a month, alongside comments that varied from "can you adopt me so I can be skinny," and "you indeed are." (seen below)

In an interview with People magazine on October 20th, Yolanda says her conversation with Gigi was taken out of context. She admits she is unable to recount telling Gigi to eat two almonds, saying that she had just come out of surgery for breast implant removal and barely remembers the conversation.[9]
