Miley Cyrus Shoots Down Anorexia Rumors

Posted Tuesday April 10, 2012 12:22 PM GMT

Even though Miley Cyrus has been showing off a very thin figure, she assures fans it's not a result of an eating disorder.

The former "Hannah Montana" star took time to set the record straight about why she's so thin, tweeting on Sunday (April 8), "For everyone calling me anorexic, I have a gluten and lactose allergy. It's not about weight -- it's about health. Gluten is crap anyway!"

In a response to one Twitter fan, Cyrus encouraged, "Everyone should try no gluten for a week! The change in your skin, physical and mental health is amazing. You won't go back!"

When the 19-year-old's sister, Noah Cyrus, came to her defense by messaging "you tell'm sissy!" Miley replied, "love u noie! U saw how much I ate today at Easter lunch but all of it was healthy and even more fulfilling! Health is happiness!"

Cyrus not only eats extremely healthily but is very disciplined about going to Pilates several times a week - not to mention walking her dog with beau Liam Hemsworth.
