Though the 19-year-old singer has always maintained a trim and taut figure, she’s confessed that a combination of a gluten allergy and daily pilates has caused a drastic weight loss.
Virgin told Celebuzz:
“The toning is clearly from exercise, but I believe the fat loss was due to the elimination of dairy and gluten as I have seen similar effects with hundreds of clients.”
Explaining what happens when an individual cuts out gluten, JJ said it helps “with fast fat loss and improved energy.”
“A gluten ‘allergy’ could be anything from outright celiac disease where eating gluten will kill you over time, to gluten intolerance where gluten can cause symptoms including gas and bloating, weight gain, brain fog, inability to focus and joint pain. Even if you don’t have an intolerance to gluten I have to agree with Miley in that gluten is ‘crappp food.’”
In April, Cyrus — who engaged Liam Hemsworth last week — called out her critics. She Tweeted:
“For everyone calling me anorexic I have a gluten and lactose allergy. It’s not about weight it’s about health. Gluten is crapppp anyway!, adding “Everyone should try no gluten for a week! The change in your skin, phyisical and mental health is amazing! U won’t go back!”
