 Miley Cyrus Dismisses Anorexia Reports

Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus has dismissed reports that she is suffering from anorexia and attributed her sudden weight loss to a gluten-free diet.

Writing on her Twitter account, the 19-year old rejected rumors of her being anorexic and said that she was following a gluten-free diet as she was allergic to gluten and lactose. "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", she wrote and even recommended that everyone should such a diet for at least a week.

However a number of dieticians warned people about the dangers of gluten-free diet and said that only those who are allergic to the protein should follow such a diet. Says Karen Ansel, who is a registered dietician, "There's absolutely no evidence that a gluten-free diet promotes weight loss. However, there is data that indicates that following a gluten-free diet can result in a diet that's low in key nutrients."
