“Other fake news that’s going around about me is that I’ve been taking weird pills 4 weight loss or doing weird fad diets,” the singer wrote. All of this is not true. I ain’t got time 4 all that. I eat the same stuff I always have. It’s all just made w/different flours/sugars/ingredients. #DrGundry.”

Dr. Grundy, who she mentioned in the Tweet with a hashtag, is a cardiac surgeon and the author of the book “The Plant Paradox.”

Her rebuke of the dieting rumors followed after the singer called out on people who have been creating fake social media accounts under her name.

“This is fake news & not me. What is wrong with people? I mean, I’m way too busy to be sitting around creating fake accounts. I mean, people if you’re that bored go ahead & do the world a service and maybe read a book & better yourself rather than be weird & lie to people,” she tweeted

Back in 2018, Clarkson revealed to a source that she gained weight due to a thyroid disorder and an autoimmune disease. She credited her recovery to Dr. Grundy’s book that helped her bring her hormone levels back to normal.

The singer could ditch her medicine, all thanks to the book. Clarkson further shared how she focuses on an “organic diet” and relies on it to keep herself in shape. 

"Literally, I haven’t worked out at all! I think people think I’m working out and I’m like, ‘Don’t think I’m going to come play some sport!’” she revealed. The revelation definitely came as a surprise to her fans since she shed a lot of pounds.

According to her, the book prompted her to completely change her diet.
