Heidi Klum is urging fans not to believe everything on the internet. Following recent reports that the former Victoria's Secret model only consumes 900 calories per day, Klum went on Instagram Stories to set the record straight. "I just got home and some friends are sending me these articles that have been written that I only take in 900 calories," she said. "I want to say, I don't think I've ever had to count my calories in my life, and don't believe everything that you read."
A few days before responding to the claims, Klum posted on Instagram Stories to show off some of her typical meals, including three poached eggs in chicken broth for breakfast. Several outlets reported her saying she doesn't exceed a certain amount of calories each day, but according to Klum, that couldn't be further from the truth. "I don't count my calories," the "America's Got Talent" judge clarified, adding that a fan had asked how much she weighs, so she got on the scale and showed them. "I don't know, people just put things together and just write a bunch of crap."
Klum lamented that there is "no real journalism anymore," which means rumours and misunderstandings tend to spread quickly on social media. Considering that 900 calories is well below the recommended daily intake, even for those in a caloric deficit, it's understandable that Klum wouldn't want to set such a harmful precedent. "It's really sad because people read that and they think that and possibly follow that," she said. "And that's not good for [them]."
