    “I just got home and some friends are sending me these articles that have been written that I only take in 900 calories. I want to say, I don’t think I’ve ever had to count my calories in my life,” she wrote on her Instagram.

    She further added, “And don’t believe everything that you read. So, I don’t count my calories.”

    Other outlets stated that in an impromptu Instagram Q&A session on Sunday, Klum divulged her daily dietary habits, supposedly encompassing a morning meal comprising three poached eggs in chicken broth, alongside an overall intake of 900 calories throughout the day.

    The initial rumors sparked widespread backlash online as many questioned the example being set by such low-caloric consumption.

    “This is how people adopt an eating disorder…. please do not work off a diet like this,” one user wrote on X. Another advised against comparing one’s body or eating habits with celebrities.

    The “America’s Got Talent” judge expressed concern over how such news could influence others negatively.

    “People just make up stories, one person writes it, and then everyone jumps on it… people read that and they think that, and possibly follow that, and that’s not good,” said Klum.
