If there's one thing we know about Chrissy Teigen, it’s that she has no problem responding to her haters. The outspoken supermodel, 29, set the record straight on Twitter today about a rumor regarding her diet.

In an interview with ahead of the release of her first-ever cookbook, the culinary-minded model shared what she eats in a day. Teigen listed protein-heavy breakfasts, a love for pickled peppers, pizza, lavish dinners, and a snacking habit that raised the eyebrows of readers everywhere.

“I lick off the nacho cheese seasoning and put the [Doritos] back in the bag,” she said. “You get all the flavor, not all the carbs!”

Some readers may have found her words inappropriate, but Teigen stood behind her candid admission. “I can’t believe I have to address this but my quote about licking the seasoning off Doritos isn’t ‘promoting eating disorders’ it’s a hobby,” she tweeted after receiving backlash. “I wasn’t honestly saying licking the seasoning off Doritos is my idea of diet, you morons," she continued. "It was in the context of ‘it’s a gross thing I do and I am disgusting but hey it’s low carb HA HA’ man social media you are the death of me!”

A few minutes later, she had one more thing to say. “Sorry. You all aren’t morons. Just the people who seriously think I go on Doritos seasoning diets. The rest of you are my everything,” she wrote. Take a look at the tweets below.
