Christina Aguilera slammed rumors that her 35-pound weight loss was the result of liposuction, insisting she lost weight through diet and exercise.
“Christina did not get lipo," a friend told Life & Style. "She’s worked hard to change her eating habits, and you can see the results.
The last thing Christina wants to hear is that people are talking about her losing weight with liposuction. She’s sick and tired of people assuming things about her body."
Tabloids have also claimed Aguilera's weight loss was due to Reiki, a Japanese healing method, but so far, those unsubstantiated reports have proven to be nothing more than product-placement ads.
Other tabloid rumors claim Aguilera lost weight through "extreme" dieting and exercise, but the blonde beauty has slammed those reports as totally false.
What we do know is that Aguilera has lost over 35 pounds by following a low-carb diet and doing yoga. Christina's diet combines high-quality fats like avocado with lean proteins such as chicken breast or fish and includes healthy snacks like almond butter with celery.
The 5-foot-2 Aguilera now reportedly weighs a sleek 100 pounds. Christina said yoga workouts spurred her jaw-dropping weight loss. "I did yoga," she said.
Christina isn't the only celebrity who has been accused of resorting to plastic surgery to lose weight. Kim Kardashian, who lost 50 pounds on the low-carb Atkins diet, recently slammed rumors that she got $80,000 in cosmetic enhancements to slim down.
"I am very frustrated today seeing reports that I got surgery to lose my baby weight!" she tweeted. "This is false. I worked so hard to train myself to eat right and healthy. I work out so hard."
Similarly, Miranda Lambert, who lost 25 pounds through diet and exercise, also denied rumors she lost weight through plastic surgery.
"I did not have surgery to lose weight," she said. "That is ridiculous. I lost my weight the healthy and good-old fashioned way: Watching what I eat and working out."
