After losing a noticeable amount of weight last year, twerking superstar Miley Cyrus found herself facing rumors that she had an eating disorder. She denounced those comments angrily.

Miley explained that she had shed pounds after shifting to a gluten-free and lactose-free diet for health reasons.

"For everyone calling me anorexic I have a gluten and lactose allergy," tweeted Miley. "It's not about weight it's about health. Gluten is cr*pppp anyway!"

Is there really a link between weight loss and giving up gluten and dairy? Some health experts say yes.

Dr. Mark Hyman, for example, recently appeared on Dr. Mehmet Oz's talk show. He's' the author of "The Blood Sugar Solution: The UltraHealthy Program for Losing Weight, Preventing Disease, and Feeling Great Now!" (click for details).

"Foods with dairy can cause unhealthy bacteria to overgrow and produce toxins that cause systemic inflammation that swells the intestines and prevents normal digestion, causing weight gain, among other conditions such as irritable bowel. In fact, you can gain up to 30 pounds a year due to a dairy allergy," says Dr. Hyman.

And the same weight gain can occur from a gluten sensitivity, warns Dr. Hyman. Symptoms can include bloating and weight gain.

Agreeing with him when it comes to weight gain from wheat: Renowned cardiologist Dr. William Davis. He's authored two books to guide you on the path to weight loss by giving up wheat: "Wheat Belly: Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight, and Find Your Path Back to Health" (click for details) and "Wheat Belly Cookbook: 150 Recipes to Help You Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight, and Find Your Path Back to Health."
