Nacho business! Chrissy Teigen took to Twitter on Wednesday, Aug. 12, to silence some haters who took way too much interest in her diet. 

The social media-savvy model, 29, was forced to respond to Twitter users after she gave an interview to Delish.com about what she eats in a day. The wife to John Legend listed hearty breakfasts of eggs and meat, decadent dinners, and snacks of pickled peppers before revealing one questionable habit. 

"I lick off the nacho cheese seasoning and put the chips back in the bag," Teigen told the site. "You still get all the flavor, not all the carbs!"

While the Lip Sync Battle star saw the admission as a fun detail about one of her quirks, some readers had a different take.

"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 facing backlash. "I wasn't honestly saying licking the seasoning off doritos is my idea of diet, you morons. 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!"

After cooling off a bit, Teigen went on to add, "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."

Teigen also responded to a tweet from her good friend Brooklyn Decker, who wrote simply "hahahahahahahahaaahaha," after Teigen's initial tweet. She shot back at her pal, responding, "LAUGH IT UP, BROOKIE."
