Haters gonna hate!

Cheryl Burke recently came under fire for appearing too skinny in a bikini selfie she posted on Twitter, and the Dancing with the Stars star wants people to know she shed pounds the healthy way, rather than disregarding her well being and going wild like she did in her twenties.

    "It was one big party. And now, that's not the way I want to live my life. I've had to change my lifestyle. I'm happy. I'm eating well. I'm working out every day. And I'm more responsible," she explained to People.

After Twitter followers commented that she looked like she was "dying", the dancer got her feelings hurt and felt that she needed to silence her critics.

    "When you change your lifestyle, your body changes. I'm completely healthy. My curves are never going to go away. Have I lost weight? Absolutely. But not in an unhealthy way. I want everyone to know that. I love my fans. But words are hurtful, especially coming from people you think always have your back," she confessed.

So how exactly did she achieve her slimmed down bod?

    "I'm not on a diet. I'm not on Atkins or anything. It's just the fact that I'm eating right,' the professional hoofer clarified. I'm taking care of my body. 80 percent of it is what you eat and what you consume. It's all about portion control," she revealed.

And there you have it folks!
