There were several who asked if she was ok and there was enough concern for Christina to then address their worries. She took to her Instagram Stories to let them know everything was ok. 

Talking from her car she said: "So, people are commenting that I look really skinnier and I need to eat. This is actually the way that I’ve always weighed."

Christina assured fans she's healthy 

Christina has her own cookbook and recently opened up about how she changed her diet after discovering she had two health conditions. 

She has Hashimoto's thyroid disease and PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome), as well as skin flare-ups caused by certain foods, so she has had to completely overhaul her wellness regime.

Christina is a proud mum-of-three

"I was over-caffeinating and under-eating," she wrote in the foreword of her book, The Wellness Remodel. "I lived on juices, protein bars, and coffee, and I was really scared of fats – any fats."

With the help of her nutritionist, Cara Clark, who co-wrote the cookbook with Christina, she has a healthy balanced diet. 

"It's so important that I stay healthy and that my brain stays active," she said. "That way I'll be able to be on for all the kids and work."
