Hilary Duff is being told she looked better "thicker." The 32-year-old actress took to Instagram on Tuesday with a seriously shredded body as she snapped herself in a strapless bikini and from her bathroom. Hilary, known for embracing a balanced lifestyle as she raises 8-year-old Luca and 1-year-old Banks, received high praise for looking ripped, but not everyone was on-board with the skinny minny look.

Hilary's post came with a diet plan reveal as she admitted enjoying "bread, chocolate, and wine." Scroll for the selfie, plus what fans are saying.

Hilary wrote that she was "still counting" her "macros," adding: "It’s truly helped me stay lean even while eating bread, chocolate, and wine! I also love my @novobodyofficial fam and grateful I have found what works for me."

Duff, who recently posted a paid partnership with Drink Creative Roots' healthy kids drinks, continued: "I know it’s extra hard to keep up and find normalcy in quarantine but I truly hope you make at least 30 mins a day for yourself to stay connected."

The "Younger" actress then encouraged her 15.3 million followers to do "whatever feels good even if it's not food or fitness related."

Fans have been responding. Shooting up to the top was a comment reading: "Woh," with the emoji reactions also coming out – "🔥🔥" received many likes. There's been another response, though.

Hilary, no stranger to trolls with a particularly malicious Twitter storm involving an alleged nude photo of son Luca this year, has spoken out on her shape. 2018 saw Duff say:

"I'm short and always going to be a curvier gal, unless I just decide not to eat anymore, which is not a fun (or healthy!) option," adding: " I'm just strong. I'm cool with how I look. I have really strong legs. I'm a mom so I can toss my kid around and go hard with him all day long, and I love that."
