Most people dread getting the flu. (High body temperatures? Chills? Congestion? Count me out.)

But Kim Kardashian totally embraces viral infection.

According to the reality star, the flu makes for an incredible diet plan — *especially* when a major event is coming up.

"The flu can be an amazing diet," Kardashian wrote. "So happy it came in time for the Met." 

She added the hashtag #6lbsdown.

But Twitter was not here for Kardashian calling her current illness an "amazing diet."

People actually die from the flu.

That's right — influenza-associated death is a real thing.

Her lack of appetite is literally her body telling her that she's sick and unhealthy.

...What was Kardashian thinking?

She was likely joking about the "perks" of being sick.

But as an icon with 51.1 million Twitter followers, Kardashian might want to rethink tweeting out her questionable "diet tips" in the future.

Then again, it's not like Kardashian is the ONLY celeb on the flu diet bandwagon...

The flu diet dates back to the 2006 movie, "The Devil Wears Prada." 

(Never forget, Emily Blunt tried it first.)
