Jill Duggar Adresses Concerns Over Derick Dillard's Health

He does eat! After months of concern over Derick Dillard's thin frame, Jill (Duggar) Dillard has finally commented on her husband's health. Fans have been concerned that Derick contracted some sort of disease in El Salvador, as he's looked practically malnourished in photos they've shared on social media.


Indeed Derick has looked leaner than ever recently, which led to speculation that he contracted some sort of tropical illness while serving as a missionary in Central America.

The couple returned to the States with their toddler son Israel several weeks ago, and it looks like Derick is taking the opportunity to beef up. The Counting On star posted a picture of his late-night snack over the weekend, and it's the sort of thing that will likely add pounds just by smelling it.

Ahh... Nothing quite like a good bowl of fried Oreos for a bedtime snack! #nofilter

Yup, those are fried Oreos. And ranch sauce, but before you get too grossed out, Derick clarified in the comments that that was for the pizza he also consumed. Because when you're trying to bulk up, carb-y greasy pizza can go a long way.

Of course those may not be the healthiest diet choices, and Jill is certainly anticipating some backlash. In the comments, she joked, "lol just wondering what people will say about your diet now?????#watchingcomments#cheapentertainment"
