“I don’t know who needs to hear this but complimenting someone on their weight loss can be as harmful as complimenting someone on their weight gain in regards to talking to someone in recovery from an eating disorder.” Demi Lovato’s Instagram story had read.
Demi Lovato has urged fans to no longer comment on their body in the future.
The 28-Year-Old urged people not to comment on other people’s bodies, especially as no one can tell someone’s history with food. Even though the intention might be pure, the two-time Grammy nominee claimed it might leave the person awake at 2 a.m., overthinking the statement.

Demi continued: “Does it feel great? Yeah, sometimes. But only to the loud a** eating disorder voice inside my head that says, see, people like a thinner you or if you eat less you’ll lose even more weight. But it can also sometimes suck because then I start thinking. Well, damn. What’d they think of my body before?”
“I am more than the shell for my soul that is my body, and every day I fight to remind myself of that.”
“Moral of the story: I am more than the shell for my soul that is my body, and every day I fight to remind myself of that, so I’m asking you to please not remind me that that is all people see of me sometimes.” Demi’s eating disorder recovery hasn’t been simple. Their recovery from bulimia is challenging, but they have continually fought against negative thoughts about their body.
