Demi Lovato Remains Candid On Eating Disorders

One of the best things about Demi Lovato, other than how kind and caring she is, is that she is ALWAYS open and honest about her struggles with eating disorders. She is never silent about how hard it is to control her own thoughts on her body image.

The world and young women are better because of this!

Here's what she said:

"I was about 12 or 13 when I developed my eating disorder, and at that time nobody in the public eye talked about their body issues. I feel that if someone had admitted they had a problem, then I wouldn't have gone down that route myself. That's my goal in talking about my problems: I want to be the person for other girls that I needed to admire when I was looking for help and strength."

That's exactly who you are, Demi!

She continued:

"It's OK to love your body the way it is and it's OK to reach out for help if you have drug and alcohol problems, or if you're self-harming or being bullied."

We want to echo her positivity and support — there is nothing wrong with reaching out for help. There is NOTHING wrong with your bodies, and healthiness comes in many different forms, shapes, and sizes. What matters is that you're okay!

Demi, we love what you're doing and who you are!

    It's always something with this chola! She is nothing if not a victim.

    She's always on a Victim Tour. "I was bullied, I'm bulimic, I'm bipolar"…you know, it's very telling of a person's ego when they constantly remind the public they want to be admired & looked up to. Why do you write music, Demi? Isn't that your job? How bout you sing?

    One of the WORST things about Lovato, who is a talentless, stupid fuckin cow, is that she won't shut her fucking mouth. Lovato had it sooooooooooooooo rough … NOT. She wasn't bullied, the size of her thighs proves she doesn't have food issues, and if she's got so many other things wrong with her, maybe she should focus her efforts on trying to fix her flaws instead of running her mouth about them. Lovato isn't that interesting, and she's not much to admire. It's time for someone to sew her fucking lips shut.

    This is to you, and any other hater that either has or plans on commenting on this post. You people are EXTREMELY ignorant. Demi is healthy, not fat. Who says her weight isn't normal? You? Ha! Okay. She doesn't look like she battles eating disorders because she is in RECOVERY. She is fighting and WINNING everyday. And if she wants to shout it from the rooftop everyday of her life, we (her supporters) are going to listen and shout it with her. Demi has a heart of gold. She wants to help girls & boys who don't have healthy role models to look up to and gain strength from. She discusses her past issues so much because interviewers ask her so much. If you don't like her, fine–she doesn't need you, but don't talk what you don't know.

    WOW! most of the commenters are complete losers! how DARE you call her a "cow" and make negative comments about her need for a "pity party"… THIS IS WHY PPL HAVE ISSUES IS BECAUSE OF LAME PPL LIKE YOU!! are you serious for your comments?! why? So ppl in society can't win. You losers talk trash for celebs doing drugs and being dumb but yet the ones who do good and raise awareness get the same treatment. DO YOU HATE LIFE THAT BAD? WHATS WRONG WITH YOU MENTAL CASES?

    Another thing. She's talentless? Can you sing, write songs, and play several instruments? DEMI DOES ALL THREE WELL.

    Re: Heauio – Of course she has talent. But everyone who puts other people down will always draw this card 1st when trying to put them down. That being true it still doesnt hide the fact that many people are sick of hearing about her and her troubles, which of course were of great importance in helping her shoot to stardom when her career had basically stalled.

    im glad she keeps talking about it. its a serious problem in young women AND men. but its an issue that keeps getting pushed a side. people need to know they dont need to be a size 2 to be beautiful. healthy is beautiful.

    Re: Pansy Hunter – You are REALLY gonna say she's talentless? OK how bout you actually go watch some of her performances and then get back to me because then you'll know how stupid you sound.

    Demi is beautiful! Anybody who says she isn't is just jealous, and insecure about their own body. And for all you saying she's using this for fame and sympathy, and that's why she always talks about it, Shut UP! She continues to talk about it because she's being an amazing role model, being honest and not being ashamed. She has helped so many young girls and saved so many lives. She continues to share her story in hopes of inspiring other people to get help. She's said it herself, "I don't share my story to get sympathy. I don't want that. I'm not here to tell you my sob story, I'm here to tell you it get's easier." So lay off already!

    you were fat and bullied, you started puking to stay thin, you started cutting and got addicted to some shit and you still have problems, but you're clean now and want to help other little fat girls who cut and puke. we get it. it's been the same song and dance with you for almost 3 years, because you know if you didn't talk about it, you wouldn't be in the news and no one would give a damn about you. fuck off demi. you're no longer an inspiration. now you're just an annoyance.

    You haters are so ignorant. You people are saying she needs a diet? Bitch she isnt fat, she is normal, I dont want her to be stick thin becuase then most those girls out there who are having trouble half of them would probably commit suicide. You people should grow the fuck up.Admit it, 100% she has talent. She can sing perfect, she rights good songs,plays several instruments,ect.Thats talent, so you people saying she has none, need to accept the fact she is better than you.You people saying Demi is doing this for pitty she actaully isnt, she is just wanted to remind the girls/boys out there, that its okay to speak up, if she didnt remind them somepeople would forget, and probably commit suicide or would probably be in depression right now. You haters should do something better with your life, you people are the cuase of people being bulimic,self harm, suicide. Why cant you guys just accept the fact there different? If they where fat, who cares? Whats wrong with being fat? If they are different who cares? there happy, there not harming anyone, so shut the fuck up. Just remember, You're behing a computer screen hating, while Demi is up there living her dream, and saving girls lifes. So take a seat, and shut the fuck up, and be positive/nice about something for once

    Re: Lovatic – she weighs 143 lbs and is 5'2". So like it or not that is overweight. Which is funny since most people with anorexia usually stay a low weight before they blow up like this.
