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!
Katie Couric had Demi Lovato on her show, Katie, recently where the beautiful X Factor judge opened up about her past with eating disorders and body image issues.
Then, Katie revealed a pretty shocking fact about herself… she too has suffered from an eating disorder, more specifically, bulimia.
"I wrestled with bulimia all through college and for two years after that. And I know this rigidity, this feeling that if you eat one thing that’s wrong, you’re full of self-loathing and then you punish yourself, whether it’s one cookie or a stick of gum that isn’t sugarless, that I would sometimes beat myself up for that."
What a painful and traumatic past.
Thankfully, she got over them and is now a healthier person. We hope that others can learn from her story.
