Demi Lovato has asked fans to stop complimenting them on their weight loss, as it serves as a trigger.
The “Cool for the Summer” singer, who came out as non-binary last week and is in recovery from an eating disorder, posted on their Instagram Story on Saturday about being more than just a body.
“Idk 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,” Lovato, 28, wrote.
The “Dancing With the Devil” documentary subject, who now uses “they/them” pronouns, said statements about weight loss or gain can keep them up at night.
“If you don’t know someone’s history with food, please don’t comment on their body,” they continued. “Because even if your intention is pure, it might leave that person awake at 2am overthinking that statement.”
While they acknowledged that hearing compliments about their weight loss can feel good, the temporary elation becomes muted by the “loud ass eating disorder voice inside my head.”
The “Camp Rock” star said the compliments leave them wondering what people thought of their body before the weight loss.
“Moral of the story: I am more than the shell for my soul that is my body and everyday 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,” they wrote.
Lovato — who raised eyebrows in April when they called out a small frozen yogurt shop for selling sugar-free products — showed off their “accidental” weight loss in March.
“I don’t count calories anymore I don’t over exercise anymore I don’t restrict or purge And I especially I don’t live my life according to the diet culture . . . and I’ve actually lost weight,” they explained on social media.
“This is a different experience But I feel full Not of food But of divine wisdom and cosmic guidance Peace Serenity Joy And love,” they wrote.
