Demi Lovato “complimenting someone on their weight loss can be as harmful as complimenting someone on their weight gain”

In a message posted to Instagram, Demi Lovato wrote

“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.”

“If you don’t know someone’s history with food, please don’t comment on their body. Because even if your intention is pure, it might leave that person awake at 2 am overthinking that statement,” she added.

Last week, Singer Demi Lovato has surprised fans by identifying as nonbinary and announcing she’d like to be referred to by new pronouns.

Lovato wrote in a series of tweets.

Every day we wake up, we are given another opportunity & chance to be who we want & wish to be. I’ve spent the majority of my life growing in front of all of you… you’ve seen the good, the bad, & everything in between.

Not only has my life been a journey for myself, I was also living for those on the other side of the cameras.

Today is a day I’m so happy to share more of my life with you all- I am proud to let you know that I identify as non-binary & will officially be changing my pronouns to they/them moving forward

This has come after a lot of healing & self-reflective work. I’m still learning & coming into myself, & I don’t claim to be an expert or a spokesperson. Sharing this with you now opens another level of vulnerability for me.

I’m doing this for those out there that haven’t been able to share who they truly are with their loved ones. Please keep living in your truths & know I am sending so much love your way xox
