I ‘am choosing not to diet’, Demi Lovato responds to fat-shamer.
Demi Lovato in a typical Demi fashion shares her educational and empowering message revealing her unconcerned nature towards dieting.
This response follows an incident earlier in the week where an Instagram user posted a paparazzi photo of Demi leaving the gym. The fan who goes by the username @selenuer later deleted the account, but prior to this tagged the singer and wrote, “hey demi dm me so we can discuss a diet plan for you.”
The outspoken star didn't hold back as she responded to the body-shamer writing, "I actually am choosing not to diet and fall back into unhealthy behaviors at the risk of losing my sanity or mental health but thank you for the offer! Super sweet."
Although it's easy to perceive her response as sarcastic, the heart emoji tends to suggest she's being sincere.
The 'Heart Attack' singer's always been unfazed to open up about her past struggles which ranges from bulimia to cutting to drug abuse.
Back in March, the 26-year-old singer posted a series of Instagram stories about the risks of diet culture following a headline which commented on her "fuller" body size.
“I am more than my weight,” she wrote. “Unlike the past, I’m not triggered, I’m not upset that someone wrote a headline about my ‘fuller figure.’ I’m angry that people think it’s OK to write headlines about people’s body shapes.”
Until last year, Lovato was sober for six years. However, this came to an end in July 2018 after she was hospitalized following a near-fatal overdose in her home. Demi was subsequently taken to an in-patient rehab center.
Lovato decided to work out as a means for her recovery. She is maintaining her health by attending regular boxing and MMA sessions at Unbreakable Center in L.A.
Previously in 2017, the pop star said she finds exercising "therapeutic". "I feel the most confident when I’m in the gym — whenever I’m training, whether it’s boxing, kickboxing, Muay Thai, jiu-jitsu."
