Demi Lovato shares body positivity message, says she doesn't live her life according to 'diet culture'

Demi Lovato is done with diet culture.

The “I Love Me” singer opened up on Monday that she had lost a few pounds, which she says was not intentional. Taking to her Instagram, the 28-year-old artist posted a video of herself standing before a mirror and showing off her stretchy jeans.

“Accidentally lost weight,” wrote Demi. “I don’t count calories anymore. I don’t over exercise anymore. I don’t restrict or purge. And I especially don’t live my life accordingly to the diet culture … and I’ve actually lost weight.”

The Grammy nominee went on, “This is a different experience, but I feel full — not of food — but of divine wisdom and cosmic guidance.”

She signed off by wishing her fans “peace, serenity, joy, and love.”

Writing how she initially believed “recovery from an eating disorder wasn’t real” and that relapses were common, the “Anyone” singer celebrated her improved mental state and recovery process.

“I wanted to celebrate my stretch marks instead of being ashamed of them,” she wrote at the time. “My stretch marks aren’t going away so might as well throw a lil glitter on em’ amiright?”
