In a recent interview with MTV, Demi Lovato confessed that her eating disorder, which she continues to address daily, has made her rethink her career aspirations. She told Live From MTV, “I don't know If I'm going back to acting... I think someone that's recovering from an eating disorder can only be in front of the camera so much before it starts to play mind games."
Demi’s not the only one who has struggled with body issues. Recent studies have found that Latinas have eating disorders and body image concerns that are comparable to (or greater) than non-Latina whites. We encourage those who are struggling to seek help from a loved one or doctor. But know you’re not alone – here are 5 celebrities who have overcome eating disorders with help!
The X-Factor judge was treated in 2010 for “physical and emotional issues.” One of these issues was bulimia. As a contributing editor for Seventeen, the young star shared her experience with readers, hoping that they seek help as well. She wrote, “My eating disorder will continue to affect me for the rest of my life, but I'm proud to say that I got the help I needed, and am now the happiest and healthiest I have ever been!” Brava, Demi!
