Demi Lovato feels that she has had an eating disorder all her life.
The singer and actress, who was previously admitted to a treatment facility, thought she was fat back when she was still in nappies.
She said: “I think I was born with an eating disorder, because I’ve never had a relationship with food that was normal.
“I remember looking in the mirror with nappies on thinking, ‘You’re fat, change it’.
“I started overeating when I was about eight; I was a binge eater. I would bake a whole plate of cookies and eat them all. Then when I turned 12 I was bullied in school and they called me fat. I went from being an overeater to stopping eating and I lost about 30lb. From then on I continued undereating, but my weight plateaued.
“[Then] I started throwing up to lose weight.”
