Demi Rose Shares Photo Of Herself At 80 Pounds, Opens Up About Eating Disorder

Demi Rose is so much more than an Instagram model for her 9 million followers to fawn over. She's a real person, with real feelings, who is opening up about battling an eating disorder when she was a teenager. The 24-year-old spoke out on her Instagram story Wednesday afternoon after a comment from a fan pushed her to speak out.

The British model noted that fans were asking in the comment section of her photos who her doctor was, which prompted her to share photos from her Instagram where she had the same curvy figure seven years ago. Demi is sometimes poked at in the comment section of her sexy posts, with trolls suggesting her body is fake and is not the results of hard work. In her Instagram story, and confirmed by The Daily Mail, the model explained how she battled an eating disorder, and how she overcame it and worked for the iconic body she now has.

Demi first shared a post from 2015, where she talked about her eating disorder with her followers. She didn't boast the 9 million fans she has today, and the post has gotten lost among hundreds of sexy images on her feed. In the throwback post, Demi shared a before and after of her body, where she only weighed 80 pounds in the former. The after-photo was from a year later, but Demi did not specify her weight in 2016.

Demi then encouraged anyone battling an eating disorder to message her for support. She admitted she once hated herself and promised she would never put herself through the situation again. The model became overwhelmed with responses and put another message on her Instagram story thanking everyone who reached out to her and promising she would respond if she could.
