Demi Lovato has shown off her “no more dieting thighs” in a new photograph promoting body confidence.

The singer has shared a picture of herself posing on a swing bed dressed in an oversized black jacket and white ankle boots.

She captioned the shot: “These are what I call no more dieting thighs and I’m proud of them.”

Lovato added the hashtag “#thickthighssavelives”.

In the past she has spoken about the ongoing challenge of recovering from an eating disorder.

Earlier this year Lovato captioned an Instagram photo saying she did not like the way her legs looked but she was trying not to criticise herself.

She wrote: “So, I’m insecure about my legs in this picture but I’m posting it because I look so happy and this year I’ve decided I’m letting go of my perfectionism and embracing freedom from self criticism.

“Learning to love my body the way it is is challenging but life changing.

“Giving up my eating disorder has been the most challenging journey of my life but I work every day towards solid recovery even if I mess up sometimes.

“Today I’m feeling strong. You all can do it too. It IS possible. Thank you God for this new chapter in my life. #EDrecovery #happyAF”
