Demi Lovato: I Almost Went Back to Rehab for a Second Time
In her new interview with Fitness magazine, the “Neon Lights” singer reveals she almost went back to rehab for an eating disorder after she found herself straying from her healthy eating habits.
“I almost went back to rehab for my eating disorder last summer. I was obsessing over food and terrified of it at the same time,” she tells the publication. “Wilmer [Valderrama, her boyfriend] noticed and called me out on it, which was a relief. I was done being afraid of food and so tired of overeating and not knowing why I did it. Now I’m on a structured meal plan. I eat four small meals and two snacks a day. It’s teaching me portion control.”
“I used to Google things like ‘How to lose weight in a week,’ but the world just doesn’t work that way. If you want to lose weight, you’ve got to work for it. If you want to get stronger, you’ve got work for it. Any other way isn’t going to be healthy, and it’s not going to last,” she continues.
“My current life motto: ‘If Beyoncé can do it, I can do it.’ If she can work out, have the incredible body she has, have a kid, and be as successful as she is, then I sure as hell can, too.”
“We all have problem areas. I’m always going to have thick thighs. I can’t change that, and obsessing over it will only make me miserable,” she explain. “Learning to be grateful for our bodies and taking care of them are the best ways for us to empower ourselves physically, mentally, and spiritually.”
