AceShowbiz - Eating disorder is an everyday battle for Demi Lovato, but she's lucky to have support from her loved ones. The former Disney star opens up that she nearly went back to rehab for eating disorder in 2013 but her boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama noticed the signs and got her back on the right track.
"It's been difficult. 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. Wilmer noticed and called me out on it, which was a relief," she tells Fitness magazine. "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."
She's learned to embrace her imperfections. "It helps to remind myself how far I've come. I recently saw pictures from my first tour, and I spent that whole summer performing in the heat in a red leather jacket because I was ashamed to show my arms. And that was when I was 105 pounds!" she says. "This tour, I've had the confidence to show my arms at every single concert. It may seem like a small thing, but for me, that's huge."
In addition to a balanced diet, she is also working out regularly. "My energy and endurance have gone way up," she explains. "I feel so much stronger, and I'm much healthier. Normally I'd get the flu, but this tour I've had only a small sinus infection - knock on wood."
"If Beyonce can do it, I can do it," says of her new motto. "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."
She also admires Kim Kardashian for being confident with her curvaceous figure. "Say what you will about the Kardashians, but they've really helped make curvy bodies beautiful again. It's so nice to look around and see women with hips and a butt, like Iggy Azalea and Jennifer Lopez," she says. "They have great figures, but you know they also work really hard for them and don't try to hide their curviness."
