Demi Lovato Talks Staying Healthy on Tour

Demi Lovato keeps it super candid in this recent interview with WebMD.

The 21-year-old opens up staying healthy on the road, how she dealt with her dad’s passing, and more. Check it:

On staying healthy: “I drink a ton of water, and I try to make sure I get plenty of sleep. It’s really hard to do that when you’re traveling and dealing with crazy time changes. If I’m having a hard time, I’ll go to the hotel gym and try to wear myself out. I’ve even brought a trainer/nutritionist on the road. He finds the health food stores in each city and buys sushi and salads. He also makes fresh juices with kale, spinach, ginger, and so forth to make sure I’m getting enough veggies every day.”

On coping with grief: “It was a very tough and sad moment in my life, but I’m dealing with it. My dad and I did not have the best relationship, but it was still so painful. He suffered from mental health issues — after he passed away, I realized he was never able to get the help he needed. I decided to start The Lovato Treatment Scholarship program [in partnership with CAST Recovery, a therapeutic outpatient organization]. My father no longer has the chance to get the help he needed, but it makes me feel better to offer help to others.”

On the scholarship: “The goal is to cover expenses for someone struggling with mental health and/or addiction issues, including the costs for one of CAST Recovery’s transitional living homes, plus clinical services provided at CAST’s outpatient program. I’ve struggled with mental health issues, so I truly know what’s at stake. Effective treatment is costly, and many can’t afford the care they need. I feel the most fulfilled when I can give back to others. It’s a really important part of my own recovery. I’ve been so lucky to work with CAST Recovery for the past couple years. They’ve taught me to deal with my own demons.”
