Demi Lovato has spoken to Seventeen about her battle with an eating disorder, which is why she sought treatment in rehab last year.
"I don't think there's going to be a day when I don't think about food or my body, but I'm living with it, and I wish I could tell young girls to find their safe place and stay with it," said the Disney star.
"There have been times when I definitely have been tempted to get rid of my dinner," the 18-year-old Lovato also said. "I will deal with it for the rest of my life because it's a life-long disease."
She also offered a very wise nugget of information to other young women struggling with body image issues: "It's very crucial that you get your feelings out – but don't ever inflict harm on your own body because your body is so sacred."
