She Has Worked Out Five Times a Week

"Well, I just do a workout online with my personal trainer," Allen has said. "And I do that five times a week." "Get at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity or 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity a week, or a combination of moderate and vigorous activity. The guidelines suggest that you spread out this exercise during the course of a week. To provide even greater health benefit and to assist with weight loss or maintaining weight loss, at least 300 minutes a week is recommended. But even small amounts of physical activity are helpful. Being active for short periods of time throughout the day can add up to provide health benefit," says the Mayo Clinic.

Allen sometimes struggled to eat while on tour. "I think it's touring and dancing and probably, you know, the not wanting to eat room service thing," she has said. "I don't really like food being mass produced, you look at those kitchens and they're huge just I don't like it." "Studies have shown small to moderate increases in some nutrients in organic produce. Organic produce may have more of certain antioxidants and types of flavonoids, which have antioxidant properties," says the Mayo Clinic. "The feeding requirements for organic farm animals (livestock) usually cause higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids. These include feeding cattle grass and alfalfa. Omega-3 fatty acids — a kind of fat — are more heart healthy than other fats. These higher omega-3 fatty acids are found in organic meats, dairy and eggs."

When one social media follower saw a photo of Allen and said:  "I feel like we've grown up together and I've never seen you this thin…Your fans care about you, your health, and we love you very much. Please take care dear ❤️❤️❤️," Allen responded with: "You've never seen me two years completely sober, not smoking, and exercising every day."

"There are several benefits to using TRX in your workout. Science proves that it is effective in increasing muscular strength! Here are a few that really stick out," says NIFS:

  • Incorporates nearly every muscle of the human body. If you have ever taken a class or done some of even the most basic exercises, you quickly see that core activation is one of the most important aspects.
  • The workouts are simple yet very challenging, and you can easily complete a total-body workout only using one piece of equipment in 20 minutes.
  • The straps are also very mobile, and you can take them outside or on the road. You can even attach them to the back of a hotel room door to get a workout!"


She Got Hooked on Adderall and Thankfully Was Able to Stop

"I was like 14 stone and just did not feel like a pop star at all," she told DJ Fat Tony on The Recovery podcast. "So I started taking this drug called Adderall, which is like speed, to lose the weight. And I got addicted to this drug because it made me invincible and I could work really long hours and be all the people I was required to be." She added: "I had never supported anyone so I was re-entering this phase of being a pop star again but not doing it on my terms any more. I was supporting this girl who was much younger and more attractive than I felt, and I just started acting out in all manner of ways." "As prescriptions for Adderall rise, so may its potential for diversion and nonmedical use, which increases its health risks too. Adderall is abused as a 'smart drug' across college campuses. It may be abused by students to combat pressures of higher education, as students perceive it will help them get better grades because they can stay up and study for longe," says American Addiction Centers.
