The star followed up with another video explaining her reasoning for the heath decision, sharing that she’d usually feel “afraid and ashamed” to share her experience with the 10-day detox “because I feel like as a big girl, people expect if you are doing something for health, you’re doing it for a dramatic weight loss, and that is not the case.”
“In reality, November stressed me the f— out,” she continued. “I drank a lot, I ate a lot of spicy things and things that f—ed my stomach up. I wanted to reverse it and get back to where I was. I’m so proud of myself. I’m proud of my results. My sleep has improved, my hydration, my inner peace, my mental stability, my f—ing body, my f—ing skin, the whites of my eyes, I feel and look like a bad b— — and that’s it.”
“I’m a big girl who did a smoothie detox and I wanted to share it with you guys,” she concluded, before adding, “And every big girl should do whatever the f— they want with their bodies.”

Following Lizzo’s post, a number of fans took to Twitter to support her, expressing frustration over the backlash the singer faces no matter what she decides to do.
you all lack basic empathy. imagine your body being the subject of constant critique and conversation. i hope lizzo is doing very well and is having a great day today.

Wait people are mad at @lizzo for dieting? Her message is body positivity, no matter the body. I’m a full sized lady who loves her music and feels empowered regardless if she is on a vegan/smoothie kick. She is a musician who doesn’t just exist to be my role model 🤷🏻♀️ #Lizzo pic.twitter.com/nBJwm6bxTR

The only thing Lizzo promotes is doing whatever the fuck you want to do with your body. Which is exactly what she did. She wanted to cleanse her system which is what a detox is. Y’all love reaching for shit especially when it comes to her. She owes us nothing. #Lizzo
