Lizzo has hit back at critics after sharing the results of her smoothie detox on Instagram, declaring: "I did not starve myself." 

People expressed their disappointment after Lizzo shared clips of her drinking only smoothies and juices over the last 10 days. They were upset to see her posting before and after photos showing her weight loss results. 

"I detoxed my body and I'm still fat. I love my body and I'm still fat. I'm beautiful and I'm still fat," Lizzo captioned a topless pic of herself in response. 

"These things are not mutually exclusive. To the people who look to me, please do not starve yourselves. I did not starve myself. I fed myself greens and water and fruit and protein and sunlight."

"I drank a lot, I ate a lot of spicy things and things that f**ked my stomach up. And I wanted to reverse it and get back to where I was," she said.

"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**kin' body, my f**kin' skin, the whites of my eyes.

"Like, I feel and look like a bad bitch. And that's it. I'm a big girl who did a smoothie detox. And I wanted to share that with you guys. I got exactly what I wanted out of it, and every big girl should do whatever the f**k they want with their body." 

Amen to that.
