Lizzo, who has become a spokesperson for body positivity explained that November was a really hard month in her life. "In reality November stressed me the (expletive) out. I drank a lot. I ate a lot of spicy things that messed up my stomach up & I wanted to reverse that and get back to where I was," she said on her Instagram stories.

"So I did the 10-day smoothie detox, and you know normally I would be so afraid and ashamed to post things like this online because I feel like as a big girl people just expect that if you are doing something for health you are doing it for a dramatic weight loss and that is not the case," she added.

The Good As Hell songstress explained some days were tougher than others:  "It wasn't easy, right here was the hardest -- days four, five and six. It started to get to me mentally. I was never super hungry. I just wanted to stress eat and do things that were kind of self-harming," she admitted.
