Lizzo denies the idea that plus-sized people do weight training just to ‘get overweight’
Lizzo knows there’s more to living a healthy life than trying to lose weight.
In a new video posted earlier this week, the “Truth Hurts” singer responded to a TikTok user who expressed a desire to connect with other plus-size people who care about fitness and health, but that it was “getting away from obesity.” ‘It wasn’t for the sake of it.
“i know that [with] What I do is lose weight, but I’m not trying to avoid being overweight,” said TikTok user @tiffriahgrande.

“The emphasis is on ‘not trying to get away from the fat,’ which is tough,” Lizzo said in response.
The Grammy winner went on to explain that while he enjoys a physically demanding career, he never decided to work out to lose weight. Instead, she prioritizes her health and exercise to make her feel better.
“I have a very performative job. I have to choreograph, sing, dance, rap and play the flute for 90 minutes every night. And I wear very tight clothes. You have to wear it and express your emotions to the crowd and hype it up,” she said. “As I became more professional in my career, I took the physical part more seriously. I was crazy about crabs Overall Because when I say “I’m health conscious” it sounds very heavy. But I’m very holistic and very hippie dippy when it comes to food and supplements, I only care about my body and the environment. ”
Lizzo has since silenced the criticism that is often directed at people like her. “I think when people look at fat people like that, they immediately think that everything they’re doing is to lose weight. I’m not trying to lose weight. I don’t want to,” she said.
“If my body fluctuates from this size, will it be a little smaller by choice?” yes. I am used to fluctuations. But the goal is always here,” she added, pointing to her head. “Exercise helped change the mind, not the body. Your body will change forever until you stop, and it will continue to change, because you’ll turn to dust, but accepting the fact that your body changes is part of the change. is.”
