- Lizzo is thought to have gone vegan in June 2020 and regularly shares her food on social media.
- Lizzo said she follows a plant-based diet because it makes her feel good, not to lose weight.
- “I try to keep everything I put in my body super clean,” she told Vanity Fair.
Lizzo isn’t vegan to lose weight, she follows a plant-based diet because it makes her feel good, she said.
The singer and entrepreneur told Vanity Fair that she leads a “very healthy lifestyle” both mentally and spiritually, and she prioritizes her health.
“I try to keep everything I put in my body super clean,” Lizzo said.
She eats foods like kale salads topped with onion, beans, corn, and avocado; Korean rice cakes with mushroom carrot sauce, and vegan mozzarella; and vegan chocolate, as Insider’s Canela López previously reported.
But her motivation has nothing to do with changing her weight, she told Vanity Fair.
“Health is something I prioritize, wherever that leads me physically. Like veganism, people were like, ‘You’re a vegan? What, are you deep frying the lettuce?’ I’m not a vegan to lose weight, I just feel better when I eat plants,” she said.
Lizzo added that she stress eats too, sometimes not realizing how much she’s eaten.
“Anything can be harmful, but it comforts me in a way,” she said.
Lizzo told Nasty Gal in 2017 that she was a vegetarian for seven years and a vegan for one when she lived in Minneapolis before she was famous.
She said she “really discovered my vegetarianism and my veganism there.”
