Just an introduction to freelee the banana girl. She is famous on all forms of social media including youtube, instagram and facebook for her self-proclaimed amazing raw till 4 diet. This means that she can only eat raw fruits and veggies until 4 in the afternoon, then she will eat a cooked dinner of some form of carbohydrate and veggies. She is a vegan and many of her videos aim to educate people on the harsh realities of eating meat and dairy products.
Now, I myself am not a vegan nor do I do this Raw till 4 diet (yet- I may try it one day), but I do like watching her motivational videos to get fit! Her vlogs are my favourites and find her most inspirational. Some of her views/ideas are controversial but I think that’s what makes her great and her body shows the results of the diet.
Yesterday (03/09/14) I attempted the raw till four diet for the first time. I found it great, but I didn’t eat anywhere near the portion sizes that she chooses to eat daily. My body doesn’t need it and that’s where mine and her bodies differ. I do agree with her on many things surrounding the dairy industry and since watching her video on milk and how it is actually a form of pus- I now, NEVER drink it. I took a sip of it by accident, thinking it was a bottle of orange juice from the fridge and spat it out. That’s how much I don’t like it. I will do another blog tomorrow on what food I used to eat all the time and now never do.
Yesterday was in fact the first time I have eaten a banana in over a year! As I am aware of many differing views surrounding them, I never knew whether to eat them or not. Freelee raves about them, I am not so keen/sure. What’re your views?
