This is the full interview from the Daily Mail article regarding Freelee's COVID-19 video removed from YouTube. The Daily Mail somewhat misrepresented Freelee and she wants to share the full interview for clarity and transparency. 

--------------------------------------------

Hi Freelee,

Thanks for getting back to me.

My deadlines are pretty tight so the toilet paper story was published yesterday evening, but I watched the video you linked and I’d love to ask you some questions about that if you have a minute today.

I’m specifically interested in your food supply and the new world order you spoke about near the end.

Apologies if some of the questions below are too personal – I’m trying to get an image of how you live, and how others could expect to replicate the lifestyle.

Q. Where do you live and how much land do you have? How much did you pay for it?

I live in North Queensland, Australia. We have a couple of acres where we are establishing an epic food forest. We paid less than the average unit or house price in Brisbane. 

Rural land is very cheap compared to urban and attainable for most people. 

Q. How much food do you grow, what are you growing, and how long will it last?

We have planted hundreds of different fruit trees like mango, durian, mangosteen and jackfruit to name a few common ones. These trees bear fruit at different times during the year which means an all-year-round supply of fruit. We also have a wide variety of leafy greens and root vegetables that are well-suited to our environment. We store very little food in the freezer or cupboard as we harvest on demand and any time of the year we can harvest foods such as cassava and bananas to satisfy our needs. Once it's mature this system will sustain us for the rest of our lives.

Q. Do you buy food from the supermarket at all?

We avoid going to do the supermarket and prefer local farmers markets instead. We could survive on what grows in the food forest but we also like to buy food that might not be in season or we simply have none to harvest at the time. Some foods are not suitable to grow here such as dates so we do buy them. We also trade produce with local farms. Our long term goal is to live off the land. 

Q. How much do you spend on groceries per month?

The amount we spend on groceries varies as some preferred fruit is seasonal and we are only in the early stages of establishing a food forest. At the present time, we are only eating raw fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds so we only buy that. We are saving around $150-$200 per week compared to when we were living in the city, without a food forest.  

Q. Do you think this way of living is achievable for everyone?

Yes. Our ancestors did and a large percentage of the world's population already lives off-the-land in rural areas.  

Q. How would people who work a traditional 9-5 job, for example, achieve this?

Planting trees gives exponential return so even a couple of hours of work a week will reduce food costs in the future and increase food security for any family By planting trees etc you create valuable assets for the future, obviously, we cannot eat money and food prices in Australia are ridiculously high already. The question is; Why are people still on the 9-5 slave grind? I gave that up over 17 years ago. If people stop buying so many useless products and paying crazy rent prices then they can also save money and buy land themselves.

Q. Can you explain the new world order a bit? What do you foresee happening? How can people avoid the repercussions you mentioned?

The New World Order is a system of global government where a small group of non-elected people (elitists, bankers, corporations) write the rules and give the orders.

The United Nations and the WHO, for example, are some organisations that influence policy-making in countries worldwide where they are NOT elected by the people, this is obviously a problem. 

If we, the people, don't act soon, we will be heading for the following: cashless society, social credit system, unjustified restriction of movement, unnecessary surveillance, food scarcity, the elimination of small and medium businesses. People must go vegan, move off-grid, establish a food forest and educate themselves on law and history.

Q. Why wouldn’t you get the COVID-19 vaccine if there was one?

I will not be taking any vaccines because according to the US senate vaccines are "unavoidably unsafe" and have serious side effects. I will not willingly inject a toxic substance into my body.

My high fruit vegan diet and off-grid lifestyle is keeping me perfectly healthy and strong. 

Q. Why did YouTube delete the video?

The video was removed from youtube after reaching about 46,367 views because it was deemed "inappropriate content".  The thing is, there are still many other videos on youtube with millions of views that were far more "controversial" than my video so it makes no sense and is unfair that my video was removed. 

Here is the original video link: https://youtu.be/61DESqSLJPs

Please share the re-uploaded video in your article: https://www.bitchute.com/video/8enLZzgQMkQS/

Thank you :) Can you please link back to my youtube channel in the article thanks: https://www.youtube.com/freeleethebananagirl

I also have a new channel you may be interested in where I call out snake-oil supplement-pushing YouTubers.

Australians, stop cooking our country with your sausage sizzle!

Posted by Freelee The Banana Girl on

Bushfires have always been a part of Australian life. As a young girl living in QLD, I was often glued to the news watching wildfires rip through people's homes. Kangaroos darted across the screen, as cattle ran circles, and koalas clung to fire-fighters. “ugh why is Australia so dry, why does this keep happening??” I would ponder. I felt helpless. I donated the precious $2 I made from shovelling horse manure to relief efforts. This gave me some comfort. Next, came the floods. Animals, people's homes and land were now engulfed by an inland sea. It was like an outpouring of tears from Mother Nature. None of this made any sense to me. All I knew is that this was Australia. Fires and floods were normal. And soon I forgot all about the people's homes, the animals, and the destruction. I had to worry about myself after all and truth is, I was often happy it flooded because the school bus couldn’t get through and I got to stay home.

Fast forward to November 2019.

It’s been 30 years since that day I gave away my horse manure pennies to the fire relief. I now live in a wet tropical rainforest in Australia. It’s monsoon season here and pouring rain as I make this video. One day back in November I took a trip to visit my mum who lives in Northern NSW. Towards the end of my trip, the sun turned a deep red. The air became heavy with smog. Australia was burning, again, but this time more ferocious than ever. These fires are different, even more brutal, unrelenting, and hellish.  I felt sick. I saw horses running circles in a fenced paddock calling out in fear as a wall of fire bore down on them. Tears rolled down my face. I grew up with horses; they are amazing animals; they were my friends. The horse keeper also cried saying there was nothing she could do. It was heartbreaking. The horses burned to death.

A friend lost her house in the blaze but thankfully she and her family were fine. She was forced to live on the beach. For the first time in years I became obsessed with news updates. “Risk of mega-fire coming as 11 million hectares are burned”, “Smoke from Australian bushfires seen from space”, “death toll rises to 28 as fire destroys 500 homes”, “Over 1 billion animals killed in bushfires”…1 billion animals. Let's just take a moment for that to sink in. That is like the whole human population of china being burned to death. Do you have a pet? Well, that’s like the entire world's population of dogs being wiped out, including yours. Gone forever. Look, this is not ok. Obviously, any sane human is disturbed by these figures and wants to stop this occurring.

Amidst the carnage locals have been amazing rescuing animals, doing food drops, hydrating koalas, I feel proud to see this level of caring for non-human animals. But, then, I feel engulfed with frustration. I can’t help it. The hypocrisy is too strong. The fact is, these caring people will then go home to eat other animals. As a global population, every 2 days humans collectively eat 2 billion animals (double that of the fires) when let's be honest, they can just live on plant foods instead. It’s disturbing, to say the least. Bunnings, for instance, a hardware giant in Australia thought it was a good idea to put on a sausage sizzle in aid of the bushfires. A vegan rightfully called them out. Think about it. That's like me selling bullets to raise funds for the victims of school shootings. Ridiculous.

Australian meat-heavy diet is causing the bushfires

Look, Im not going to sugar coat this for you. I’m here to deliver an urgent message. If you eat animals, you are a big part of why my homeland, Australia, is on fire, and you don’t have to be. 

I’m sure you will agree, that most people, including yourself, are biophilic and don’t want to live in a dried up, lifeless wasteland, am I right? I know I don’t want to. So tell me then, why do you eat in a way that creates this hell on earth? When all you have to do is to buy the tofurkey at the grocery store instead of the turkey. Or nut milk instead of cow milk. Or plant-based burgers instead of meat-based? Or load up on rice, pasta, potatoes, bananas and beans. Some of the cheapest foods on the planet. Because as of now, 60% of Australia's entire land area is used to graze animals because you fear an imaginary protein deficiency. Or because you don’t like the taste of tofu or soy milk. Honestly, it’s pathetic.

The United Nations is telling us, we gotta change, meat consumption must decrease by as much as 90% in order for us to avoid the most catastrophic effects of climate change. Yes, we are heading for doomsday because you still want to eat like a barbarian. Look, I’m giving you a prior heads up. Veganism isn’t some fad diet. It’s a revolutionary act. Veganism is the future and quite frankly your lack of awareness and commitment is holding up important progress. It’s embarrassing that you are falling behind like this and there is a word for it: laggard. If you still eat animals and their secretions in 2020, you are a laggard. A slacker. Basically, a lazybones. And I too used to be an animal-loving-eating laggardian hypocrite. But I made the change 13 years ago this month and I haven’t looked back. 


Australia is on fire, and meat, dairy and eggs is the fuel. Every time you line up at coles or Woolworths and pay for meat, dairy and eggs you throw petrol on your backyard fires. Scientists confirm that Global warming is a major contributor of the Aussie bushfires. The carbon emissions from all the world’s planes, trucks, ships, and cars are equal to the emissions from animal agriculture. If you truly care about climate change, then you would change your diet immediately, as a very first step. It’s that simple. Your diet is not only killing individual non-human animals but also a major cause of climate change. Going vegan requires no governmental initiative, it doesn’t matter which politician you vote for; because you vote with your dollar. EASY. And each day, a person who eats a vegan diet saves 1,100 gallons of water, 45 pounds of grain, 30 sq ft of forested land, 20 lbs CO2 equivalent, and at least one animal’s life.

A vegan diet saves water


Take the Amazon, for instance, most fires in the Amazon have been lit to clear land for cattle. Last year the country raked in over 6 billion dollars in cow flesh export revenue, the highest in history. The burning will not end until your flesh-fetish ends. Australian fires have burned almost twice as much land as the 2019 Amazon fires, and guess what is going straight onto that land? Cattle. Not trees. Because they make the most money for the country. 

Livestock now covers 45% of the earth’s total land. Cows are literally eating the planet. 2019 was the hottest year in Australian history and the second hottest year in the world. Longer and hotter summers are yet to come. Australia is experiencing more extreme heat and longer fire seasons because of increasing greenhouse gas emissions. That will mean more extreme fire weather days - up to 300 per cent more by 2050 compared to the climate in the last decades of the last century.

A whole family can feed themselves year-round with a thriving food forest on the same amount of land that it takes to feed one cow. (2-5 acres) of land are used per cow.  Global warming is one of the greatest challenges facing the world and Australia is particularly vulnerable, having "exceptional sensitivity to climate change”.

In the past 20 years, 9 million hectares of land have been cleared in my homeland of Australia. 93% of the clearing was to establish pasture for livestock grazing. Most of the land cleared was primary forest. Over 90% of the Amazon rainforest that’s been cleared since 1970 is used for meat production, either for grazing or for growing food for cattle. 

So, please stop embarrassing the human species by continuing to eat animals instead of plants. Wake up and smell the carcass. You are burning Australia. If you would like to donate to the Australian fires then this is the most powerful thing you can do - GO VEGAN.

The Keto Diet Truth: What they don't tell you.

Posted by Freelee The Banana Girl on

THE KETO DIET:
What they don’t want you to know.

It seems like everywhere we look on YouTube these days, someone is trying the Keto Diet - from beauty bloggers to gamers. Plant-based keto is even on the rise. Keto interest online is at an all-time high. There are Doctors recommending the diet to patients and media dietitians like Abbey Sharp making keto-friendly baby meals. Promoters of the keto diet promise that the more bacon, cheese, eggs, and animal fat we eat, the slimmer we get. But how? Ketosis. That’s the ticket. 

After a morning of intermittent fasting, dieters cling to their bulletproof coffees as they plan out their low carb meals and food list for the day. Their keto-cheat sheet includes meals like low carb fried mac and cheese, keto pepperoni pizza, bacon breakfast bagels, keto buffalo chicken crust pizza. Rice, pasta, potatoes, fruit are a no-go. Carbohydrates are fattening. Butter is better. Dieters relish these calorie-rich dishes as the number on the scales drops. Before long, they experience the ‘keto flu’. Feeling tired is normal. Expect weekly bowel movements. There are many claims made by proponents of the keto diet but what does the science say? Is it healthy and safe to be in a state of ketosis? Can I do the keto diet for life? Today we will dive deep into what the keto diet is and whether it is healthy or effective for long term weight loss. Today I will share with you what the keto diet advocates don’t tell you.

So, what is the Keto Diet? What does keto even mean? 

The keto diet is a very low-carb diet that forces the body to use fat as fuel rather than carbohydrates. Unlike other low-carb diets, like the paleo diet, which focus on protein, a keto plan centres around fat, which supplies as much as 85% of daily calories. The diet includes liberal amounts of meats, including processed meats, sausages, eggs, cheeses, fish, nuts, butter, oils, seeds, and some fibrous vegetables. The average American gets over 50% of their daily calories from carbohydrates. The body breaks these incoming carbohydrates down into glucose molecules to use as fuel. Carbohydrate-rich food examples that dieters must eliminate or drastically restrict on a keto diet are fruits, sugar, bread, rice, pasta, potatoes. Keto dieters must eat fewer than 20- 50 grams of carbohydrates per day to reach a state of ketosis. This takes around 3-4 days to achieve. During this time the individual may experience lethargy, irritability, dehydration, and challenging bowel movements. 

What is ketosis? 

To move forward with awareness, we must first understand the importance of glucose in our human bodies. Every one of the trillions of cells in our body is fuelled by simple sugar aka glucose which is a sugar molecule derived from carbohydrates. We can also derive glucose from protein and fat via an energy-inefficient multi-step process called Gluconeogenesis (the creation of new sugar). Your brain is particularly hungry for sugars and uses a whopping 25% of your circulating glucose. In a healthy state, glucose is the body and brains preferred fuel source. That’s why humans have such an intense ‘sweet tooth’. This is a natural trait amongst all frugivorous primates’ such as gorillas, orangutans, chimpanzees, and bonobos.

When we stop eating all or most carbohydrates like fruit, bread, potatoes, rice, pasta then we force our bodies to use stored glucose in our liver and muscles (called glycogen) to replace the lack of carbohydrates we are eating. Yes, your body is so cool that it literally has a backup of instantly usable sugar to help keep you alive and healthy. And for every 1 gram of glucose stored in the body, we also store around 2.8 grams of water. Our body releases this healthy hydration once our body burns up its stored glucose reserves. Once all our glucose is used up, then our body also stops storing the associated water weight. This results in instant weight loss. Keto dieters celebrate this temporary ‘win’ as a sign of the diet working. After 3-4 days on the keto diet the lack of incoming carbs forces our body and brain to burn its non-preferred back up fuel source—fat. This is a crisis state that kicks in to save our life in case of starvation. Your body then creates emergency fuel via the liver breaking down fat which results in the production of ketone bodies. This leads to an influx of ketones in the blood which as we will discuss soon, is dangerous long term.  Proponents sell dieters the idea that if they stop eating carbohydrates, they will start burning body fat effortlessly and they will reach their desired weight. But, is it that easy?

Why do people lose weight initially on the Keto diet?

Keto dieters lose weight through calorie restriction, a lack of appetite due to illness and dehydration. It’s that simple. The average person’s body stores around 300 grams of glucose so with the addition of the associated water loss we will lose around 2.2 lbs of weight on the scales within a few days. Keep in mind this is glucose and water weight. Continued weight loss after this is a percentage of fat and protein and a large percentage of water loss. In a state of Ketosis, dieters lose their appetite because of the ketones in the blood causing nausea, fatigue and low appetite. The body is in a state of illness as high levels of ketones begin to poison the blood.  These ketones cause a strong diuretic effect on dieters kidneys causing them to release even more water weight or hydration. At this point, they are very dehydrated. 

During this time because of an obvious lack of overall calories, in particular, carbohydrates, dieter's will feel weak hence why keto dieters become addicted to stimulants like bulletproof coffee. Caffeine dependency is the first sign of a failing diet.  This lack of appetite associated with the ketones is eventually overridden by the brain’s survival instinct. To increase energy levels dieters reach for the caffeine and artificial sweetener but their brain cannot derive any glucose from these substances so before long they ‘binge-out’ out on carbohydrate-rich foods. This is not a sign of weakness or lack of discipline on the dieters behalf but the brain overriding the human ego and preventing death from starvation.  Dieter's then gain back the glucose, water and any fat loss but now have the addition of a ravenous ‘extreme hunger’ as Stephanie buttermore puts it from the forced calorie deficit. Dieter's then you go ‘all in’ and end up gaining even more fat as their body holds onto the fat in case of another future keto-famine. They then restrict again and the cycle continues, and for some, it never ends. 

Ketoacidosis on the Keto Diet may also result. Ketoacidosis may be more common in diabetics, however, a lack of glucose can force the body into ketogenesis causing metabolic acidosis. Ketogenic diets like low carbohydrate, high fat can induce ketoacidosis. Also, when it comes to keto and type 2 diabetes risk (due to increased risk of insulin resistance) the keto diet can lead to type 2 diabetes which, yes, can lead to ketoacidosis. Over 100 million Americans are diabetic and prediabetic. "Epidemiological studies indicate that “subjects with higher intakes of fat are more prone to develop disturbances in glucose metabolism, type 2 diabetes or impaired glucose tolerance, than subjects with lower intakes of fat.” Additionally, experimental studies clearly demonstrated that diets high in fat impaired insulin sensitivity, while diets low in fat but high in carbohydrates improved it."
https://nutritionstudies.org/can-the-ketogenic-diet-reverse-type-2-diabetes/#cite-note-16

“We report on a 51-year-old white woman who does not have diabetes but had ketoacidosis while consuming a “no-carbohydrate” diet. There was no family history of diabetes, and she was not currently taking any medications. While adhering to a regimen of carbohydrate restriction, she reached a stable weight of 59.1 kg, a decrease from 72.7 kg. After several months of stable weight, she was admitted to the hospital four times with vomiting but without abdominal pain. On each occasion, she reported no alcohol.”

More dangers the promoters of the Keto Diet don’t tell you:

Your risk of all mortality and cardio vascular disease increase:
Science demonstrates that a high intake of red meat increases ones risk of all-cause and CVD mortality. The increased risks were consistently observed in participants with low, medium, and high fruit and veg consumption. So, the risk is still high if you eat a diet high in fruits and veggies in addition to a high intake of meat. So we cannot protect ourselves with fruit and veg consumption if we still eat high quantities of meat. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27557655

We are at an increased risk of parasites from eating raw or undercooked salmon, anisakid nematodes and also tape worm. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9501379

"Few human studies on the effects of a ketogenic diet on performance have yielded positive results, and most studies have yielded equivocal or null results, and a few negative results. " https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28599043

Short-term low-carbohydrate, ketogenic diets reduce exercise performance in activities that heavily depend on anaerobic energy systems. These findings have clear performance implications for athletes, especially for high-intensity, short duration activities and sports" https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29619799

There have been several reports about renal calculi developing in children on the ketogenic diet since the first report more than 30 years ago. The prevalence of renal caculi in people on the ketogenic diet is up to 10%, compared with 1 in several thousand in the general population.  Chronic acidosis, dehydration, low urine pH, and fat malabsorption all contribute to the formation of uric acid and calcium oxalate stones. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2852806/

“Studies in the New England Journal of Medicine found that most of the weight one initially lost while following Atkins was water weight; and subjects who followed the diet typically gained back any lost weight in six months"
https://www.nytimes.com/2003/05/27/health/personal-health-pounds-lost-on-atkins-diet-may-quickly-return.html

The metabolic adaptation to the KD involves a shift from use of carbohydrates to lipids as the primary energy source. As such, a patient with a disorder of fat metabolism might develop a devastating catabolic crisis (i.e., coma, death) in the setting of fasting or a KD. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5664869/

Some short-term effects:
Nausea/vomiting, Constipation ,Dehydration, Anorexia, Lethargy, Hypoglycemia, Acidosis.

After running through the adverse effects associated with ketosis, the American institute for Cancer Research wrote, “those are the short-term effects. The long-term effects are even more dire."  Additional diseases and problems brought on by this deadly diet, include: 

* Malnutrition (compromised vitamin and mineral intake). 
* Cancer, stroke, gout, osteoporosis, and diabetes. 
* Potential kidney, bone, liver, and cholesterol abnormalities. 
* Cardiac disease, arrhythmias, contractile function impairment. 
* Impairment of physical activity. 
* A rise in blood pressure with age. 
* Rapid falling blood pressure upon standing (orthostatic hypotension). 
* Sudden death 

Low carbohydrate, high-fat dietary programs are shown to result in weight loss due to appetite-suppressing high blood levels of hydroxybutyrate (a ketone satiety trigger). http://www.ccjm.org/pdffiles/Volek1102.pdf

Dieters bodily functions start to slow right down in order for the brain and body to conserve energy (as there is little to no carbohydrate coming in).

So, as you’ve just found out, not only is the keto diet unsafe and unhealthy but ineffective for long term weight loss. Weight loss is temporarily achieved through depletion and starvation and for that reason no human can healthfully stay in a state of ketosis, long term. Short term is even extremely difficult and as you have learned, unhealthy. Humans are naturally high carbohydrate creatures, not low carb. As stated, the frugivorous human brain requires a steady supply of glucose from the consumption of simple sugars to maintain bodily homeostasis.

I call the Keto Diet a low life diet because, well, carbs are LIFE. Without them you will become sick, and everytime you omit them you increase your risk of premature death.
