Although it's seldom, i still feel the pressure to conform in society, to shave my legs and underarms, to paint my face and look a certain way to others. This western self-obsession is a powerful dis-ease to shake. Some days i strut confidently, other days i pick at my insecurities, but everyday i move forward with strong purpose. I sometimes see that look of disgust from certain others at my hairy armpits and legs but i always remind myself - that person is NOT part of my tribe. Would i really want to spend my valuable time with someone who feels that way? About body hair? A person who thinks i'm disgusting as my natural self? Heck no! They can go fuck themselves. Free women remember, your body hair is a gift, it's protective and part of your being, but maybe best of all it's also a powerful natural fuckboi repellent.
Learn to love your bodyhair, yes including your leg hair in my new ebookMy Naked Lunchbox. Take a read and change your life forever.
Abbey Sharp is a Canadian Dietitian who reviews 'What I eat in a day' videos on YouTube, especially of vegans and of Freelee The Banana Girl's 'Raw Till 4 Diet'. As Freelee notes in today's video: Abbey Sharp has strategically positioned herself as an authority in the vegan movement; in order to sell her Mindful Glow CookBook and gain YouTube subscribers. Abbey Sharp the “health professional” is regularly sponsored by the meat and dairy industry, in particular by Maple Lodge farms (one of canada’s biggest chickens producers), Ontario pork and Dairy farmers of Canada. We can only imagine how much they are paying Abbey?
Stephanie buttermore just put out a “What Freelee eat in a Day” video so Freelee The Banana Girl is here to review it. Here is Stephanie's video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=coc5U-hHGYE If you haven’t seen Freelee’s prior videos on Stephanie Buttermore’s ALL IN approach, the things Freelee like about it but why it won’t work long term then watch the videos in the cards featured on the screen. Don’t forget if you want to lose weight and be healthy long term, yep, no more yo yoi’ng then check out the Raw Till 4 Diet, the ebook includes a 30 day meal planner, over 55 full color recipes, shopping lists, exercise plan, food pyramid, and more. Freelee has lost and maintained 40lb weight loss eating a high fruit and Raw Till 4 lifestyle. Link to her weight loss bundle is here: https://www.thebananagirl.com
Alright onto the video. Ugh whey protein powder, with the plethora of research against dairy Freelee can’t believe this stuff is still a thing. Let’s take a look at the protein powder Stephanie Buttermore is affiliated with. As we know Stephanie is a cancer research scientist who is passionate about helping women SURVIVE so she should be very clued up on what she is eating and recommending to hundreds of thousands of young women right? Freelee thinks making sure her recommendations are nontoxic to her audience is of course vital.
The brand Pescience uses clever marketing by including the word ‘science’ in their brand name; trying to associate themselves with an area synonymous with authority and credibility in a consumers eyes. When hey, it’s just a fitness supplement brand. Marketing 101. One thing important to note here is protein powder is the world’s most widely consumed supplement. It is number one in a billion dollar industry so the marketing budget is HUGE. This stuff is everywhere and you better believe it they are actively funding bogus studies.
The truth is you do NOT need 2000lb bovine secretion protein in your human body. It is a cheap cruel waste product of the dairy industry. The dairy industry basically found a way to offload their slops to uneducated humans for premium price. Let’s look closer at it. 1 scoop has 45mg cholesterol? There is no need to ingest cholesterol from a bovines mammary glands when the human body makes its own cholesterol safely. You are just adding toxic load to your bloodstream.
250mg of sodium in one scoop is actually a lot of unnecessary sodium which is of zero health benefit and is just going to contribute to the edema and fluid retention that Stephanie Buttermore has been experiencing. Remember when it comes to weight loss, the excess sodium affects overall potassium balance for the day. Aim to reach the RDI of potassium (4700mg) and you will likely see your weight loss accelerate as the increased potassium helps the body eliminate excess sodium. Just add 5 bananas to your diet and it will change your life.
So next we see whey and casein, which are proteins derived from cow’s milk. This is a huge red flag especially seeing Stephanie is a cancer researcher. Casein has been identified as a cancer-causing carcinogen. Dr Colin Campbell established a solid link between animal protein and cancer.
We next find artificial sweetener Acesulfame potassium which is 200 times sweeter than sugar. Freelee is surprised Stephanie is ingesting this rubbish. Not only may it contain a known carcinogen but this stuff can really disrupt metabolic processes and interfere with appetite regulation, body weight and blood sugar control. Obviously not good if you are trying to heal your extreme hunger. When you ingest these sweeteners your body and brain awaits glucose or fructose (which is energy) to hit the bloodstream, but it gets none. And then you wonder why you are ravenous later on or in coming days. just have the sugar!
Methylmercury in tuna and microplastics ingested en mass by the sealife then heated and eaten by you. The long term disease causing implications are serious. it’s toxic food, simply not safe for consumption. Low in carbs, low in life.

In today’s video Freelee talks briefly about qualifications she's received in the area of fitness and nutrition and why she ‘lied’ on National TV in 2016.
Freelee also talks more about response series she may be doing on her new channel. Freelee intends on continuing the ‘eveything wrong with ______ diet” series. Freelee also has many other ideas for videos but one in particular will be where Freelee critiques the recommendations of Dietitian’s and Dr’s. She will particularly focus on when they critique others like the Canadian Dietitian Abbey Sharp does because there is SO much bad advice it’s literally scary. Freelee will also consider addressing peoples assumptions and rumours about her. Because we all know there are many out there seeing Freelee is the one who popularised veganism on YouTube. Lettuce know in the comments if you want to see that.
Freelee started her new channel due to the updated YouTube algorithm or AI (artificial intelligence) actively suppressing videos on her main channel. According to the analytics on her main channel her videos are getting suggested nowhere except on her own videos which everyone knows is useless if you want to reach a new audience. Also subscribers don’t really matter anymore as YouTube now decides which subscribers sees what videos, regardless of whether viewers want to see your vids or not. If you have particularly controversial content like Freelee does then this is particularly a problem on YouTube these days. Freelee also has an auto unsubscribe ‘bug’ on her channel that sometimes unsubscribes users up to 8 times. Freelee is hoping this channel can free her from that. Her videos are no longer being suggested except on her own videos hence why Freelee is being dominated by the Dietitian, Abbey Sharp.
So as you can see Freelee called her new channel “The womens weight loss expert” Is it because freelee is ‘obsessed with weight loss’? No. Of course not. Freelee is all about health and well being, however, Freelee knows that most of the female demographic on YouTube wants to lose weight and are being sucked in by these duplicitous diet hucksters who are peddling unhealthy fad diets. This is close to Freelee’s heart. Freelee has also come from a past of ED and constant weight battles herself and like Freelee has said before; animal liberation and female liberation is basically her life’s work. It’s why freelee is here on YouTube, it’s why freelee is still doing what she is doing after over a decade on YouTube after so many have dropped off veganism.
Is Freelee an expert in the field of weight loss? Absolutely. The definition on an Expert is a person who is very knowledgeable about or skilful in a particular area. Freelee has received hundreds of weight loss and health testimonials over the years in addition to her own weight loss results. Results that she has maintained without caffeine, calorie restriction, diet pills or over exercising. So it’s safe to say YES this is one of her areas of expertise. Freelee is not going to hide the fact that she want to attract women wanting to lose weight to veganism. She wants to help get them off the diet merry go round forever and onto a healthy cruelty-free lifestyle. However, Freelee is not offering a quick fix or one that includes animal products so she is often hated for her approach. Freelee understand not everyone wants to eat Raw till 4 style and that’s why she is also supportive of a cooked high carb vegan approach.
So lets get onto her ‘lies’. Back in 2016 as a lot of you know Raw till 4 went viral amongst young females on YouTube and Freelee was getting some great coverage on National TV in Australia. In one appearance Freelee had a debate with a Dietitian. By the way yes Freelee will be responding to that meat and dairy pushing Dietitian, Abbey sharp who keeps getting suggested non stop just because she successfully rode the Raw till 4 and Freelee SEO wagon. Yes search engine optimisation, you can look it up. But that’s another vid.
So the interviewer David Campbell (who actually went vegan and lost a tonne of weight soon after) put Freelee on the spot so she had to stop and think for a moment. And you will notice in the interview Freelee looked a little unsure when she said “Australian Institute of Fitness” and the reason Freelee was unsure was because it was 11 years earlier. And rightfully so the Dean of the Institute came out and said Freelee had never studied at his institute and he was right Freelee hadn’t. She had meant to say “The Fitness Institute of Australia” not the “Australian Institute of Fitness”. Freelee thinks most people can grasp how easy it would be to mix up the two colleges seeing they both sound so similar. Since then people have been spreading around that freelee is a fraud that she never studied Nutrition or Fitness whatsoever. The reason Freelee didn’t refute this straight away is because she simply didn’t have a copy of her certification as it was in her mums closet who she wasn’t seeing regularly at the time. Luckily, after 11 years her mum still kept them.
But before this way back in 2000, yes 19 years ago when Freelee was 20 (when some of you were not even born yet) Freelee was already passionate about nutrition and actually wanted to become a dietitian. You have to understand Freelee has been at this for a long long time. She has been studying nutrition non-stop since she was in her late teens and that’s why she has the lean healthy results that she does. Freelee didn’t stop until she found the answer to a permanent lean healthy body.
So Freelee enrolled in College and was doing certificate 3 in Dietary Practices but pulled out because it was just unacceptable. Her teacher was not only obese but quite clueless. When a student asked questions the teacher often had to stop the flow of the class to look up the answer in a textbook. And then the answers… they disappointed Freelee even more! Post-op heart attack patients recommended a diet including processed meat. Maybe that’s changed in the past decade but Freelee highly doubts it. At this stage Freelee was already somewhat clued up about healthy eating form her own research and knew this was rubbish. This was just one example of why Freelee pulled out however at the time she did soldier on and completed the nutrition module. Freelee didn’t want to spend her time memorising misinformation. Next Freelee inquired at a Naturopathy school in the city of Sydney. Her mum came with her. It was even worse, all the staff, yes ALL were ranging from obese to morbidly obese, the actual director of the college being the morbidly obese one. Freelee’s mum can confirm this. Both Freelee and her mum concluded these people obviously did not understand nutrition. So eventually Freelee started her own personal training business and that’s where Freelee became accredited.
So there you go, the only discrepancy here was where Freelee said ‘advanced nutrition’ after her initial statement of ‘certification in nutrition’. Advanced certification was for aerobic conditioning and resistance training so that was a fair mistake. Remember it was 11 years earlier. When you are on national TV there is no time to think, the TV station also had one of her videos playing in her ear during the interview which was extremely distracting Freelee was in a dark room without any screen and only ear buds so she couldn’t even see who she was talking to. She is surprised she did as well as she did.
So that’s the truth of the situation, as you can see there was no intention to mislead, just honest mistakes on Freelee’s behalf which she has now clarified. So yes Freelee has studied nutrition and fitness extensively. This course in particular took her around a year to complete and although Freelee was working at the same time she found it intense. It was not a walk in the park and no Freelee doesn’t use the nutritional information she studied in her recommendations because it is JUST PLAIN WRONG and based on food lobbyist recommendations . If Freelee did then she would still be overweight and unhealthy like Freelee used to be.
