Jordan Younger is a heath blogger with a lot of Instagram followers. She was a vegan who posted recipes and meals, all free from animal products such as meat, dairy and eggs.
But recently, she made other vegans very angry because she gave up her vegan life style. She claimed just eating vegetables made her extremely sick, and that she lost her hair, her periods stopped coming and she was tired all the time.
She realised her obsession with eating healthy actually made her UN-healthy. (Oh the irony)
She claimed she became addicted to healthy foods and juice cleanses.
‘The obsession with my diet took up my every waking hour. It was stopping me from leading a normal life full of social activities and other interests,’
‘When my mom and sister were in town, I don’t think I enjoyed a single meal with them. I ate before or after seeing them, [because I] panicked that the food at the restaurants we were going to was going to make me feel like c**p and throw off my system.’
She now changed her website from the The Blonde Vegan to The Balanced Blonde.
Maybe we have to acknowledge the benefit of meat and protein in our diet, and the time to do that is NOW.
