VIDEO: Ex-Vegan Influencer Angers Followers After Eating Carnivore Diet for 30 Days

Alyse Parker, a social media influencer with over 700k YouTube followers angered several fans after she chose to try the “Carnivore” meat and eggs only diet for 30 days.

Parker made it clear she was approaching the diet as a experiment as she has also challenged herself to multiple other 30 day experiments.

To her surprise, Parker documents in the video that she feels healthy and with high mental clarity on her diet.

After the 30 days are over, she says she eat other foods she misses but will mostly eat animal products from now on.

WATCH:

Many of the comments on her YouTube channel were negative,

Hannah Stevenon wrote “My jaw dropped when I saw this video was YOU!!!”

Jesse Wilson wrote “Makes me so sad 😞”

JennyH wrote “Throwing a video like that in a mostly vegan community who watches you just seems like a bad idea 🤦‍♀️ withe everything that’s going on right now, climate strikes, animal agriculture having such a huge influence on the future of our earth this video just seems careless and pretentious”

Alyce responded to the drama in an Instagram post:

By this point, you probably know that I looove trying new things, running little experiments, and diving into challenges of all sorts.⁣

Some of the experiments I have run in the past…👩🏼‍🔬⁣
– 30 days without shampoo⁣
– 1 year without deodorant ⁣
– 21 days of only fruit juice⁣
– 30 days without social media⁣
– 3 YEARS of not shaving my armpits, not wearing makeup, not using heat on my hair.. Etc. etc. you get da point 👌🏽⁣

Yehhh — some may call me crazy.. 🤪⁣

But I’m a firm believer in experiencing things first hand + getting a real feel for what something is all about before I form a personal opinion on it.🤓😉⁣

The Carnivore Diet first came into my awareness when a close friend shared with me all of the benefits that he was experiencing by eating this way. ⁣

Coming from being vegan 4.5 years, I was hellla resistant to the concept of eating ONLY animal foods (aka only meat, seafood, + eggs)⁣

I didn’t make ANY sense to me. It actually sounded pretty f*cking ridiculous. 😂⁣

But oddly enough, I started to hear story after story from my fellow vegan friends jumping ship, testing out the carnivore diet and experiencing amazing health transformations.⁣

I was so confused.🤨🤔⁣

But I had my own fair share of health struggles and eventually reached a breaking point where I was willing to try anything to function properly again. ⁣

With an online community of 800,000 people ~ many of which were primarily showing up for my vegan related content… I was a bit conflicted to say the least. ⁣

But I knew I needed to make decisions based on what was in the best interest for my health.⁣

I swallowed my pride + decided I’d give it a shot. Full onnn carnivore. I woke up the next morning feeling more mentally clear, focused, wholesome, and healthy than I had felt in years.⁣

God bless. ⁣
But also, WTF?⁣
My vegan identity crumbled immediately. ⁣

This past year of my life has been a journey of remembering who I am separate from what I eat. 🤯⁣

In hopes of challenging others to step out of their current perspective ~ I documented my newest challenge of eating only meat for 30 days.⁣
