A well-known YouTube vlogger, who has claimed to be on a strict raw vegan diet, has confessed to eating animal products — after she was caught eating fish at a restaurant. The vlogger, Yovana Mendoza Ayres(Rawvana), has had her vlog going for six years claiming that veganism was the cure to many ailments, and even claiming that her plant-based lifestyle “completely changed” her life.
The 28-year-old fitness and lifestyle influencer has gained a massive following of nearly 2 million subscribers on her Spanish YouTube channel and nearly half a million on her English channel. She also has a following of 1.3 million followers on Instagram.
In the past week, the popular vegan Youtuber, has gained much criticism from her followers. In a video posted online by another vlogger, Ayres is seen eating at at a restaurant. She tried to hide the food, but rumors started up saying she was consuming fish.
Although the proclaimed vegan stayed hush-hush for a bit, she eventually confessed to consuming meat in a lengthy video. In the video titled“THIS IS WHAT IS HAPPENING,” she tells her followers that she started incorporating eggs and fish into her diet after noticing her periods becoming more irregular and her struggles with fatigue worsening. Yovana admitted to changing up her diet to add more eggs and fish two months ago to “put my health first.”
She says she didn’t inform her followers right away because “For me, it’s still an experiment.” Ayres says she was diagnosed with SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth) and was advised by her doctor to start incorporating eggs and fish into her diet. She said that since she switched up her diet, her digestion problems have gotten much better.
The vloggers socials has been getting hit with tons of negative comments since the whole thing went down. However, in the 30 minute video, she says some users have reached out to her in private messages to offer their support.
