Una youtuber australiana, famosa por promover la cultura vegana, asegura haber ahorrado unos cuatro mil d贸lares (2 millones 500 mil pesos chilenos) en maquillaje y otros cosm茅ticos luego de irse a vivir hace un a帽o a alg煤n punto de la selva sudamericana.

La mujer, conocida como Freelee y quien tiene 37 a帽os de edad, pasa la mayor parte del tiempo desnuda, sin ninguna prenda de vestir que la “limite”.

De acuerdo a un art铆culo del peri贸dico brit谩nico Daily Mail, la blogger se alimenta con los frutos que ella misma cuida y recolecta, mientras que para ducharse usa el agua de las lluvias monz贸nicas.

Seg煤n afirm贸 la propia oce谩nica, decidi贸 escapar de la “civilizaci贸n occidental” junto a su pareja para alejarse de la vida de “esclava” que llevaba, trabajando cinco d铆as a la semana.

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! 馃し鈥嶁檧锔廏irls, 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.馃槈#gofreeyourself

“Desarroll茅 problemas temporales de salud debido al profundo estr茅s psicol贸gico. Al mismo tiempo, despert贸 esta profunda fortaleza en mi interior“, coment贸.

A trav茅s de sus redes sociales, Freelee sube regularmente las im谩genes de su d铆a a d铆a en este inusual hogar.

Adem谩s, la australiana comparte constantemente reflexiones junto a sus miles de seguidores que mantiene en Instagram.

Lately I go days without looking in the mirror even once, and I find it incredibly freeing. This was definitely not always the case. As a young woman I became obsessed with my reflection. I would spend hours a day analysing and comparing. Was it because I was vain? Because I thought I was too perfect for this world? On the contrary, I saw a face filled with 'imperfections'. I believed the story I was told by advertisements, that I was born inadequate and in desperate need of enhancement. I saw normal human charateristics as defects to be erased or covered; to be ashamed of. I hated my skin, especially my freckles. My smile was too narrow and my teeth too crooked. My top lip too skinny. Eyes not big enough. My hair too fine. The reality is, I didn't see the real me in the mirror. I didn't see the cheeky girl who loved to explore nature for hours and play in the dirt and creeks, instead I saw the ugly lies the beauty industry fed me. I've now been many months without makeup, fake lashes, creams, treatments etc and it feels so damn liberating. Remember, you were not born flawed, you were born into a flawed system. You were designed to be wild and free, to get dirty, to love and laugh, to explore and experience this beautiful planet – not to stress over your humanness. Don't buy the lie$ #gofreeyourself

“Hay gente en este mundo que quiere inspirar un cambio positivo y tambi茅n est谩n aquellos que quieren tirar hacia abajo a esas personas. Alguien escribi贸 que yo estaba mintiendo, y que viv铆a en una mansi贸n. Adem谩s dijo que yo ten铆a un fot贸grafo que me segu铆a a todos lados para tomarme fotos”, escribi贸 en una de sus m谩s recientes publicaciones.

“En realidad, he estado viviendo en una simple carpa durante muchos meses, soportando las lluvias monz贸nicas y los vientos huracanados. Ha sido REALMENTE dif铆cil por algunos momentos”, agreg贸.

En otras publicaciones, la youtuber se ha defendido de quienes la acusan de ser un “fraude” por tener un smartphone, internet y electricidad.

There are people in this world who want to inspire positive change鉁嬶笍and then there are others who want to bring those people down. One commenter said I was lying and living in a mansion out here and have a photographer who follows me around taking all my pics. Not quite hunny. 馃槄 In reality I've been living in a simple tent for many months, through monsoonal rains and gale force winds. It's been REALLY tough at times. No photographer but I do have Mr Tripod enabling me to video myself and then take screenshots for Instagram. Another commenter said I'm a fraud for having a smartphone, internet, and electricity. Yes, I do have a smart phone (but no reception), laptop and internet made possible through a satellite connection. Necessary tools of communication and income. This means I can share with you what I see as an empowering urgent message. At this stage I can't send you that message telepathically 馃し鈥嶁檧锔廡he electricity I use is 100% free and generated by 6 solar panels harnessing the suns rays. I don't have any lights so go to bed on sundown and get up on sunrise, as nature intended. I drink from (and bathe in) pristine stream water free of cost and city pollutants. I eat a frugivorous diet which is mostly grown here organically with a goal of 100% free food in the coming years. Living off the grid doesn't mean you have to exist like a hermit who doesn't communicate with the outside world. We are creating a beautiful natural life here and I want to inspire you do the same. 鈽锔#gofreeyourself

“Si, tengo un smartphone, notebook e internet, gracias a una conexi贸n satelital. Son herramientas necesarias de comunicaci贸n e ingresos. Esto significa que puedo compartir con ustedes lo que veo como un mensaje urgente de empoderamiento”, asever贸.

“En este punto no puedo enviarles el mensaje telep谩ticamente. La electricidad que uso es 100% gratis y generada por seis paneles solares que aprovechan los rayos del sol”, complement贸.

I'm sitting here eating sugar apples and a very old memory is triggered. As an 8 year old I had a routine of listening to my mum and dad talking in bed at night. They didn鈥檛 know I did and usually it was very calming for me. Not this night. I overheard my dad say that he thought it was weird that I didn鈥檛 have many friends, and that I wasn鈥檛 normal. I remember gasping and trying to hold back the tears. I already felt like an outcast in school. Now my dad, who was the centre of my universe even thought I was strange. I felt like I had disappointed him and that he didn鈥檛 love me so I went about trying to make friends. I was very introverted and this felt unnatural to me. I only liked minimal company. Needless to say the plan failed. I repeated the pattern a thousand times more until one day I realised HANG ON…. THIS IS WHO I AM. Being a weirdo is my speciality! 馃Please don鈥檛 ever be afraid to be different, BE afraid to be like everyone else. You are a limited edition. So welcome my fellow weirdos, you will fit right in here. 馃#gofreeyourself

Pol茅mica por su extrema dieta

Freelee hab铆a saltado a la fama en 2014, cuando caus贸 gran revuelo tras revelar sus inusuales h谩bitos alimentarios.

Tras luchar contra la bulimia, la mujer decidi贸 llevar una dieta vegetariana extrema compuesta en un 91% de vegetales crudos y cuyo principal alimento era el pl谩tano, llegando a consumir hasta 51 al d铆a, lo que equivale a unas 5.000 calor铆as.

La australiana complementaba este tipo de alimentaci贸n con mucho ejercicio, lo que le permiti贸 alcanzar un f铆sico tonificado.

Freele se convirti贸 en sensaci贸n en las redes sociales tras publicar una serie de videos en Youtube en donde comentaba los beneficios de su dieta.

鈥淣o tienes que comer esta cantidad de pl谩tanos. S贸lo estoy tratando de mostrar que tienes que comer grandes cantidades para estar delgado鈥, dijo Freelee en uno de sus videos, en los que comi贸 51 pl谩tanos, repartidos entre el desayuno, el almuerzo y la cena.

Cabe se帽alar que en aquella oportunidad, la vocera de la Asociaci贸n Diet茅tica Brit谩nica, Aisling Pigott, asegur贸 a Daily Mail que si bien la dieta vegetariana puede ser buena, se deben tener precauciones.

鈥淗ay algunos beneficios para la dieta. Por ejemplo, una dieta vegetariana bien balanceada puede ser muy saludable si se gestiona correctamente, sin embargo, todos los veganos deber铆an prestar especial atenci贸n a su hierro y la ingesta de calcio, adem谩s de un suplemento de vitamina B12鈥, explic贸.

Si bien los expertos aconsejan aumentar el consumo de frutas y verduras, la porci贸n recomendada es de 5 porciones al d铆a, y en lo posible, el total de alimentos ingeridos diariamente no deber铆a sobrepasar las 2.000 calor铆as, seg煤n indica la Biblioteca Nacional de Medicina de Estados Unidos.
