Shocked right? So was I.
A vegan influencer, who’s not vegan anymore, revealed in an Instagram post that she tried the ‘carnivore diet’ and she’s never felt so much ‘energized’ in years.
She documented the entire journey on YouTube.
Alyse Parker, who boasts 220K followers on Instagram, posted a long write-up, stating the reason for her decision to switch to the Carnivore diet, which includes eating only meat and animal products, like eggs and dairy for 30 days.

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. Video launches next week. Who’s ready? Comment 🌈 below!
She decided to try on the new carnivore diet after hearing its health benefits from her friends. She was a ardent vegan for 5 years and had quite a following for her plant-based diet and lifestyle.
No wonder they must be mad or rather say, pissed at her. Here’s a meme summing up what they feel right now.
