A former vegan claims she has cut out all fruit and vegetables and said goodbye to smelly toilet visits by following a strict ‘carnivore diet’ of only meat, eggs and sticks of raw butter.
Atlanta law student Victoria Ferraz has been following the “carnivore diet” for seven months after rejecting what she calls “vegan propaganda.”
The 23-year-old has also cut out all sugars and carbs after a year of veganism turned out to be the ‘worst decision of her life’.
Since the student gave up her devotion to almond and oat milk in favor of raw cow’s milk, Victoria claims that her joint pain, acne and bloating have all disappeared and she no longer needs to take medication for hypothyroidism.

Law student Victoria Ferraz has been following the ‘carnivore diet’ for seven months after rejecting what she calls ‘vegan propaganda’
She claims her diet change has improved her hair, nails, acne and health, and laughs at those who suggest her toilet ‘must stink’
She typically eats two to four eggs for breakfast with bacon or grass-fed beef patties, drinks butter in her coffee and enjoys rib-eye steaks for dinner every night.
Victoria claims her diet change has improved her hair, nails, acne and health, and she laughs at people who suggest her toilet ‘must smell’.
Now feeling better than ever, she hopes to share her journey with her diet, hoping to encourage others to join the ‘carnivore community’ and kiss their sugar and veggies goodbye.
Victoria said: ‘Every day is different for me because your body tells you what it wants.
‘Right now for breakfast and dinner I eat ribeyes, tenderloin, pork belly, lots of eggs, bacon, patties, butter, tallow, that whole range of animal products.
‘I have completely eliminated all types of sugar: fruit, carbs and processed sugar. I don’t eat plants or vegetables.
‘There are no days off. I would never go back to those foods because I felt so bad and now I feel so good.
‘I would never do that to my body again. I admit the worst decision of my life was agreeing that (veganism) was correct.

‘I had hypothyroidism. I was told I would have to deal with it for the rest of my life. Now I see that’s not true.
‘My goal was to get off the medication. My doctor looked at my labs yesterday and said no one with labs like yours has hypothyroidism.”
As a child, Victoria grew up on a diet full of meat, rice, beans and salads and often enjoyed cookies and pastries for breakfast.
After going plant-based for a year in her twenties due to vegan ‘propaganda’ and a desire to lose weight, her health deteriorated – but doctors told her her bloating and lack of energy were normal.
“For a long time I ate everything a normal person would eat, I didn’t restrict myself,” Victoria said.
‘Then I saw the propaganda about plant-based eating and a burger consisting only of seed oil, water and chemicals.
‘I bought it because I wanted to lose weight. I was crazy, it had to be almond milk or oat milk. I thought people who drank raw milk were crazy.
‘I used to think I was intolerant to dairy. I had a lot of intestinal problems, such as bloating. I felt so tired. I suffered a lot from acne.
‘I had joint pain in my jaw, sinus problems and headaches almost every day.
“When I talked to a lot of professionals and a lot of doctors, I told them things about me and they said, ‘This is normal.’
Since turning to the carnivore diet, she claims her two animal-based meals a day (right) have now resolved all her previous health problems. She previously had wraps and granola bowls (left)
“But it wasn’t normal and I couldn’t feel like this every day,” she explained.
Since turning to the carnivore diet, she claims her two animal-based meals a day have solved all her previous health problems and blames it on sugar and ‘oxalates’ – compounds found in fruits, nuts and seeds.
Apart from the occasional blueberry on ‘very rare’ occasions, Victoria has not eaten any fruit or vegetables since February due to these oxalates, which she said were causing her whole body ‘inflammation’.
Victoria even admitted that despite online comments suggesting her trips to the bathroom ‘must smell’, her toilet had never been fresher.
“Everything is better with (being a) carnivore, my hair, my teeth, my nails,” she said.
‘My body is inflamed. Now I have so much energy that I don’t feel bloated. My acne disappeared.
‘Vegetables high in oxalates cause a lot of inflammation in our body.
‘Very rarely do I have a few blueberries, but right now I’m trying really hard not to have them.
‘This could be TMI, but everyone says “your bathroom must stink,” but I don’t eat processed foods or sugars or seed oils or the oxalates that set us on fire.
‘This causes us to have to empty our bowels every day because you eat so much waste.
Her videos have over 20,000 likes and she hopes sharing her meals will get more people interested in the carnivore diet
‘If you’re not, everything is fresh and normal. People are okay with eating donuts every day or eating their frappe latte that has 300 grams of sugar in it, but they have a problem with me eating meat.”
Her videos have more than 20,000 likes and she hopes sharing her meals will get more people interested in the carnivore diet.
“Carnivore is a growing community and I want to share my story to help others become aware of the opportunities they can have without medications and live a good life,” said Victoria.
‘Some people on the carnivore diet eat fruit or some vegetables, but I don’t promote that because of the sugar and the problems it causes.
“I don’t even blame the haters, I think they’re just misinformed.
“I think anyone interested in the diet should do their research and perhaps do it by cutting things out slowly and increasing the meat and fat.”
The National Health Service online suggests: ‘Meat is a good source of protein, vitamins and minerals in your diet.’
However, if you currently eat more than 90 grams (cooked weight) of red or processed meat per day, the Department of Health and Social Care advises to reduce to 70 grams.

NHS advice from the University Hospitals Sussex website on oxalates is to avoid overconsumption only if you have kidney stones.
Only 10 to 15% of urinary oxalate comes from your dietary intake.
It is therefore not necessary to completely eliminate oxalate-containing foods from your diet.
However, you should aim for a moderate (and sensible) intake of oxalates.
