Loni Jane is a 25-year-old Gold Coast woman who is pregnant and on a highly restrictive diet. And boy is she copping some heat for it.
She has been accused of putting her unborn baby at risk due to a restrictive diet. She says she's just healthy. What do you think?
Here is a typical day:
4.30-5am: Several glasses of lemon water
Morning: Vital greens powder
Mid-morning: A banana smoothie made with 5-6 bananas
Lunch: A 'mono meal' made up of mangoes, pineapples or any fruit, plus a salad if she's extra hungry
Dinner: Various meals made up of fruit, vegetables and vegan dressings
Restrictive? Yes. Dangerous? We don't think so.
Loni Jane Anthony says it was when she hit her early twenties that her body began rebelling against her unhealthy diet. She was putting on weight, she was tired and her skin was breaking out. It was then that she discovered US doctor Doug Graham's 80/10/10 diet that is a low-fat, vegan diet made up mostly of uncooked fruits and vegetables.
Her health improved almost immediately.
Loni Jane has shared her transformation using her Instagram account and has gained an impressive following of 116,000.
At first, she was met with admiration, but now, she's been subjected to harsh criticism and called narcissistic, irresponsible and ugly. She's been accused of putting her unborn child through a 'dangerous diet'. Her response was to post this photo showing a typical meal...and the photo above where she has drawn a face sticking it's tongue out on her pregnant belly. Ha.
This doesn't look like an unhealthy meal at all. So why do people think they can comment on how she eats, just because she's pregnant?
