In a 33-minute video, Mendoza explains why she had started eating meat again and why she kept it from her followers for quite a while. Mendoza explains that she had been having health issues while she was on the raw vegan diet. Her thyroid levels were low, she was no longer ovulating, and she was nearly anemic. Eventually she was diagnosed with small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO).
Because of this, her doctors advised her to consume meats and eggs, and soon her overall health improved.
I’m sharing just 2 of the many posts about veganism and malnutrition/undernutrition from paleoindia.
