Two million YouTube followers are complaining that they were “deceived” by 28-year-old raw vegan vlogger Yovana Mendoza Ayres known online as “Rawvana”. It seems she ate fish, and people are losing their minds about it.
“This video screams I got caught, so I have to make this,” Men’s Health quoted raging comments. “LOL there is nothing wrong eating whatever… the problem is the fraud, the deception, the fake news, the alternative facts… the LIES !!! You are morally bankrupt.”
The video confession now has nearly 400,000 views.
“I don’t think there was ever gonna be the perfect time for me to make this video,” she said in a 33-minute apology video. “I definitely did not feel ready to talk about this.”
According to the video, she was forced into “emergency [measures]” by doctors orders after six years as a raw vegan. She explained that her doctors told her to add eggs and fish back into her diet because she stopped menstruating and hasn’t for about two years. She was pre-menopausal and ultimately diagnosed with a small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO).
“I’m really, really sorry about the way the news was communicated to you, how you had to find out,” she said. “I know that so many of you — you trust me. You listen to me, and you probably feel deceived and lied to, and you’re in your whole right to feel that. And for that I ask forgiveness, I’m human.”
She noted that she wanted to walk through her new diet with followers, but hasn’t felt strong enough to do it after her health issues.
“I’m still figuring it out,” she closed. “I wasn’t going to sit in front of the camera and tell you, ‘Oh, I’ve been eating eggs and fish for the past two months and everything is better, everything is good, and the plant-based diet doesn’t work.'”
Rawvana hopes to return to a raw diet when she’s approved by healthcare professionals.

‘Smoking gun so hot it’s still on fire’: Ex-US Attorney astonished by text shown in Vindman testimony
A former U.S. Attorney says Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman has delivered "smoking gun" evidence of a quid pro quo arrangement between President Donald Trump and Ukraine.
The National Security Council staffer told a House impeachment inquiry that he was aware of -- and alarmed by -- efforts as early as March to pressure Ukraine to announce an investigation of Joe Biden and his son, which he believed were conducted to deliver a political benefit the president.
The counsel for House Democrats then showed a text sent 30 minutes before Trump's July 25 call to Ukraine's president Volodymyr Zelensky, which shows the special envoy Kurt Volker dangling a White House visit to a Zelensky aide in exchange for an investigation.
‘Perfectly impeachable’: George Conway says Vindman and Williams testimony is ‘absolutely devastating’ for Trump
On Tuesday, as Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman and Mike Pence aide Jennifer Williams testified publicly about their knowledge of the Ukraine scandal, conservative lawyer George Conway called the testimony "devastating" for President Donald Trump — and proclaimed his conduct both impeachable and criminal.
This testimony, from two witnesses to the July 25 call, is absolutely devastating. That call was absolutely “perfect,” all right—perfectly impeachable.

‘Improper’, ‘Unusual’: Aides describe Trump’s Ukraine call at impeachment hearing
One top national security aide who listened to President Donald Trump’s July call with Ukraine’s president called it “improper.” Another said it was “unusual.” The two testified Tuesday at House impeachment hearings as the inquiry reached deeper into the White House.
Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, an Army officer at the National Security Council, and Jennifer Williams, his counterpart at Vice President Mike Pence’s office, said they had concerns as Trump spoke on July 25 with the newly elected Ukraine president about political investigations into Democrat Joe Biden.
