Freelee the Banana Girl fled 'western civilisation' twelve months ago to live a new life in the South American jungle with her partner.
Axar.az reports citing Daily Mail.
Known for being a public activist for the raw vegan diet, the controversial Queenslander, 37, has shared new photos sans makeup and naked in a tree to explain why she enjoys an 'off-grid' lifestyle.
Not only has she been able to grow her own fruit in the luscious rainforest surrounds but she also saved more than $4,000 by giving up cosmetics like razors, makeup and shampoo.
'Am I going to be nude in every shot now? Yes, nude in the jungle. Free of clothes, labels, shoes, makeup, shaving. It just feels right,' she wrote alongside the provocative photos.
'I left an unhealthy situation and felt the heart-crushing betrayal from the one I loved and trusted most. I was totally numb at one point, trying to understand my part in it all,' she continued.
'During this time I also experienced a joy I didn't know existed, with my new partner, my surroundings, my life direction.'
On a typical day, Freelee drinks 1.5-2.5 litres of orange juice, freshly squeezed each morning, which helps to improve her circulation and boost the immune system.
'It's also-fruitly a great start to the day,' she announced on social media.
Usually for dinner, she'll enjoy her first cooked meal of the day, like a spicy dahl, but lately, the wildlife warrior has been steering clear of 'cooked' food.
For exercise Freelee opts for a strength workout with logs, moving things around the garden by squatting and moving soil. If she needs to bathe it's in a nearby creek in her bikini.
'Since then I've been shedding the layers that hold me back. I freed myself from the 9-5 slave drive and moved to the jungle.
'I spend most of my day nude; free of restrictive clothing. I feast mostly on organic fruits and vegetables picked from the land.
'I haven't shaved my body hair, dyed my hair, or worn makeup in over six months... I'm feeling freer than ever in life. This is not random good luck! You too CAN create this freedom, and I'm here to inspire you.'
'Please don't ever be afraid to be different, BE afraid to be like everyone else. You are a limited edition,' she said.
Freelee decided to adopt a jungle lifestyle one morning when she woke up 'dreading the work day ahead'.
'I was exhausted with the 9-5 grind. Waking to an alarm, commuting over an hour a day dressed in a restrictive suit, painting my face to "look the part", binding my feet in high heels, and faking a smile to the public,' she said.
'I was sick of working my life away making someone else rich. Maybe the worst, I was bored. I wanted to be turned on and to FEEL something meaningful every day.
In October 2017, the YouTuber hit back at male critics who insulted her body hair.
The 37-year-old, who has gained a large following for her often controversial videos, had shared a snap of herself showing off her armpit hair on Instagram.
'I haven't shaved my furry armpits in ages now and I love it. Not only that but I no longer shave my legs, arms, face or pubes,' she said.
'I actually feel so liberated and empowered from the simple act of not shaving. When you think about it, it's actually a big deal not to shave in this suppressive society. I am no longer conforming to a sexist standard set by the media.
