11 years ago I renamed myself Freelee during a waterfast because freedom is what I hold most sacred in life. 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 shower in monsoonal rains and drink from pristine creeks. I quit an unhealthy relationship and found peace. I haven't shaved my bodyhair, dyed my hair, or worn makeup in over 6 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.🤝 #gofreeyourself (ps- I do not recommend water fasts).

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.

'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.

'I developed temporary health issues related to deep psychological stress. At the same time this profound strength was awakened within.

Chance - Life - Codependency - People

'As dramatic as it sounds, I felt like I was being resuscitated and given a second chance at life. I was finally free. I realised it wasn't really love, it was codependency, and we were both better people apart.

'During this time I also experienced a joy I didn't know existed, with my new partner, my surroundings, my life direction.'

Day - Freelee - Litres - Orange - Juice

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 abso-fruitly a great start to the day,' she announced on social media.

Lunchtime - Mint - Milkshake - Dates - Water

Lunchtime calls for a 'chocolate mint milkshake' with 20 pitted dates, water, organic cacao powder and a drop of peppermint oil, blended until smoothe.

Usually for dinner she'll enjoy her first cooked meal...
