Alessandra-Torresani-HLife-Exclusive

“I was allergic to my mom’s breast milk as a child, so when I eventually started to eat normal food, they only gave me pureed fruits and vegetables ’cause my stomach was too sensitive. My family never gave me meat and they figured ‘Oh, when she is older, she’ll eventually want it’, but I never craved it. So, I literally have never had a piece of chicken in my life.

Literally, the most protein I’ve ever had in my life is edemame, kidney and garbanzo beans, and spinach…If I don’t eat carbs, that’s when my body shuts down. I’ve tried to do the protein thing were I go eating five straight days of protein with a certain amount of healthy carbs and I literally feel sick, I get faint, and I can’t even walk. But if I have carbs (fruits, veggies) I’m energized and glowing and I’m not getting bloated and fat from it. My body is just used to it, I just don’t know any different. Trust me, I get plenty of fruits and vegetables.
