Learn how Kristina Carrillo-Bucaram achieved her enviable lifestyle despite her health challenges and find inspiration to overcome yours.

You’ve probably heard of influencer Kristina Carrillo-Bucaram if you’re a vegan or have recently entered the world of being one. Nicknamed “FullyRaw Kristina,” the writer and raw vegan activist is passionate about educating and empowering individuals to take charge of their health by embracing a compassionate lifestyle through her FullyRaw approach. 

Born in Houston, Texas, Kristina battled and conquered Type II diabetes and is now on a mission to share her knowledge and experience with the world. Her vast social media presence has made her one of the most popular among vegans and health activists. Here, we dive into her personal life, including her husband and her plant-based diet. Have a look and enjoy!

Kristina’s Life Is No Doubt An Inspiring One:

At the age of 16, Kristina had been diagnosed with hyperglycemia, which led to hospitalizations, weight loss, and a loss of her ability to engage in the activities she loved. She also had been born with a heart condition, Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, which caused her to have rapid heartbeats and she underwent surgery to correct it. But then, her life took a total change when she met with a man in a grocery store who at the time coached her on how to eat raw by eliminating cooked food and animal products. 

This was a significant change for Kristina, as she grew up on traditional Lebanese and Ecuadorian foods that were not primarily raw fruits and vegetables. Within a month of adopting the raw food lifestyle, her health began to improve dramatically, and she was able to regain control of her life and body. Kristina has since built a successful brand, Fully Raw, and become the head of Rawfully Organic, the largest produce co-op in America, based in Houston, Texas.

Kristina’s Love Life – Past Relationships, Husband & Rumors:

The dancer, who has a degree from Rice University, is open about many aspects of her life but has been private about her romantic affairs. Kristina has previously dated Cody Orth. The pair dated for several years before ultimately breaking up. Details on why they broke up remain unknown, but Kristina had hinted the relationship was not healthy for her. It’s reported she has also dated Cashback, but as of 2023, the lifestyle influencer is not married and is believed to be single. She hasn’t disclosed any information about a current partner, nor has public photos or information about any potential romantic relationships. 

Everything About Kristina’s Plant-Based Diet:

Kristina transformed her health by eating just vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds – 100% fresh, raw, and ripe. She also relies on honey and other animal-derived products, such as beeswax and carmine; this has led to some vegans arguing that her diet is not truly vegan. Kristina has also been slammed by raw vegans for promoting a plant diet they believe is not sustainable, but she continues to be a powerful voice in the raw vegan movement and an inspiration to those who are looking to adopt a healthier lifestyle. 

However, FullyRaw is more than just a diet; it’s a lifestyle. Kristina thinks of it as a means of awakening and reconnecting with ourselves, with others, and with our planet. According to her, this transformation begins with food and extends to the mind, body, and spirit. And by adopting this lifestyle, you can establish a solid foundation that will lead to a healthier, happier, and more fulfilling existence. 

Kristina is available to support you on your journey of self-discovery through her programs, recipes, videos, workshops, and other resources.

The vegan firmly believes in the healing properties of food, as she has witnessed its remarkable effects firsthand.
