Influencer “Zhanna Samsonova” Promoting Fruit-Only Diet Passes Away at 39 Due to Suspected Malnutrition

Date: August 02, 2023

Zhanna Samsonova, a well-known social media influencer advocating the benefits of a vegan diet consisting solely of raw tropical fruit, has tragically passed away at the age of 39, reportedly due to malnutrition, exhaustion, and infections.

Hailing from Russia, Zhanna regularly shared her extreme dietary choices on platforms like Instagram and TikTok while living and working in south-east Asia. She had claimed to have followed a diet of raw tropical fruits for years, forgoing water and opting for fruit and vegetable juices instead.

Although the official cause of her death has not been disclosed, her mother attributed it to a “cholera-like infection.” However, friends of the influencer revealed that she had visibly become emaciated and suffered from malnutrition.

One friend described the unsettling sight of Zhanna’s frail appearance, with hands as thin as those of a 12-year-old. Despite her declining health, she remained cheerful and happy, finding joy in her cooking and receiving praise from her followers.

Initially, Zhanna’s journey into healthy eating included fish and dairy products, but she gradually eliminated essential protein sources like nuts, leading to a more restrictive diet of only fruits, fruit juices, and fruit smoothies. Her online photos reflected her diminishing physical condition, raising concerns among her followers.

The sudden loss of Zhanna Samsonova serves as a stark reminder of the importance of a balanced and nutritious diet, emphasizing the significance of seeking professional advice when considering extreme dietary choices.
