Joey Primal – Carnivore Diet
Joey is an 18 year old proponent of the carnivore diet. He will attend UCLA where he hopes to continue the journey towards establishing the link between nutrition and disease. He is a firm believer in the efficacy of a carnivore diet in both curing and preventing a plethora of health issues. He has a youtube channel called Carnivore Camaraderie that he uses to share content in the form of anecdotal experiences, hard science, and interviews with professionals, all of which serve to reinforce his belief that a carnivore diet is the absolute best thing a person can do to achieve good health. Joey differs from many other people within the carnivore community due to his unique appeal to a younger demographic. He wants to build a platform that can be used to clarify misconceptions and provide tools that people can use to become healthier. He hopes that, by spreading the right message, he can improve the world and help ameliorate peoples’ health problems.

How can fruit be bad for us? In nature, animals eat fruit to become fat, in preparation for the winter. Makes no sense to eat fruit in the winter. Fruit also has a lot of sugar in fructose form.
Fruit has been hybridized to be sweeter and is not a health food.
Sugar is how we put on body fat.
How about fat? Eats high fat ground beef, also tallow by spoonfuls.
Eat as much meat as you could possibly want. Eats only raw dairy, which still has lactase in it.
Organ meats – do it in percentage that would be in the animal. Higher ratio of organ meat to muscle meat is probably best, because scavenger animals and early humans would have eaten the organs first.
Grass-fed, grass-finished, no antibiotics meat is best and is low in deuterium. Even grain fed meat is better than vegetables, but grain is high in deuterium. Deuterium is super-high in processed foods, in water, and is a major factor in disease today. Deuterium replaces hydrogen in metabolism and spins slower in the electron transport chain.
Cows eat grass, which ferments in the gut. The fiber converts to fat in the form of short chain fatty acids.
Now pooping 3 times a week instead of 2 times/day.
