WHAT IS AN
ANIMAL BASED DIET?
An animal-based diet is centered around
the most optimal foods for humans;
meat, organs, fruit, honey, and raw dairy.
These are the most nutrient-rich foods on the planet, long sought after by humans. By choosing these foods instead of sub-optimal foods like leaves, stems, roots and seeds, we can reverse and prevent disease, as well as unlock our most powerful forms.
Think about it from a plants point of view: Plants can't run away or bite like animals, so they've had to develop defense chemicals to dissuade animals from over-consuming them. Plant leaves, stems, roots, and seed all contain these defense chemicals which can be harmful to humans.
Fruit is what plants want us to eat – so that we help them reproduce. That’s why they made their fruit both sweet and colorful, with far less defense chemicals than their leaves, stems, roots and seeds.

QUICK START GUIDE
Use the animal-based calculator to find out how much to eat, based on your goal body weight and activity level*.
*Macronutrient guidelines may change, depending on health status or goals.
Reach out to RadicalHealth@HeartandSoil.co for individual health support.
For every 100lbs you weigh, aim for at least 1lb of meat per day.
Here’s how to calculate your optimal range:
With liver, aim for 0.5oz daily (2-3 oz per week). Try to include an assortment of organs, including heart, testicle, bone marrow, tripe, kidney, spleen, pancreas, brain, intestine, etc.
If you aren't ready for fresh organs, check out Heart & Soil Supplements for desiccated organs.
My recommendation for carbohydrates is based on your goal body weight and activity level:
Raw dairy has superior nutritional value in comparison to pasteurized dairy. If you're intolerant to lactose, try fermenting your dairy.
Eat 0.5oz liver per day (2-3 oz per week). Get a few ounces of other organs per day - examples include heart, testicle, kidney, pancreas, brain, and bone marrow.
Get these FRESH or desiccated from Heart & Soil.
