Publisher's Summary

In the tradition of best sellers like The Plant Paradox and The Keto Reset Diet, The Carnivore Code reveals the shocking truth about so-called healthy foods and presents a complete program to reclaim your health with the true ancestral diet 

We are living longer than ever before, but we aren’t living better - millions of people suffer from diseases like diabetes, depression, joint pain, heart disease, and autoimmune illnesses. Millions more have tried and failed to lose weight and keep it off. If this sounds familiar, you’re not alone. And you know how frustrating and disheartening it is to cycle through diets, treatment plans, and prescriptions that provide little relief - and may actually add to your suffering.

There is a better way, and it starts with the food you eat. The carnivore diet is scientifically proven to reduce inflammation, improve sleep, reduce joint pain, improve mental clarity, and help you lose weight. Dr. Paul Saladino has experienced the incredible benefits of a meat-based diet firsthand and has helped hundreds of patients transform their health using his diet plan.

In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Saladino reveals the shocking truth about foods we’re told are essential for good health, like whole grains, plants, and leafy greens. He dismantles those myths one by one and reveals the healing potential of an all-meat diet: the diet our bodies were designed to eat. With step-by-step guidance, complete with sample meal plans and frequently asked questions, The Carnivore Code is the only plan you need to experience the incredible benefits of the carnivore diet for yourself.  

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

well researched, easy to listen to book.

Loved this book.... detailed research, inspiring. At times it got really scientific, but I went back to Google for more clarity. There is a lot of evidence outthere to support Dr Salandino's woe. if you are considering going carnivore... this is a must listen to... rather than reading.

Brilliant Book

Explains the science, debunks myths, gives practical advice and offers troubleshooting as well. I love that he narrated himself. The passion he has for what he believes in makes him a delight to listen to! Would definitely recommend to anyone exploring or dabbling in the low carb or keto space

So much biochemistry

Loved it! I've been listening to Dr Paul on YouTube for some time now and couldn't wait for the audobook to come out. I'm a nerd and loved how he went through all the myths associated with this diet, all the shady science and misconceptions that are making so many people sick. I've been on this diet 8 months now and feel amazing...

The audio book keeps referring to an accompanying PDF for the audiobook that is not included. There is no PDF. All other books show the PDF first in the contents and it is missing for this book

Excellent - issues with PDF

This is a fantastic resource for anyone wanting to dive into the science and anthropological evidence for an animal based diet. I started a nose-to-tail "carnivore-ish" diet when I started listing to this book, and I lost 7 lbs before I was done listening to it (1 week). Dr. Saladino's podcast is also a must listen for anyone wanting more. I highly recommend this book. It's a little heavy on the science, which is fantastic, but may be overwhelming for some. I'm an anthropology student so this was right up my alley. My one complaint is that the accompanying PDF is all sorts of wrong. None of the graphics that Dr. Saladino tells you to reference throughout the audiobook are in the PDF. The PDF I was given appears to just be a random excerpt from the book. It starts with a cut-off sentence, and includes just the FAQ's section, appendices and bibliography. It's a bit of a bummer, because he references a chart that grades plant foods on a continuum of toxicity. He doesn't go into great detail on this in the audiobook, and since I can't reference it in the PDF, it's valuable information that's lost to me. All in all, this is a fantastic resource and it answered every question I've ever had about carnivore diets.

Terrible useless book. Paul Saladino is a fraud

TERRIBLE! This is the most useless book I’ve read on the carnivore diet. This fraudster Paul Saladino aka “carnivore md” recommends honey, yams and fruit!! Hey Paul, this is the carnivore diet! His voice is very annoying and his inflated ego comes out in his voice. Avoid this book if you want to learn about The Carnivore Diet. This has nothing but fear and lies. He also heavily pushes his supplements. Avoid this book. Don’t waste your time or money

I feel better!

I am sick and willing to try any diet/lifestyle that can help. I’ve now been eating this way for just a short time, 5 days but was low carb/keto for 4 months before that and gluten-free for 10yrs before that. I feel GREAT! Since starting I’ve been sleeping again, 8-11hrs a night! Not done that since my teen yrs and I’m in my 60’s so that’s a huge improvement. Makes so much sense that plants would use chemical defenses against those that would harm/eat them...after all they cannot run, hide, bite,etc...This is a great book and the author/doctor reads his own book and he’s a good reader!

Great Nutrition Information for Everyone

Don't let the title fool you. This book has tons of great diet and nutritional information for everyone and especially anyone suffering from autoimmune, inflammatory or ASD issues with much of the science to support the information.

Great book Paul!

Great read, had to get the audible version after reading the paperback. Very informative, love the way Paul gets into details of biomechanics and always cites related studies. Challenges the whole notion that meat is bad for us and the planet.

I'm returning this audio book

This guy is completely crazy. I stopped listening when he started talking about his love of hunting. I found it weird and disturbing. And I'm going to return the audio book. I was looking forward to what he had to say. I'm a meat eater and I grew up in a family of self righteous and very annoying vegetarians and vegans, and I have known all my life, despite my upbringing, that eating meat is right for me. His arguments and the 'scientific evidence' he uses are so far fetched and crazy. It seems like a very long book full of crazy, far fetched ideas. And his narration is terrible.

Goes against popular wisdom

Very interesting, although he does throw a lot of scientific terms, which when listening can send you into a spin to try and understand. Would love the opportunity to try the diet though. Going to read more on it first.

well I really enjoyed the listen,

I like Paul saladino MD, although he's very straight to the point and doesn't beat around the bush, he makes some very valid points, enough for me to try a carnivore diet to try and sort out some of my own problems, so far it seems to be working quite well. great book, great information
