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.

"Bro, read the Big Fat Surprise"

The author read The Big Fat Surprise, which is a fantastic book that tells the story of how we got into this predicament. Gorging ourselves on carbs and vegetable oils, shunning saturated fats whilst dieing of cancer and heart disease. This book is basically a retelling of that story, with the addition of the author's brand of bro-speak. "strap in for the next chapter" "live a radical life". There are additions. Mostly telling us how every vegetable that grows on this planet will kill us as well. Which is fine. Or it would be if the author didn't have such an obvious agenda. Surely there much be a redeeming quality to at least one vegetable. Avocado? Raspberry? Give me something. I didn't mind the actual meat of the book (no pun intended). There was a lot of useful information. I was just so put off by the injections of the author's "personality" and flair. I suggest doing what the author did and read the source material. if you plan to go pure carnivore, maybe just wait for his inevitable cook book.

ruined me

I did this to the T. after 2 months it aggravated my crohns that has been in remission for 4 years (on a vegetarian diet). I don't doubt that this might work for other people but the promises of it working for everyone is irritating. a little bit of everything is the key.

ya its fine, but............

Its all good, a little dense. Trouble is, I just finished "Mastering Diabetes" written by equally impressive guys, same plethora of scientific studies to back up their hypothesis aaaaaaand diametrically opposed to everything proposed in this book. So if the brains in the room can't figure it out, what the hell is someone like me supposed to do with it?

Inspirational and Thought-provoking

Paul Saladino takes you on a phenomenal adventure understanding our ancestral dietary roots. I learned a lot about the biochemistry, and the chemical warfare that occurs in our bodies when we consume plants vs. meats as food. Listening to this audiobook inspired me to become a carnivore, and I thoroughly recommend and advocate joining the Carnivore Tribe. I suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder, and switching to this diet has honestly reduced my depressive symptoms from the Winter Blues. The physical and mental health benefits of a carnivore diet are incredible.

Amazing !!

If you’ve been battling with digestive issues for many years I think this is such valuable information. I strongly believe returning to nature is crucial in order to thrive in this modern world. Great work Dr.Paul on this incredible book.

Where is the often referenced accompanying PDF

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.

Updated PDF is Coming

I contacted Audible about the PDF and they said the one online is incorrect. They are remedying the issue and will be replacing it.

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!
