A TikTok user from Brisbane decided to try the questionable diet to see if it helped his long list of allergies, showing his progress along the way.

User @roryskitchen – who has 220,900 followers and 2.8 million likes – was trying the diet for 30 days to find out three things: – if it could heal his gut, autoimmune symptoms and health conditions; What will happen to his body after eating only meat for 30 days; And what his bud looks like.


Lately I’ve been reacting to most foods so I tried the lion diet for 24 hours…it’s a modified version of the carnivore diet and it’s basically a very strict elimination diet, you only eat meat (like lamb, beef etc.), drink only water 💦 (shiny water to the top G) and season with salt only. I saw @mikhailapeterson and Jordan B. Peterson floating around on my FYP, Reels and Shorts talking about how eating this way cured chronic autoimmune conditions. As an immunocompromised person, I thought I would take it. It’s safe to say I’ve felt better for a long time. I will be starting a 30 day version of this soon but with more focus on lean meat (called the GAPS diet) so I can start healing my gut… so if you want to see the results of that pls follow along. Also, I am not a doctor, I am making a video sharing my journey. DYO research etc. #theliondiet # meat eater #carnivore #liondiet #MikhailPeterson #jordanbpeterson #deficiency diet #Guttend Psychology Syndrome #pull
