I became interested in 2008 of an all meat diet after reading about Vilhjalmur Stefansson. He was a Canadian explorer and wrote "Not by Bread Alone" and "The Fat of the Land".

To prove his findings that some societies were healthy on an all meat, its entrails and fish diet he agreed to eat this way himself for a year being monitored at Bellvue Hospital in New York City. He ate around 25% protein with 75 to 85% fat. When the study tried to feed him just lean meat it made him sick. He made sure to include different parts of the animal including the brain, liver, and kidneys.
