The Diet – Updated March 2018

By Mikhaila

Jordan Peterson’s Diet (extremely low carb):

Meats:

  • turkey
  • beef
  • chicken
  • lamb
  • duck
  • wild game is fine too, elk, moose, etc.
  • wild salmon
  • tunacheck the ingredients! Get stuff that’s just tuna and water and perhaps salt.
  • organ meat – chicken liver tastes the best I find
  • wild herring – check the ingredients!
  • wild sardinescheck the ingredients!

Veggies:

  • lettuce
  • arugula
  • arugula microgreens (arugula sprouts)
  • cucumber
  • swiss chard
  • seaweed –check the ingredients! this is hard to find without soy and other things. The brand I’ve linked to is safe and really tasty
  • cilantro
  • collard greens
  • broccoli
  • spinach

Fruit:

  • olives – check the ingredients! see my olive post. be super careful about which brands you buy here too, many have preservatives and flavours and dyes.

Vinegar:

  • apple cider vinegar – try to get the organic stuff so there aren’t dyes and flavours added

Oils:

  • coconut oil – get unrefined. And try to avoid the Nutiva brand. It’s everywhere but it doesn’t taste as good, and I’ve had ones that have gone bad before.
  • olive oil – make sure your olive oil is pure olive oil. Sometimes it’s also soybean oil!

Spices/Seasonings

  • salt
  • pepper
  • turmeric

Mikhaila Peterson’s Diet (Zero-carb Lion Diet):

Beef
Salt
Soda water because I’m a princess

Dad doesn’t tolerate carbs well. He’s cut out sweet potatoes, parsnips, and carrots and is down to JUST meat and greens. Those of you who have been following for a while may see changes from the original diet here. The original diet is what worked for me pre-pregnancy. For whatever reason, I lost the ability to tolerate any carbs (so any vegetable) after/during pregnancy. It took me about 6 months to realize what was going on and then switched to all meat (Dec 2017). Dad may be going zero-carb soon. He can get his mood to a 7-7.5/10 with the above diet but I don’t think that’s good enough. Zero-carb is easier, and there don’t seem to be any downsides. Currently symptom-free and thrilled about it. I also love steak.

  1. Does this mean that you only eat beef and salt?

    I read this last night before bed and this morning I woke up thinking ‘she couldn’t really have meant she only eats beef, could she?’ and feeling quite concerned about the potential for nutritional deficiencies and problems in the future.

  2. Is anyone on here a Diabetic? My wife was recently (the last 5 years) diagnosed with Type 1 (not traditional, her pancreas was damaged from radiation treatment from a childhood cancer). anyways, I have been trying to cook better for her using a similar diet (low-carb), but I’m worried I’m overlooking something. anyone else found a diabetic diet that works for them using mostly meat?
    thanks..:)

  3. I knoᴡ!? Staated Larrʏ. ?I guess he likes angels becаuse he hass them around all of the time.
    Possibly he and tһе angels play һousehold games luke we do sometimes.
    Maybe tbey play Monopoly.? This made Mommy chuսckle actuɑlly hard.

  4. Mikaila, I know I wrote you something somewhere, but not having received any acknowledgment, I looked through your posts but can’t find it. I’d like to mention probiotics again and hope you’ll look into the subject.

    I get your email updates to your blog and have been perusing many posts. Personally, am not into any sort of fad diets or strict anything and as I was brought up on wholesome and healthy food choices, I’m not stuck on fats, sweets, carbs, or anything. However, I did have some gut issues owing to a situation involving a very long story I won’t go into. My husband, similarly, had a related health problem.

    Skimming through so many comments on your threads I’m struck by the fact that people keep talking about what they can’t tolerate or what they react to, and no one is talking about repairing the gut microbiome! Fix the gut and we don’t have negative reactions to so many good foods. This makes far more sense that making a career out of trying this and that food, eliminating this and that ingredient in our diets…

    Despite having no allergies or issues with my decent normal diet, my gut went splooey on me as a rare complication from a fairly surgical procedure. My entire system, physically and psychologically was seriously affected. I bulldozed my way back to health but never really understood what I later learned….

    I stumbled upon a book: “The Mind-Gut Connection: How the Hidden Conversation Within Our Bodies Impacts Our Mood, Our Choices, and Our Overall Health” by Emeran Mayer, and have listened to the audio version twice. Ever since, my husband and I have been taking high quality probiotics and it has made a huge difference in our overall health. The information in the book I can’t help but believe you would greatly benefit from, as would your dad (of whom I’m a huge fan). You mentioned that you’ve been on many courses of antibiotics in your life and right there, whatever else was going on, your gut no doubt got all discombobulated. Check out the book and its recommendations. I think you’ll be very glad you did.

    Wishing you great health and happiness!

    Holly Louise

  5. P.S. I just found my previous comment — it’s still awaiting moderation. I hope this one is helpful, for you and for your dad. Cheers.
