The Diet – Updated March 2018

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):

Meats, Veggies, Fruits, Seasonings:
Beef

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.

    Would you do a future post on your exercise routine? I have Ehlers Danlos and chronic joint pain. I try to plank, walk, and do deadlifts because it helps my posture and grip strength. I know you had/have a joint condition and wonder how you work around it.

    • Lots of people are sensitive to eggs. They’re one of the top 8 allergens.. I’d probably avoid for the first month and reintroduce after that

    Mikhaila, Thank you for all your help. I thought that your father was 100% carnivore based on recent (?.-not sure of the episode/s) Rogan podcast. Is this still accurate? Thank you.

        Awesome post. From what I understand this diet needs to be updated as Dr. Jordan Peterson is eating just beef. Correct?

        So that means no salmon, chicken, tuna, olive oil, salt, etc? If that’s so… could you elaborate on the type of beef you are both consuming and do you cook it? How many meals per day?

        It would be greatly appreciated
