The Carnivore Cast is a podcast focused on the carnivore diet and lifestyle with practical advice from successful carnivores, citizen scientists, and top researchers answering your burning questions and meaty topics. 

May 24, 2019

Don Matesz (@DonMatesz) is the author of the Hypercarnivore Diet book with the subtitle Eat Meat, Get Healthy. Plants Optional. He’s also the founder of Full Range Strength, a blog and YouTube channel on using bodyweight and band-resisted exercise to build strength and muscle with minimal time and financial investment.

Don switched to a hypercarnivore diet in mid-2017 after decades of practicing and authoring books on plant-based diets to relieve his psoriasis and eczema. He’s also improved his skin, digestive health, and body composition dramatically.

The Hypercarnivore Diet is one of – if not the – best book written on the carnivore diet and goes in-depth on many important topics such as micronutrients, sustainable sourcing, common myths and much more.
