Publisher's Summary

In the tradition of best sellers like The Plant Paradox and The Keto Reset Diet, The Carnivore Code reveals the shocking truth about so-called healthy foods and presents a complete program to reclaim your health with the true ancestral diet 

We are living longer than ever before, but we aren’t living better—millions of people suffer from diseases like diabetes, depression, joint pain, heart disease, and autoimmune illnesses. Millions more have tried and failed to lose weight and keep it off. If this sounds familiar, you’re not alone. And you know how frustrating and disheartening it is to cycle through diets, treatment plans, and prescriptions that provide little relief—and may actually add to your suffering.

There is a better way, and it starts with the food you eat. The carnivore diet is scientifically proven to reduce inflammation, improve sleep, reduce joint pain, improve mental clarity, and help you lose weight. Dr. Paul Saladino has experienced the incredible benefits of a meat-based diet firsthand and has helped hundreds of patients transform their health using his diet plan.

In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Saladino reveals the shocking truth about foods we’re told are essential for good health, like whole grains, plants, and leafy greens. He dismantles those myths one by one and reveals the healing potential of an all-meat diet: the diet our bodies were designed to eat. With step-by-step guidance, complete with sample meal plans and frequently asked questions, The Carnivore Code is the only plan you need to experience the incredible benefits of the carnivore diet for yourself.  

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Where is the often referenced accompanying PDF

The audio book keeps referring to an accompanying PDF for the audiobook that is not included. There is no PDF. All other books show the PDF first in the contents and it is missing for this book

Excellent - issues with PDF

This is a fantastic resource for anyone wanting to dive into the science and anthropological evidence for an animal based diet. I started a nose-to-tail "carnivore-ish" diet when I started listing to this book, and I lost 7 lbs before I was done listening to it (1 week). Dr. Saladino's podcast is also a must listen for anyone wanting more. I highly recommend this book. It's a little heavy on the science, which is fantastic, but may be overwhelming for some. I'm an anthropology student so this was right up my alley. My one complaint is that the accompanying PDF is all sorts of wrong. None of the graphics that Dr. Saladino tells you to reference throughout the audiobook are in the PDF. The PDF I was given appears to just be a random excerpt from the book. It starts with a cut-off sentence, and includes just the FAQ's section, appendices and bibliography. It's a bit of a bummer, because he references a chart that grades plant foods on a continuum of toxicity. He doesn't go into great detail on this in the audiobook, and since I can't reference it in the PDF, it's valuable information that's lost to me. All in all, this is a fantastic resource and it answered every question I've ever had about carnivore diets.

I contacted Audible about the PDF and they said the one online is incorrect. They are remedying the issue and will be replacing it.

Terrible useless book. Paul Saladino is a fraud

TERRIBLE! This is the most useless book I’ve read on the carnivore diet. This fraudster Paul Saladino aka “carnivore md” recommends honey, yams and fruit!! Hey Paul, this is the carnivore diet! His voice is very annoying and his inflated ego comes out in his voice. Avoid this book if you want to learn about The Carnivore Diet. This has nothing but fear and lies. He also heavily pushes his supplements. Avoid this book. Don’t waste your time or money

I feel better!

I am sick and willing to try any diet/lifestyle that can help. I’ve now been eating this way for just a short time, 5 days but was low carb/keto for 4 months before that and gluten-free for 10yrs before that. I feel GREAT! Since starting I’ve been sleeping again, 8-11hrs a night! Not done that since my teen yrs and I’m in my 60’s so that’s a huge improvement. Makes so much sense that plants would use chemical defenses against those that would harm/eat them...after all they cannot run, hide, bite,etc...This is a great book and the author/doctor reads his own book and he’s a good reader!

Great Nutrition Information for Everyone

Don't let the title fool you. This book has tons of great diet and nutritional information for everyone and especially anyone suffering from autoimmune, inflammatory or ASD issues with much of the science to support the information.

Fascinating and informative

I really enjoyed this book. The level of detail was excellent all backed up with science and good quality studies.
The author clearly has a passion for the subject and this comes across in his reading of the book. Highly recommended.

The entire world needs to read this. Now.

As a doctor myself, I can't explain how important this book is. Most people need to read this, ASAP, not only to benefit themselves, but for the entire world to benefit. Big corporate/pharmaceutical companies need to be accountable for their atrocities over the past 100 years. This is THE diet/lifestyle for humans.

Goes against popular wisdom

Very interesting, although he does throw a lot of scientific terms, which when listening can send you into a spin to try and understand. Would love the opportunity to try the diet though. Going to read more on it first.

not what I expected

I was happy to hear Paul go into detail about the science and not just deliver anecdotal stories. The book is easy to listen to and definitely makes you think about the real issues that plague our culture around food. Thumbs up!

Great book, pdf needs to be completed.

Really enjoyed listening to this book. Some of the descriptions of chemical reactions and the names of plant toxins etc was a lot but I just focused on the information provided and the reasons he was telling us about those things which was fascinating.

The biggest issue I had was that the pdf provided is incomplete. Paul makes several references to the pdf so we can see graphs etc to make his points but at least for the first half of the audiobook they are all missing. The pdf starts at page 125 from the book so whoever compiled it must not have listened to the audio book first to make sure all the references were included. Considering the pdf seems to be pages taken directly from the book it seems odd that so many pages referenced aren't there.

Hopefully Audible will get that sorted.

But overall, highly recommended.

Very informative and interesting

It was great listening to Paul Saladino read his book which was very informative and he seems to have this subject well researched. It would have been better if I was able to download the PDF that he constantly refers to in the audio?? in order to follow better what he is detailing. Overall good.
