This man lives on a diet consisting almost entirely of raw meat.

Weston Rowe, 39, of Omaha, Nebraska, has been eating raw meat for the past three years after researching the additional health benefits that just eating raw meat can provide.

He claims this unique diet has helped his energy levels much more after previously feeling incredibly exhausted from eating a “normal” diet.

Weston regularly eats foods such as raw beef, raw liver, raw chicken and even brains, all sourced locally from dairy and poultry farms.

Weston said: ‘I would say I eat 99 percent fresh raw meat right now and have never been sick or unwell from my diet.

‘I don’t eat raw or processed foods anymore and honestly I can’t really afford them.

“I get all my meat and raw dairy products from local suppliers and friends who keep livestock, and I grow my own fruit in my garden.”

Weston regularly spends about $140 (£103.94) a week on his food, which he says is a manageable amount.

He explained: ‘The way I see it, it’s a reasonable amount to pay to eat the best and most nutritious food in the world and it’s actually equivalent to a comparable amount I used to spend on junk food.

‘It only becomes expensive if you start incorporating seafood into the mix, such as swordfish and oysters

Dietitian’s ‘Raw Diet’ Warning

Dietitian Dr. Frankie Phillips, of the British Dietetic Association, has emphasized that while some cuts of meat can be safely eaten raw, chicken poses too high a risk of food poisoning.

She said: ‘Eating some cuts of meat, raw or lightly cooked, poses a health risk, but provided it has been slaughtered, handled and stored properly – with proper hygienic conditions – it can be a low risk.

‘A ‘blue’ steak, or steak tartare, may be safe to eat, but it cannot be guaranteed to be free of harmful pathogens. Conversely, cooking meat at a high temperature for long enough reduces the risk of food poisoning, as it kills or denatures harmful bacteria.

‘If eggs have a British lion’s mark, they are salmonella-free, so they should be safe to eat liquid or raw. Raw milk is less clear and pregnant women, infants and the elderly should not consume unpasteurized milk.

‘However, raw chicken is an absolute no-no and food hygiene practices must be followed strictly when handling raw chicken. We never advise people to eat chicken that has not been cooked properly, because the risk of food poisoning is too great.’

“Explaining the flavors of what I eat is so hard to convey to others.

“There’s really nothing like it until you try it yourself.”

A typical eating day for Wes usually consists of two to three meals a day with no snacks in between.

He said, “Sometimes I skip breakfast, but when I’m hungry I usually have three or four raw eggs and a piece of fruit, which is one of the rare things I eat that isn’t meat-based.”

“Lunch is usually my biggest meal of the day, and I usually enjoy 1 pound of raw meat with 1/5 pound of raw unsalted butter, with three or four raw eggs, and another piece of fruit.

‘For dinner I usually eat the same thing, but occasionally with a boiled potato, which is probably the only real thing I eat these days that’s boiled.

“Occasionally I eat a fourth meal in the evening, which usually consists of a house of my homemade ice cream, which is just fresh farm cream, milk, eggs and honey, which is really healthy and also delicious.”

Some of Weston’s favorite meats are raw beef with butter, chicken liver and sheep brains.

He added: ‘I normally keep it pretty simple, and the beef and butter combo is always really good.

‘Chicken liver is probably the best taste of all the livers I’ve tried so far, and I always look forward to having it for lunch or dinner.

“Brain is really hard to find because it’s very regulated, but occasionally you can buy it from butchers and farmers who sell the animal heads for dog food.”

Weston likes to keep his food flavorful and avoid seasonings when preparing his meals.

He said, ‘I’ve always been a pretty humble eater, so I avoid adding anything that compromises the flavor of my meat.

“When I started out, I always put a small amount of steak seasoning on my raw meat to adjust it to taste, but it didn’t take long for me to realize I’d rather have it without it.

‘Many organs taste very similar, despite being from different animals, but I still like to taste the natural flavors that go with them.’

Despite his journey to raw meat only beginning 3 years ago, Wes has always been interested in nutrition and fitness, constantly trying to educate himself on how best to stay fit.

He explained: ‘In my 20s I was super into nutrition and fitness, but I realized my diet needed to be changed when I started having really weird symptoms like eczema, brain fog and a lot of depleted energy.

“It wasn’t until I was 35 that I tried the carnivore diet, which was a huge trend at the time, cutting out everything but cooked meat.

“I ate a lot of rib eye steaks back then and honestly felt really good after my first few weeks, and soon after I started researching a raw-based diet that I’ve adapted to the stage I’m in now.”

One food that is particularly controversial in Weston’s diet is raw chicken, due to the potential risk of salmonella poisoning.

“It’s very controversial, but I believe raw meat contains a natural balance of bacteria that work in symbiosis with our bodies and serve a purpose,” he explained.

“Food poisoning usually comes from partially cooking the meat, which causes the mutation in the bacteria and causes a toxic effect in the body, so it’s safer to eat fully cooked or completely raw meat.

“I’ve eaten hundreds of pounds of raw chicken and have never been anywhere near sick.”

Weston shares his eating habits on his Instagram and YouTube platforms and is no exception to negative comments online.

He explained: “I’ve had a lot of positive things with people telling me that my content is informative and has helped them learn more about a raw meat lifestyle, but I’ve also had a lot of negative things with people saying that my lifestyle is wrong.

‘You get used to it and learn not to be disturbed. I don’t judge them for what they do, I’m an animal lover and can’t stand someone doing harm to an animal, but on the other hand, by allowing people to use animals for food and energy, it shows respect for that animal. ‘

But Weston says his friends and family are very supportive of his unique diet.

He said, “Everyone around me really accepts my eating habits and is always super interested when they first learn it.

‘At home I’m alone with my two dogs Osirus and Gaea, so it was easy to get into this routine.

“I’m in better health, both physically and mentally, better than I’ve ever been in my life.”
