Liver King started his fitness journey by following a (un)conventional bodybuilding diet and training regimen.
However, he was not satisfied with his results and health.
He decided to switch to an ancestral lifestyle after reading the book Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon.
He claims that this lifestyle improved his health, mood, energy, strength, and physique dramatically.
Liver King’s ancestral lifestyle is based on nine principles that he calls the “ancestral tenets”. They are:
- Sleep: Get enough quality sleep every night and follow your natural circadian rhythm.
- Eat: Eat nutrient-dense foods that are compatible with your genetics and physiology, such as grass-fed meat, organs, eggs, raw dairy, honey, fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, etc.
- Move: Move your body in natural and functional ways every day, such as walking, running, jumping, climbing, lifting, throwing, etc.
- Shield: Protect yourself from harmful environmental factors such as electromagnetic radiation, toxins, pollutants, etc.
- Connect: Connect with yourself, your family, your friends, your community, and nature on a regular basis.
- Cold: Expose yourself to cold temperatures regularly to boost your metabolism, immunity, and resilience.
- Sun: Get enough sunlight exposure every day to optimize your vitamin D levels and hormonal balance.
- Fight: Challenge yourself physically and mentally every day to overcome obstacles and grow stronger.
- Bond: Express love and gratitude to yourself and others every day to foster positive emotions and relationships.
Liver King documents his ancestral lifestyle on various social media platforms such as TikTok, YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
He has amassed millions of followers who are inspired by his videos and posts.
He also sells his own line of supplements called Ancestral Supplements on his website.
These supplements are made from freeze-dried animal organs and glands sourced from New Zealand grass-fed cattle.
Liver King claims that these supplements can provide various health benefits such as supporting immune function, hormone production, digestion, detoxification, etc.

Liver King’s lifestyle is not without controversy and criticism. He has been accused of using steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs to achieve his muscular physique.

He has also defended his diet as being safe and healthy for him and his family.
He has stated that he eats only high-quality meat and organs from trusted sources and that he follows strict hygiene practices.
He has also argued that his diet is based on ‘scientific evidence‘ and ancestral wisdom.
